Want to get paid to write open source chemistry code this summer?
Following up on a successful 2016, the Open Chemistry "umbrella" group of open source chemistry projects is looking for student proposals for Google Summer of Code (https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/how-it-works/)
Applications and proposals are due from March 20th until April 3rd. Students who are selected are paid between $US 2400 and $US 6600 for completing their work (https://developers.google.com/open-source/gsoc/help/student-stipends#amounts).
Students can submit their own ideas or work on suggested projects (Avogadro, cclib, RDKit, 3Dmol.js, MSDK, NWChem, Open Babel) Ideas range from easy-to-use web repositories for computational chemistry, OpenMM and GPU enabled molecular mechanics, volumetric rendering, to advanced analytical methods for quantum chemistry. http://wiki.openchemistry.org/GSoC_Ideas_2017

We're looking forward to some great proposals - please circulate widely!
