Hi everyone,
  We're expanding our US-based GROMACS development team and are looking to
recruit a postdoctoral researcher in GROMACS software development.  The
primary focus is software as described below, but development and research
liase closely in my group, and there would also be scope for research
work.  Please contact me and/or apply to the position if you are interested.

This position focuses on Gromacs API development, also including ensemble
simulation, parallelization, and cloud computing.

Of note, we will likely also announce a second software developer position
(which could be postdoctoral or more senior) focusing on ensemble-based
simulation software.  Please also contact me if this interests you.


The Kasson laboratory is seeking a postdoctoral scholar to help further the
development of the Gromacs molecular simulation package. We are seeking a
postdoctoral scholar with strong software engineering skills to help build
this widely-used scientific software package. This scholar will gain
experience in and exposure to the broad base of Gromacs users and
developers as well as skills in API design and parallel cloud-computing

Candidates must have a PhD in hand by the start date.  Skills not only in
C++ and Python programming but also version control and code review systems
are essential. A track record of contributions to open-source software is
required as well. Scientific background related to simulation science is
required; competitive candidates will have a track record of scientific
success in graduate study with a strong publication record.  Successful
candidates must also excel at both independent research and close
collaboration in multi-site teams. Candidates will be evaluated on match
for the position, research accomplishments, and research trajectory, in
addition to other factors.

To apply, visit jobs.virginia.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=85131.
Complete a candidate profile online and attach a cover letter with
statement of research interests, a CV with publication list and links to
prior software contributions (Github, commit records for other software
projects, etc.), and contact information for three references.

The University of Virginia is an equal opportunity and affirmative action
employer. Women, minorities, veterans and persons with disabilities are
particularly encouraged to apply.
