New Equilibrium Biosciences discovers drugs that target intrinsically disordered proteins through its integrated computational-experimental platform, with the mission of creating transformative medicines for patients with cancers and neurodegenerative disorders. We are seeking MS- or PhD-level researchers and developers with strong backgrounds and interest in Machine Learning and Computational Chemistry to join our interdisciplinary team starting in Fall 2021. Candidates should be excited about building interdisciplinary computational frameworks to power structure-based drug discovery and revolutionize pharmaceutical development.

Required Qualifications:

  • M.S. or Ph.D. in Computational Chemistry, Theoretical Chemistry, Computational Biology, or a related field; industry or postdoc experience a plus
  • Previous experience with molecular dynamics simulations
  • Positive attitude
  • Attention to detail and enthusiasm for benchmarking

Desired Qualifications (any combination of these):

  • Previous experience with molecular dynamics simulations or proteins or nucleic acids
  • Previous research experiences in force field development
  • Theoretical quantum chemistry coursework
  • Research experience in quantum chemistry
  • Interest in machine learning
  • Previous experiences with interdisciplinary collaborations

Your Responsibilities:

  • Contribute to the development of our AI force field for describing protein motion
  • Generate and curate benchmarking data
  • Work closely with experimentalists, modelers, and medicinal chemists to improve our force field
  • Prepare figures/slides/documents for external presentations
  • Help shape the culture of New Equilibrium Biosciences
