Hello, GROMACS users!

I am recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to join my group here at CU
Boulder for a NIH-sponsored collaborative project to develop GROMACS. The
researcher will work collaboratively (with researchers in my group, in
Peter Kasson’s group at U.Va., as well as the main development team in
Stockholm) to improve the robustness and usability of GROMACS as well as
implement new Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics methods.  Strong software
engineering skills are very beneficial as well as a deep understanding of
simulation theory and statistical mechanics. We would also particularly
appreciate already active members of the molecular simulation development
community.  As always, members of groups under-represented in the molecular
simulation field are especially encouraged to apply.  The official job
posting is below, along with the link to the application.

    The Shirts research group in the Department of Chemical and Biological
Engineering is hiring a highly capable research associate to help develop
the GROMACS molecular simulation package. GROMACS is an open-source project
with a strong international development community as well as a 10,000+ user
base. This position is part of a new NIH funded collaborative effort
between the Shirts group and the Kasson group (at the University of
Virginia) to improve the robustness, functionality, and usability of
GROMACS, offering the candidate the opportunity to positively affect the
work of thousands of researchers across the globe. Candidates will have the
opportunity to learn state-of-the-art simulation methodology and work
collaboratively with a global team of developers.

    This position requires a Ph.D. in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering,
Physics, Computer Science or a related field. It requires very strong
statistical mechanical, molecular simulation and theoretical skills, as
well as significant software engineering experience and ability. Experience
in C++ and Python is preferred, as well as experience with version control,
code review systems, and team-oriented software development.  Competitive
candidates will have a track record of scientific success in graduate study
with a strong publication record.
