  • M.S. or Ph.D. in Computer Science, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Computational Chemistry, Computational Biology, or a related field; industry or postdoc experience a plus
  • Positive attitude
  • Attention to detail and enthusiasm for benchmarking

Desired Qualifications (any combination of these):

  • Previous research experience in machine learning algorithm development
  • Previous research experience applying AI to solving a challenge in chemistry or biology
  • Previous experience in computational chemistry, e.g. with molecular dynamics simulations or virtual screening
  • Previous experience with molecular dynamics force fields
  • Machine learning coursework
  • Quantum chemistry coursework or research
  • 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
