D. E. Shaw Research

The D. E. Shaw Research, a computational biochemistry group based in Manhattan, will be hosting a talk at 5:30 PM on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, in room 304 of the Journalism Building.  During the talk, they will present an overview of their work and answer any questions students may have about the lab. It is an interdisciplinary group and so students of all degree levels and postdocs from a variety of fields are invited to attend.
Food will be served!
D. E. Shaw Research is an independent research laboratory that conducts scientific research and technological development in the field of computational biochemistry.  They have designed and developed multiple generations of Anton, a massively parallel supercomputer that executes MD simulations orders of magnitude faster than was previously possible.  Anton has now simulated the behavior of a number of proteins for periods as long as several milliseconds, revealing biologically and pharmaceutically relevant aspects of protein dynamics.
Members of the group include computational chemists and biologists, computer scientists and applied mathematicians, and computer architects and engineers of all seniority levels, working collaboratively within a tightly coupled interdisciplinary research environment under the leadership of chief scientist Dr. David E. Shaw.
Join us for an overview of our work and a discussion of current openings in the lab.
There will be two speakers: Qi Wang and Stone Jiang

Networking For Scientists

Do you want to get your toe in the door of science careers, or an internship there, but don’t know where to start? Do career fairs or internship fairs intimidate you? Is networking a challenge?

The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) created this video to help with those things!  The following video contains networking tips, etiquette for networking, and different techniques for gaining traction at career fairs and meet ups.
