Software developers sought to design and implement high-performance code for massively parallel special-purpose supercomputers. Our ANTON® supercomputers, which combine cutting-edge ASICs with proprietary software, speed up molecular dynamics simulations by orders of magnitude and are designed in part to fundamentally transform the process of drug discovery.  Successful hires will join an interdisciplinary research group pursuing an ambitious, long-term project aimed at achieving major scientific advances in the fields of biochemistry and molecular biology.

Relevant areas of expertise might include parallel programming, embedded systems, multicore and GPU programming, machine learning, numerical analysis, optimization, the analysis of algorithms, high-performance distributed computing or architectural simulation, but specific knowledge of any of these areas is less critical than intellectual curiosity, versatility, and a track record of achievement.

We are looking to add innovative contributors who share our commitment to fostering a stimulating, positive, and collaborative work environment.  We also provide generous relocation and immigration assistance to new hires.  In addition, we strive to support the personal and professional needs of our team members by offering generous benefits, opportunities for community engagement, and a variety of learning and development programs.  We will consider candidates at all levels of experience.
