Extraordinarily gifted computational chemists at all levels of experience sought to join a select research group within a rapidly growing New York-based technology firm known for scientific leadership in the development of computational chemistry software for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. We are looking for individuals with an exceptionally distinguished history of academic and/or industrial accomplishment to join our efforts to fundamentally transform the process of drug discovery.

Candidates should have world-class credentials in computational chemistry, biology, or physics, or in a relevant area of computer science or applied mathematics, and must have unusually strong research and software engineering skills. Relevant areas of experience might include the computation of protein-ligand binding free energies, molecular dynamics and/or Monte Carlo simulations of biomolecular systems, application of statistical mechanics to biomolecular systems, free energy perturbation methods, and methods for speeding up evaluation of electrostatic energies -- but specific knowledge of any of these areas is less critical than exceptional intellectual ability and a demonstrated track record of achievement. Current areas of activity for the firm include structure- and ligand-based drug design, protein structure determination through homology modeling, molecular mechanics force field development, de novo drug design algorithms, and the development of special-purpose hardware to accelerate computational chemistry simulations. 
 
We are eager to add both senior- and junior-level members to our world-class team (including at least one group head with management responsibilities), and are prepared to offer above-market compensation to candidates of truly exceptional ability. Please send your resume (including list of publications, thesis topic, and advisor, if applicable), along with a history of academic performance (including GPAs as well as SAT, GRE, and other standardized test scores), to ilona@chessid-research.com.
