Hi, all-

Since my lab uses and modifies Gromacs extensively, I thought this would be
a good place to mention this position.  C/C++ is listed in the ad, but
specific Gromacs experience would be especially good.  Note that
applications must go through the U Va site, though questions may be directed
to me.


The University of Virginia's Department of Chemical Engineering is seeking
applications for the position of Research Associate in the research group of
Professor Michael Shirts.

Research projects include the computational design of small molecule
antivirals, improved methods in free energy calculations, and the design of
nonbiological heteropolymers. The successful candidate will collaborate with
other research teams across the U.S. and the world on one or more of these
projects with large potential long term impact on human health.

Minimum requirements: The applicant must have, or expect to shortly receive,
a Ph.D. in computational chemistry, computational biology, chemical
engineering, applied math, material science, computer science, or other
relevant disciplines, as well as research experience in molecular dynamics,
Monte Carlo simulation, protein design, classical statistical mechanics,
drug design, and/or applied math. Scientific programming experience in C/C++
is also very desirable, as well as strong written and oral communications

Review of applications will begin in March 2009 and will continue until the
position is filled, likely starting date Summer 2009. Applicants must apply
on-line at https://jobs.virginia.edu and search by Posting Number 0603248.
Applicants must complete a Candidate Profile online and attach a complete
resume/CV, cover letter and contact information for three references (names,
emails and addresses).
