Software Developers for Drug Discovery
This job is no longer accepting applications.
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.
Our client is pursuing a long-term strategy aimed at fundamentally transforming the process of drug discovery. The group has developed multiple generations of a special-purpose supercomputer, 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. This full-time role also offers full benefits, generous relocation assistance, and a collegial working environment.
