New York, New York: D.E. Shaw has been making some interesting moves in biomedically-related science. Here they are, looking for drug discoverers:
Extraordinarily gifted scientists with expertise in computer-aided drug design or protein structural modeling are sought to join a New York–based interdisciplinary research group that is pursuing an ambitious, long-term strategy aimed at fundamentally transforming the process of drug discovery.
Candidates should have world-class credentials in drug discovery. Relevant areas of experience might include medicinal chemistry, structure- and fragment-based drug design, molecular modeling, chemo- and bio-informatics, and/or target analysis and selection. Specific knowledge in one or more of these areas is less critical than exceptional intellectual ability and a demonstrated track record of impact in drug development.I wonder what they're up to?
Kingsport, TN: Eastman is looking for an "information scientist"; looking like they're looking for someone with a B.S. in chemistry or chemical engineering and a Master's in Library Science. Interesting.
Columbus, OH: CAS is looking for M.S./Ph.D. chemists with knowledge of organometallic or coordination chemistry.
Manchester, MI: Amcor Rigid Plastics is looking for a group leader for its analytical laboratory; B.S. in chemistry plus industrial experience in QC desired.
