D. E. Shaw Research – Fall Summit for Women in the Computational Sciences

Friday, November 7, 2014
D. E. Shaw Research seeks undergraduate women pursuing degrees in the computational sciences to join us at our offices in New York City for a day of presentations, networking, and plenty of food and drink!  This is an opportunity to learn about the career opportunities available at D. E. Shaw Research and explore our scientific computing and research projects in detail.  Additionally, you’ll have the chance to connect with women from across the country who share your interest in science and technology. 
Enjoy the vantage point from our Times Square office and an evening in New York City on us!  We will cover the cost of travel to and from New York as well as hotel accommodations for two nights for all selected attendees.
If you are studying computer science, engineering, biology, chemistry, physics, applied math, or another scientific field with a focus on computational methods, and are interested in attending this event, please email your resume to Careers@DEShawResearch.com with the subject line “DESRES Fall Summit” by Monday, September 15.  We can only invite a limited number of attendees to the summit, but we welcome submissions from students of all experience levels in the computational sciences.
D. E. Shaw Research is a scientific computing and research group based in Manhattan.  Our team develops custom hardware and software to carry out structural biology and biochemistry research, focusing primarily on molecular dynamics simulations of proteins and other biological macromolecules.  This is an ambitious, long-term project with the potential to transform the process of drug discovery.
