Pay and perks:

Schrdinger understands it?s people that make a company great. Because of this, we?re prepared to offer a competitive salary, stock options, and a wide range of benefits that include healthcare (with dental and vision), a 401k, pre-tax commuter benefits, a flexible work schedule, and a parental leave program. We have catered meals in the office every day, a company culture that is relaxed but engaged, and over a month of paid vacation time. Our Administrative and Human Resources departments also plan a myriad of fun company-wide events - last summer we went tubing down the Delaware River!

Quantitative Systems Pharmacology (QSP) is a discipline that uses mechanistic mathematical models and disease platforms to enhance the robustness and quality of decision-making from exploratory research through clinical development. We are seeking highly motivated individuals to lead the development and application of QSP models for the in silico evaluation of novel targets and compounds, including preclinical and clinical study design and mechanistic interpretation of results. Successful candidates will be responsible for integrating and sharing data and knowledge in a highly stimulating, collaborative, and multi-disciplinary environment to develop a deeper understanding of physiological systems and disease mechanisms across different therapeutic areas.

We have several open positions at varying levels of experience, from entry level to experienced modelers. For more information, please search our careers site for the following Job IDs:
