Subject: 22.10.12 Research Software Engineer, OpenBioSim Community Interest Company, Remote (UK)

OpenBioSim is a recently established not-for-profit organisation that develops and maintains 
open-source scientific software solutions for the benefits of stakeholders in academia and industry. 
We have a particular focus on molecular simulation methodologies for pharmaceutical R&D 
applications that have potential for increasing the efficiency of drug discovery processes. 
We work with leading life sciences software vendors and biotechnology organisations to accelerate 
the development of innovative computational products that help improve human health. 

The opportunity 

We are currently looking for a research software engineer to work alongside computational chemists
and drug discovery scientists on collaborative open-source software projects. You will work on making
 cutting edge molecular simulation methods accessible to a broad range of scientists working in 
industry and academia. 
Different profiles may fit this role and we will consider computational chemists interested in a taking 
on a software-focussed role, as well as software engineers with a background in physical sciences. 

What the role will involve

	Work alongside computational chemists to develop robust implementations of cutting-edge 
molecular simulation techniques.
	Work with collaborators to benchmark software from academia
	Contribute to the development of large collaborative open-source software projects such as 
the BioSimSpace framework for interoperable molecular simulations. 
	Apply best practices for developing, maintaining and distributing open-source software 
development (code reviews, writing unit tests, continuous integration, documentation, user support, 
	Work alongside engineers and researchers to integrate open-source solutions as components of
 proprietary drug discovery platforms. 

We offer a fully remote position and will consider part-time or full-time appointments. 

Skills requirements
