Research on Algorithms and Architectures for Computational Biochemistry
Computer scientists, systems architects, electrical engineers and systems
software professionals are sought to join a rapidly growing New York–based
research group pursuing an ambitious, long-term project aimed at achieving
major scientific advances in the field of biochemistry and fundamentally
transforming the process of drug discovery.
This research effort is being financed by a technology development firm with
approximately $8 billion in aggregate capital, and operates under the direct
scientific leadership of its founder.
Among the group’s current research activities is a project aimed at
developing a massively parallel special-purpose supercomputer and innovative
mathematical and computational techniques to direct unprecedented
computational power toward the solution of key scientific and technical
problems in the fields of molecular simulation and molecular design.
Successful candidates will be working closely with a number of the world’s
leading computational chemists and biologists, and will have the opportunity
not only to participate in an exciting entrepreneurial venture with
considerable economic potential, but to make fundamental contributions
within the fields of biology, chemistry and medicine.
Serious candidates will have an exceptionally distinguished history of
academic and/or industrial accomplishment in computer science, electrical
engineering, applied mathematics, or a related area. Particularly relevant
areas of expertise might include parallel computation, high-speed
interconnection networks, scientific computing, numerical analysis,
optimization, the analysis of algorithms, operating systems, digital systems
simulation, reconfigurable computing, and ASIC design, but specific
knowledge of any of these areas is less critical than exceptional
intellectual ability and a demonstrated track record of achievement. They
are prepared to reward exceptionally well-qualified individuals with
