Dear Gromacs-users,

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
