Biochemical Information & Annotation Specialist
The RCSB Protein Data Bank
is a publicly accessible information portal for researchers and
students interested in structural biology. At its center is the PDB
archive, the sole international 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
the mysteries of human disease.
The primary mission of the RCSB PDB is to provide accurate, well-annotated data in the most timely and efficient way possible to facilitate new discoveries and scientific advances. The RCSB processes, stores, and disseminates these important data, and develops the software tools needed to assist users in depositing and accessing structural information.
The RCSB Protein Data Bank at Rutgers University in Piscataway, NJ has an opening for a Biochemical Information & Annotation Specialist to curate and standardize macromolecular structures for distribution in the PDB archive. The annotation specialist communicates daily with members of the deposition community, and annotates, releases, and updates entries in the PDB archive. BLAST, PubMed, and other tools are used for the annotation process performed on a linux box.
A background in biological chemistry (PhD, MS, BS or BA) is required. Experience with linux computer systems, biological databases, crystallography, and/or NMR spectroscopy is a strong advantage. The successful candidate should be self-motivated, pay close attention to detail, possess strong written and oral communication skills, and meet deadlines.
This position offers the opportunity to participate in an exciting project with significant impact on the scientific community.
