Dear Gromacs-developers,

please allow me to draw your attention to the position of a Gromacs 
developer/ System administrator that
we have currently available in our group.

Kind regards,

Siewert-Jan Marrink

Post-doctoral position in the Molecular Dynamics Group at the University 
of Groningen (the Netherlands)

A full-time post-doctoral research position is available with the 
Molecular Dynamics (MD) group of the Groningen Biomolecular Sciences and 
Biotechnology Institute (http://www.rug.nl/gbb) at the University of 
Groningen, the Netherlands, to commence asap.

*General information*

The research of the Molecular Dynamics group is focused on the 
understanding and prediction of macroscopic (experimentally observable) 
properties of biomolecular systems such as proteins, nucleic acids and 
lipid aggregates in terms of the interactions between atoms. In 
particular work concentrates on the development of tools (i.e. 
simulation software, atomic force fields and theoretical models) that 
can be used to understand the physico-chemical basis of interactions and 
dynamic processes within biomolecular systems. The group has a long 
history of pioneering simulations of biomolecular systems. It is 
associated with the development of two internationally recognized 
simulation packages GROningen MOlecular Simulation library (GROMOS) and 
the GROningen MAchine for Chemical Simulations (GROMACS). The group is 
embedded in the Groningen Biomolecular Sciences and Biotechnology 
Institute and a member of the Materials Science Center (MSC+). The 
University of Groningen registers 21,000 students and 5,000 employees. 
Situated in a city of 180,000 the university actively contributes to 
keeping the average age of the city’s inhabitants as low as 35. With 
this young age follow ample opportunities for cultural expression and 
vivid social life.

*Job description*

The post-doc position is for 1 year initially, with a possible extension 
up to three years depending on funds. Work will focus on the development 
of the GROMACS simulation package and the application of innovative 
simulation methodology to biomolecular systems. The person appointed 
will also play a major role in the development and management of the 
groups computer systems.


Candidates must have a PhD degree in an appropriate discipline such as 
(bio)chemistry, (bio)physics or (bio)informatics with relevant 
experience in computer simulation, biophysics, and software development. 
Experience with GROMACS is desirable but not required.

*Conditions of employement*

The University of Groningen offers an appointment for an initial period 
of one year. The job is full-time(38 hours per week) with salary up to € 
3.453,- gross per month (salary scale 10), depending on qualifications 
and work experience.
