Molecular Forcefield Scientist, InterX Inc., Berkeley, CA

Molecular Forcefields Scientist

InterX, an early stage start-up aiming to develop and commercialize techniques for computational drug discovery prediction, is looking for exceptional individuals to add to our team.

We are seeking a talented theoretical physicist/biophysicist to join the force field development team and develop new models to describe inter- and intramolecular interaction of different molecules (such as proteins with drug-like molecules).

The candidate will perform / support original research and will have an opportunity to enhance his/her publication record


  • Newly qualified PhD or a postdoc with expertise in theoretical physics / biophysics / quantum chemistry, or with equivalent experience and expertise
  • Experience in developing Molecular Force-fields of any type a huge plus
  • Deep understanding of forces which govern the quantum world and interaction between molecules (e.g. London force, stacking interaction, cation-p interaction, etc.)
  • Extensive knowledge of organic chemistry and drug-discovery chemistry is a plus
  • Understanding and appreciation of the difference between various quantum chemistry techniques: HF, MP2, CCSD(T), DFT, SAPT, etc.
  • Experience with calculation of molecular and atomic properties with quantum chemistry software such as Gaussian, GAMESS, MolPro, PSI, etc.
  • Experience using molecular dynamics (MD) packages e.g. GROMACS, NAMD, etc. to simulate molecular systems ( protein complexes, homogeneous and heterogeneous liquids, solvation, etc.) highly desirable.
  • Software development experience and fluency in C/C++ a plus.
  • UNIX/Linux fluency and programming in Matlab highly desirable.

Exceptions may be (and have been) made for candidates with extraordinary level of ability and a history of original and unconventional thinking.

Location: Berkeley, CA, Moscow RUS, Pittsburgh PA.
Remote possible for the right candidate.

Some of the benefits of working with us are:

  • Flexible work schedule
  • Very cool, cutting-edge physics and biophysics research
  • Located in Berkeley, CA; ample our-door activities within walking distance.
