Default plant metabolic pathway database curator position available



A scientific database curator position is available immediately in Dr. Sue Rhee's group at the Carnegie Institution, Department of Plant Biology (Stanford, CA). This position is to develop a comprehensive catalog of plant metabolic pathways and enzymes. The project expands the coverage of metabolic pathways from AraCyc ([Only registered users see links. ]) to all known pathways in all plant species. This database will be used as a reference database to generate other organism-specific plant pathway databases such as for maize, wheat, and poplar. The curator will be responsible for: i)researching new plant metabolic pathways and enzymes in the scientific literature, and to evaluate, extract, organize, and enter that information to the database; ii) contributing to the development of standard procedure and operation rules on curation methods and to the general development of the database, such as data integration, web page enhancement, and data exchange with other databases; and iii) communicating with the research community to improve the quality of the data, to train them in using the database and related tools, and to support user requests. The successful candidates will work with highly trained metabolism curators (post-Ph.D. level biologists with an expertise in plant metabolism), software developers and a number of pioneering plant biochemists around the world.

Qualified candidates should have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in biochemistry or related field. The successful candidate should also have a demonstrated ability for independent and critical thinking, excellent
communication and teamwork skills. Experience with Unix operating system, Perl, and web page editing is an extra asset.

Application Instructions: Please email a brief letter describing your research experience, plus your CV
and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Sue Rhee at
