Dear members of the CCPBioSim community,
Scope of Projects:
The proposed project should be a tool that is useful to the biomolecular simulation community, for example in setting up systems for simulations, analysing simulations, or creating workflows. It can be either taking work from within a group and making it into a package that can be widely distributed or adding functionality to an existing software package. We expect the project to be clearly defined and focused so that it can be completed with 6 months of 1 full time equivalent staff effort (including time to write good documentation).
- Institution – The primary proposer must be from a university or non-profit institution. Collaborations with other institutions or industrial partners are welcome.
- Residence – We are happy to participate in international collaborations. However, when considering projects of equal scientific merit, preference will be given to UK resident researchers.
- Career stage – People at any stage in their career can submit a proposal. If you are a student or on a short term contract particular attention will be paid to the project sustainability. Please think about what will happen to the project when you come to the end of your contract or move on to a new job.
If a member of the project team is taking leave for the birth of a baby, adoption, other caring/health needs, or bereavement, we will work with them to the best of our ability to support the leave and their return to work.
