About the team/job
The Protein Data Bank in Europe (PDBe; pdbe.org) is a founding partner of the Worldwide Protein Data Bank organisation (wwPDB; wwpdb.org), which maintains the PDB, the global archive of 3D structural data on biomacromolecules.
The PDBe team further maintains a number of databases that support deposition and advanced search and analysis services for structural biologists and the wider scientific community. The team consists of an international and inter-disciplinary mix of professionals (scientists and IT specialists).
We are looking to recruit an expert structural biologist, bioinformatician or cheminformatician to join the PDBe curation team. High-quality curation of new depositions is essential for PDB and EMDB to remain the authoritative global sources of biomacromolecular structure information.
The work involves annotating preliminary PDB and EMDB submissions and extracting relevant biological information. PDBe staff annotate more than a third of all PDB and EMDB depositions worldwide. The work will also involve analysis of structure data and enriching PDBe tools and services. The data curators also participate in developing training material and delivery of workshops and in outreach activities.
The candidate should have a PhD and a minimum 2 year’s work experience in structural biology, bioinformatics or cheminformatics and should demonstrate a working knowledge of small molecule chemistry and/or macromolecular structure, and ideally a broad knowledge in molecular biology or biochemistry.
The post holder should be able to work both independently and in close collaboration with the wwPDB OneDep and PDBe team members. Communication with depositors is an essential part of the job. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills as well as excellent knowledge of English are therefore required.
You might also have
A few years of post-doctoral research experience in structural biology, as well as hands-on experience in the determination of macromolecular or small molecule structures are a distinct advantage.
Experience with computer scripting or Python programming would be an advantage.
