A researcher with experience in the development of optimised high performance computing software is required to join a large multi-disciplinary team of researchers on an ambitious research project. You will be expected to extend and develop a large scale biological simulation model built around LAMMPS. Although the codebase for LAMMPS is already parallel the extensions of an Individual Based Model simulation of microbial cells is yet to be parallelised and will form the initial focus for this work.

You must be capable of working in an interdisciplinary environment, with microbiologists, engineers, statisticians and mathematicians. A proven ability to draft excellent manuscripts is required. Excellent skills in collaboratively developing software and good software practices are essential.
