D. E. Shaw Research is seeking outstanding scientists with expertise in quantum chemistry to join our New York–based team. This is a unique opportunity to develop and work with transformative technology in a dynamic, interdisciplinary environment.
Relevant areas of experience might include quantum chemical method development, high-accuracy electronic structure calculations (specifically, coupled-cluster, many-body perturbation, and symmetry-adapted perturbation theories), non-covalent and many-body interactions, condensed phase effects, energy decomposition analysis, and machine learning applied to molecular systems. 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.
