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.David Shaw is, among other things, a hedge fund owner. I think it's interesting that he's now attempting to do drug discovery -- the contrast between him and Andy Grove is instructive and commendable.
Albany, NY: AMRI wishes to hire a B.S./M.S. analytical chemist for finished drug dosage form testing, looks like. They are paying 40-65k.
Wilmington, DE: Fish and Richardson are looking to hire technology specialists; a Ph.D. in chemistry with strength in organic chemistry is desired.
You guys are back!: Polyera Corporation (they of the romance novel ads) is back and looking for organic chemists. Here's a position for a Ph.D. synthetic chemist towards organic photovoltaics; they're offering 80-175k. (Um, let me cast doubt on that last number by looking at their Glassdoor profile.)
They're also looking for a B.S./M.S. synthetic chemist, with this interesting comment in their desired characteristics:
Commitment and Tenure. You’re looking to stay in one place for at least 3-5 years. When you find a place you like, you tend to stay with it.I wonder if the company would make the same commitment that they're requesting of their employees?
