Subject: 18.08.27 Force Field Development at D. E. Shaw Research
D. E. Shaw Research is seeking outstanding scientists with expertise in 
force field development to join our New Yorkbased team.  This is a unique 
opportunity to develop and work with transformative technology in a 
dynamic, interdisciplinary environment.  

Relevant areas of experience might include development of physics-based 
force fields, modeling of polarization and quantum effects, novel 
parameterization strategies (for example, machine learning, statistical 
inference, or multi-objective methods), ligand and small molecule 
parameterization, and force field validation and verification.  Specific 
knowledge of any particular area is less critical, however, than 
exceptional intellectual ability and a record of creativity and 
accomplishment. Successful candidates will contribute to the development 
of more accurate force fields for biomolecular simulation.

We are committed to fostering a stimulating, rewarding, and flexible work 
environment, and we offer above-market compensation to candidates of truly 
exceptional ability.  We are eager to add both senior scientists and 
postdoctoral fellows to our world-class team.

D. E. Shaw Research is an independent research group that is pursuing an 
ambitious, long-term strategy aimed at fundamentally transforming the 
process of drug discovery.  We have developed a special-purpose 
supercomputer, ANTON, capable of executing molecular dynamics (MD) 
simulations orders of magnitude faster than was previously possible.  Our 
current projects include investigations of proteins and other biomedically 
relevant macromolecules as well as the development of computational 
chemistry methods to enable more accurate and effective MD simulations.

D. E. Shaw Research is an equal opportunity employer, dedicated to the goal
of building a diverse workforce. We welcome inquiries from all 
exceptionally well-qualified applicants, regardless of race, color, 
nationality, national or ethnic origin, religion or religious belief,
