Thu Feb 7 10:11:52 PST 2019
The RCSB Protein Data Bank (RCSB PDB,rcsb.org
is a publicly accessible information portal for researchers and students
interested in structural biology. At its center is the PDB Core Archive
– the single global repository for the 3-dimensional structure data of
biological macromolecules. These structures hold significant promise for
the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries in the search for new
drugs and in efforts to understand human disease.
The primary mission of the RCSB PDB is to provide accurate,
well-annotated data in the most timely and efficient way to facilitate
new discoveries and scientific advances. The RCSB PDB processes, stores,
and disseminates these important data, and develops the software tools
needed to assist users in depositing (in collaboration with worldwide
PDB partners) and accessing structural information.
The RCSB PDB at Rutgers University in Piscataway, NJ has an opening for
a Biochemical Information & Annotation Specialist (Biocurator) to
curate, validate, and standardize macromolecular structures for
distribution in the PDB Core Archive. 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
The position is an academic position with state benefit. The salary is
compatible with faculty level.
A background in cryo-electron microscopy or small molecule
crystallography or macromolecular crystallography is a strong advantage.
Biological chemistry in PhD is required. Experience with metalloprotein,
small molecules, linux computer systems, 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, shift
priority, and meet deadlines.
This position offers the opportunity to participate in exciting projects
with significant impact on the scientific community.
