following Erik Lindahl's suggestion to send more postdoc offers to this
list, I couldn't resist. Although it is not clearly stated, the position
below will also include some work on MD, and Gromacs in particular, so
I thought it might be relevant to this list and audience.

Marc Baaden

Virtual Reality in Computational Biology - Postdoctoral position at IBPC, 
Paris, France

Postdoc position
FlowVR Nano: a virtual laboratory

Project description (see also http://www.shaman.ibpc.fr/fvnano_postdoc.pdf)
We are seeking a highly motivated research programmer or a postdoctoral 
fellow to develop software tools for interactive high performance 
simulations coupling virtual reality, scientific visualization and 
parallel simulation through a full cooperation with on-going projects. 
The main application at the centre of this project targets handling and 
exploring simulations of biological or physical complex objects at the 
nanoscopic scale, using a virtual reality platform with haptic feedback. 
The successful candidate will join our group developing state-of-the-art 
computer simulation methods. This position is a unique training 
opportunity in a multi-disciplinary environment in collaboration with 
three other leading teams in France who are experts on complementary 

Qualification and experience
The candidate should have a PhD in visualisation, computer graphics, 
virtual reality or a related field. Skills in haptics would be 
appreciated. Specific experience with scientific computing in general and 
computational biology in particular is not required, but would represent 
an important advantage over other candidates. Strong skill in computer 
programming (in particular Objective-C, Cocoa), VTK or virtual reality 
and a good background in computer science is also an important 
prerequisite. Ability to work effectively in a team-based environment and 
leadership qualities are essential. Funding is available immediately.

About the host institute
The "Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique" was created in 1930 by the 
Foundation Edmond de Rothschild. It is associated with the CNRS (Centre 
National de la Recherche Scientifique), a leading international 
scientific institution offering an exceptional environment to scientists 
early in their career.

Closing date: 20 November 2007
Interested candidates should send a CV and a letter of motivation as PDF 
document to baaden at ibpc.fr. Please include the names of three referees.
