Fellowships at D. E. Shaw Research

Each year, D. E. Shaw Research organizes highly selective paid fellowship programs for undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers working in scientific and technical fields relevant to our group’s research. Each of our fellowship programs is an intensive, two-day symposium that includes scientific and technical presentations and workshops, career development discussions, and networking with peers and members of our team.

Upcoming Fellowship Program

Our next fellowship is our Graduate and Postdoctoral Women’s Fellowship, which will take place virtually on May 11 and 12, 2023.

We will consider applicants who self-identify as women, are enrolled in a U.S.‑based doctoral or postdoctoral program, and apply computation, machine learning, or theoretical approaches to problems in chemistry, biophysics, drug discovery, or related fields.

To apply, please email your CV or résumé to DESRESFellowship@DEShawResearch.com with the subject line “Graduate and Postdoctoral Women’s Fellowship” by April 17, 2023.

We anticipate having around 20 participants. We are planning for the fellowship program to take place via Zoom in the afternoons (ET) of May 11 and 12, and participants will have the option of delivering a 5‑minute “flash talk” about their work. Each participant will receive a $1,500 stipend.
