  • Help develop our modeling software

Required Qualifications:

  • Ph.D. in chemistry, biology, bioinformatics, physics, or a related field
  • +3 years of experience in Molecular Modeling: computational chemistry/biology
  • Experience in Computer-Aided Drug Design: structure/ligand-based drug design, docking, virtual screening, QSAR, pharmacophore modeling
  • Comfortable on the Linux command-line
  • Undergraduate knowledge of statistics

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Statistical modeling
  • Knowledge of medicinal chemistry
