Investigator – Force Field

Location: ,

Responsibilities

  • Develop empirical force fields to accurately model molecular interactions relevant to drug discovery
  • Thoroughly characterize the accuracy of the force fields for a comprehensive set of small molecules that are representative of potential drug molecules
  • Develop robust protocols for parameterizing classical force fields and validate such protocols against a wide range of experimental data
  • Maintain the most accurate versions of force fields in our platform in order to support drug discovery projects

Required Qualifications

  • Highly motivated to develop computational methods for discovering better medicines
  • M.S. or Ph.D. in computational physics/chemistry, physical chemistry/chemical physics, applied mathematics, or related fields
  • Past experience in MD simulations, and/or force field development
  • Extensive programming experience (C/C++ and Python preferred)
  • Excellent communication skills and strong team player

Additional Desirable Qualifications

  • Experience working with a diverse team on an ambitious project
  • Past experience in quantum chemistry
