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 citys 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
