DescriptionD. E. Shaw Research is pursuing long-term projects aimed at transforming the process of drug discovery and achieving major advances in the fields of biochemistry and molecular biology using high-performance computation. To further these goals, we have designed and built three generations of the ANTON® special-purpose supercomputer, as well as a variety of simulation tools that run on commodity clusters and GPUs. We are now seeking additional chip designers and VLSI engineers to join our interdisciplinary New York–based team of talented engineers and scientists. These hires will focus on continuing to develop state-of-the-art technology in support of our mission, and will have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues across our group who have a variety of technological and scientific backgrounds.
Expertise in the architecture, analysis, or implementation of hardware solutions is required. Particularly relevant experience would include high-speed (multi-GHz) ASIC design, current custom chip technologies, parallel computation, microprocessor architecture, machine learning acceleration, hardware/software co-design, computer arithmetic, high-speed interconnection networks, and digital systems simulation. Excellent analytical and communication skills are required. We are looking to add innovative contributors who share our commitment to fostering a stimulating, positive, and collaborative work environment.

Company DescriptionD. E. Shaw Research is an independent research laboratory that conducts scientific research and technological development in the field of computational biochemistry. Our group focuses on the design of novel algorithms and machine architectures for high-speed MD simulations of proteins and other biological macromolecules, with the aim of significantly advancing the process of drug discovery. We have designed and developed multiple generations of ANTON®, a massively parallel supercomputer that executes MD simulations orders of magnitude faster than was previously possible. Anton has now simulated the behavior of a number of proteins for several milliseconds, revealing biologically and pharmaceutically relevant aspects of protein dynamics.
