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