Subject: 22.06.30 Software Developers for Drug Discovery
Cheminformatics software developers are sought to join an ambitious, 
well-funded interdisciplinary research group based in New York City.  
Successful candidates will work closely with our world-class team of 
chemists, biologists, and computer scientists on developing software that 
is critical to our drug discovery efforts.  

Ideal candidates will have extensive experience with cheminformatics 
software packages; strong Python and C/C++ programming skills; experience 
with development for cluster architectures; and familiarity with Linux/UNIX 
operating systems.  Relevant areas of expertise include virtual screening 
and docking, computer-aided small molecule design, molecular modeling, 
and engineering of large-scale chemical databases, but specific knowledge 
of any of these areas is less critical than intellectual curiosity, 
versatility, and a track record of achievement.

D. E. Shaw Research is pursuing a long-term strategy aimed at fundamentally 
transforming the process of drug discovery.  Our group has developed 
multiple generations of a special-purpose supercomputer, ANTON, capable 
of simulating biomolecular phenomena orders of magnitude faster than was 
previously possible, and we are currently working on a number of drug 
discovery programs focusing on drug targets that span a range of 
therapeutic areas.  Successful hires will be responsible for developing 
our tools and methodologies for virtual screening and hit-finding drug 
discovery, leveraging our custom supercomputers. 

We take great pride in the caliber of our team, and we offer above-market 
compensation.  We also provide generous relocation and immigration 
assistance to new hires.  In addition, we strive to support the personal 
and professional needs of our team members by offering generous benefits, 
opportunities for community engagement, and a variety of learning and 
development programs.
