  • A computer-aided molecular design enthusiast (both in theory and application) - specifically, someone with solid experience in structure-based drug design and computational modeling workflows
  • An excellent communicator and presenter with superb organizational skills
  • A dedicated scientist interested in helping to advance drug discovery research
  • A creative person who enjoys helping others solve problems
  • A self-motivated team player who takes ownership of projects and manages their own time well

What you’ll do:

  • Provide scientific support to current and prospective customers, which includes demonstration of optimal use of our life science software suites, facilitation of interactions between customers and product development teams, and general scientific guidance
  • Engage in cutting-edge scientific research and advise our customers on best practices for computational modeling
  • Publish scientific papers and present at conferences

What you should have:

  • PhD in computational chemistry, bioinformatics, or a related field
  • Postdoctoral research and/or relevant experience in the commercial sector
  • A solid understanding of the commercial drug discovery process and of medicinal chemistry
  • Excellent English language skills (both verbal and written); French and/or Spanish language skills would be considered a bonus
  • Willingness to travel
  • Experience in one of the following is a plus: 
    • Enhanced sampling dynamics/free energy calculations
    • Ligand-based drug design, chemoinformatics, machine learning
    • Python programming experience
 
As an equal opportunity employer, Schrödinger hires outstanding individuals into every position in the company. People who work with us have a high degree of engagement, a commitment to working effectively in teams, and a passion for the company's mission. We place the highest value on creating a safe environment where our employees can grow and contribute, and refuse to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religious belief, sex, age, disability, national origin, alienage or citizenship status, marital status, partnership status, caregiver status, sexual and reproductive health decisions, gender identity or expression, or sexual orientation. To us, "diversity" isn't just a buzzword, but an important element of our core principles and key business practices. We believe that diverse companies innovate better and think more creatively than homogenous ones because they take into account a wide range of viewpoints. For us, greater diversity doesn't mean better headlines or public images - it means increased adaptability and profitability.
