Description D. E. Shaw Research is coming on campus to discuss internship and full-time opportunities in the area of computational biochemistry. Biology, Chemistry, and other majors in addition to EECS are most welcome! Refreshment served! D. E. Shaw Research is an independent research laboratory that conducts basic scientific research in the field of computational biochemistry under the direct scientific leadership of Dr. David E. Shaw, who serves as its Chief Scientist. At present, the lab is involved primarily in: * The design of novel algorithms and machine architectures for high-speed molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of proteins and other biological macromolecules. *The application of such simulations to basic scientific research in structural biology and biochemistry, and to the process of computer-aided drug design. Members of the lab include computational chemists and biologists, computer scientists and applied mathematicians, and computer architects and engineers, all working collaboratively within a tightly coupled interdisciplinary research environment.
