Silicon Therapeutics


Silicon Therapeutics is building an exceptional team of outstanding life scientists and computer scientists with a unifying belief that we can make better medicines using computers. We foster a collaborative, respectful, and flexible work environment that allows individuals to thrive. Our supportive and open work environment enhances synergies among individuals, thereby maximizing the quality and efficiency of our efforts. We embrace diversity and value different perspectives, ideas, and identities of everyone on the team.

We are looking for an experienced scientific programmer to join our Suzhou-based China team. Working closely with our US-based platform team, the candidate will develop and implement advanced physics-based computational methods—including but not limited to molecular dynamics simulations, free energy calculations, and quantum chemistry calculations—to solve critical issues in drug discovery. Competitive pay, equity, strong perks, and a fun working environment, along with the opportunity to do cutting edge science to design better medicines, are all good reasons to join us!


  • Develop algorithms to accelerate our physics-based simulations and analysis
  • Develop robust, scalable software that implement state-of-the-art algorithms in computational chemistry
  • Investigate the applicability of various algorithms in computational drug discovery


  • Highly motivated to develop computational methods for discovering better medicines
  • S. or Ph.D. in computational physics/chemistry, physical chemistry/chemical physics, applied mathematics, or related fields
  • Extensive programming experience (C/C++ and Python preferred)
  • Excellent communication skills and strong team player
  • Experience with high performance computing and parallel programming (e.g. MPI, openMP, CUDA) a plus
  • Experience working with a diverse team on an ambitious project a plus

New China Office

  • Silicon Therapeutics is building a start-of-the-art facility in the new biotech center of Suzhou.
  • This three-story, 1200 square meter facility will host a supercomputer, synthetic chemistry and biochemistry work spaces along with office areas, conference rooms and a roof-top garden.
