- Tijdelijk contract / Tijdelijke opdracht
- Uren per week:
- 36 - 40 uur
- € 3111 - € 4084 per maand
The candidate will work in the context of the European Open Science Cloud Hub (EOSC-Hub) project, a 30 million EU e-infrastructure project providing a variety of compute services to the scientific community. In the context of this project, the successful applicant will work toward improving the computational services developed in the Utrecht group, with as flagship software HADDOCK. These are centred around the common theme of modelling biomolecular interactions. The work will involve maintaining, improving and further developing the software and computational services of the group, developing training material, providing user support, and contributing to various active research projects of the group. The candidate will also be responsible for reporting and dissemination of results, and interaction with the other partners in the EOSC-Hub project.
The applicant should possess a PhD degree with some background in structural biology. Experience in computing (under Linux), web development and programming skills (especially in Python) is a requisite. The applicant should also be experienced in high-throughput computing (grid and/or cloud) and system administration. Next to that, strong management and communication skills are expected in order to operate in the context of a large international consortium.
The candidate is offered a full-time position for two years, which can be extended. The gross salary is in the range between €3,111 and maximum €4,084 (scale P Collective Labour Agreement Dutch Universities) per month for a full-time employment.
