D. E. Shaw Research is looking for individuals with an extraordinary record of academic and/or professional achievement to play an integral role in developing its businesses. Members of the Strategic Growth department are responsible for formulating and executing strategies to identify and recruit world-class scientists and engineers. This is a dynamic, high-visibility position within the firm, which offers multiple opportunities to learn about, and grow with the firm's various ventures. Our lab has shed new light on biomolecular phenomena such as protein folding, protein dynamics, and protein-drug interactions by directing unprecedented computational power toward the solution of key problems in the fields of biomolecular simulation and design.

Candidates should be critical thinkers with exceptional communication and analytical skills. We are particularly interested in applicants who have graduate level experience in chemistry, biology, computer science, or engineering, but having a background in one of these areas is not a requirement. Management ability is a plus. Strategic Growth Associates will be working closely with a number of the world’s leading scientists and engineers, and will have the opportunity not only to participate in an exciting entrepreneurial venture, but to make groundbreaking contributions within the fields of biology, chemistry, and medicine.
