Title: Visiting Research Programmer/Systems Analyst

The Computational Biology Group at NCSA/University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign ( is seeking a visiting research
programmer/systems analyst.  The project funding this position is at the
beginning stage of three-year funding.

Position Description: The Computational Biology Group has developed the
Biology Workbench, a Web-based computational environment for
bioinformatics.  The new project involves integrating simulation programs
for biological molecules, such as molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo, Brownian
dynamics, and drift-diffusion theory, into the Workbench environment.
Research programming is needed both to integrate these methodologies into
the Workbench environment, and for algorithmic refinement and development
of the methodologies themselves.

The successful candidate will be encouraged to broaden his/her technical 
skills and scientific knowledge on the job. This position will provide a
great opportunity to work at the cutting edge at the development of a new
Web-based computational architecture that NCSA director Larry Smarr has
termed a "new way of computing for the 21st century." 

Qualifications: The ideal candidate will be a versatile programmer, since
both Web interfaces and simulation algorithms are involved in the project.
Experience in scientific programming is a plus.  The person who assumes
this positon will join a dynamic team of senior scientists, postdocs,
programmers, and students who are working in various aspects of
computational biology.     

Application information: The position is available immediately.  It will be
open until a suitable candidate is found. 
Minority and women candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
