Subject: 18.02.26 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 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 committed to building a diverse team.  We offer 
an intellectually rigorous and stimulating work environment that is 
also supportive, flexible, and welcoming.  We do not discriminate in 
employment matters on the basis of race, color, gender, age, religion, 
national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, 
pregnancy, marital status, military service eligibility, veteran status,
