If you have any interested students/postdocs/other it would be great  
if you could help us spread this announcement!

(There's also an online version at http://www.dbb.su.se/Vacancies )

As part of a 5-year European Union FP7 project to push GROMACS to use  
next-generation hardware we are looking for an outstanding individual  
who would like to work both on new algorithms for free energy  
calculation, streaming computing hardware, parallelization, and  
applications to biomolecular systems such as ion channels and drug  

The researcher will be an integral part of the GROMACS team at the  
center for Biomembrane Research (http://www.cbr.su.se) and work both  
with us and collaborators in Uppsala, Germany, and Stanford University  
in the United States, and will get excellent opportunities to interact  
both with other research groups and hardware vendors of their choice.

The ideal candidate should preferrably be experienced with  
computational chemistry, classical simulation techniques, as well as  
programming in C and/or C++. Prior knowledge of streaming computing/ 
GPU programming is a bonus, but in selecting candidates our evaluation  
will primarily be based on the ability to creatively address complex  
scientific problems.

Depending on background, the employment can be either as researcher,  
staff programmer or possibly even PhD student. With a researcher  
appointment and suitable background it will also be possible to take  
on PhD students.

To apply, please submit a CV, possibly list of publications, and a  
brief letter (1 page) describing your background and interest to Erik  
Lindahl (lindahl at cbr.su.se). Evaluation of applications will begin  
november 1 and continue until the position has been filled. The  
tentative starting date is december (or possibly january) 1. For more  
information, contact Erik Lindahl.

Best wishes,

Erik Lindahl
