Subject: 17.09.27 Computational Scientist in Biomolecular Simulation, STFC Daresbury Laboratory, Daresbury, Cheshire, UK
Computational Scientist in Biomolecular Simulation, STFC Daresbury Laboratory, Daresbury, Cheshire, UK
Salary: £38,915 to 43,072
(dependent upon qualifications and experience and including RRA)
About The Role
The Collaborative Computational Project for Biomolecular Simulation (CCP-BioSim; ccpbiosim.ac.uk) was established in 2011 with support from EPSRC to strengthen molecular simulations at the life sciences interface, and develop links with academia/industry.
We have a vacancy for a talented and community-minded Computational Scientist to work in partnership with the CCPBioSim project on a range of development projects in biomolecular simulation, together with associated training and dissemination activities. The primary responsibility is to improve biomolecular simulation techniques for the benefit of the CCP-BioSim community of scientists. This includes, for instance, further development of the FESetup tool for free energy simulations. A particular theme of future development will be advancing multiscale modelling capabilities, building on the work of the CCP-BioSim flagship software project, to develop protocols for enzyme modelling at the coarse-grained, atomistic and electronic scales, involving multiscale software such as the QM/MM package ChemShell.
Strong software development skills are essential, preferably with experience of developing scientific codes for use by others. You should have experience of running parallelised codes on HPC, with an appreciation of typical scaling behaviour. Previous experience of writing parallel code would be an advantage.
The post requires extensive interactions with the community of scientists and developers, and therefore you need excellent communication skills. You will also need to balance multiple projects and so you must be able to manage your time and your interactions with different collaborators.
For further information about this position please contact Martyn Winn ( martyn.winn(~)stfc.ac.uk ) or Tom Keal ( thomas.keal(~)stfc.ac.uk ).
An exceptional index linked pension scheme, 30 days leave allowance and flexible working are offered.
