[ccp4bb] Two position openings at RCSB PDB/Rutgers University- BIOCHEMICAL INFORMATION & ANNOTATION SPECIALIST

Curate, validate, and standardize macromolecular structures from the PDB community. Participate in exciting projects with significant impact on the scientific community.

Data archives are critical to research and education. They provide safe and secure storage of valuable scientific data, and ensure that information is freely available to the world. Data curation is critical for these resources. In the case of PDB, data are carefully reviewed and annotated by wwPDB curators before public release. Expert curation of data coming into PDB is critical for ensuring findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reusability (FAIR). Biocurators communicate daily with members of the deposition community, and annotate, publicly release, and update entries in the PDB archive.

The RCSB PDB at Rutgers University in Piscataway, NJ has two openings for a Biochemical Information & Annotation Specialist (Biocurator) to curate, validate, and standardize macromolecular structures for distribution in the PDB Core Archive.

This position offers the opportunity to participate in exciting projects with significant impact on the scientific community. The position is an academic position with state benefit. The salary is compatible with faculty level.

Knowledge and Skills:

  • PhD in Biological chemistry or chemistry is required
  • Background in 3DEM or crystallography has strong advantage
  • Experience with small molecules such as organometallic complexes is preferred
  • Knowledge of Linux computer systems and biological databases is preferred

The successful candidate should be self-motivated, pay close attention to detail, possess strong interpersonal, communication, and writing skills, with the ability to handle multiple projects, shifting priorities, while meeting deadlines. This academic position has state benefits and a faculty-level salary.
