Sr. Biocuration Scientist (Scientific Data Curator 3)
Job Code: 4183
Job Grade: J
Stanford University Department of Genetics has an excellent opportunity available for a motivated and experienced Senior Biocuration Scientist. This individual will work with projects funded to coordinate and integrate data from model organism research as part of projects funded by the National Institutes of Health. This individual will be an essential project member who will identify genetic data from scientific articles, and record these data regarding genes, alleles, and proteins in a systematic manner. Other data to be captured include phenotypes, gene product functions, and models of human disease. Curated data are entered into the database and made freely available to the public.
The successful candidate will have extensive biological knowledge, including familiarity with high-throughput experimental methodologies, large genomic datasets, and their computational analysis in order to successfully describe these data. Prior laboratory experience generating genomic datasets and/or bioinformatics analysis experience to identify RNA transcripts, transcription factor binding sites, protein modifications, and SNPs within genomic datasets is desired. Familiarity with the use of controlled vocabularies and ontologies to describe biological concepts is a plus. An advanced education in a biological field is required to facilitate the assessment of experimental details, results, and data. This individual will be also responsible for working with other curation and software engineering staff in the specification, design, and implementation of tools that integrate, search, and display these data.
Excellent verbal and written communication skills are essential in order to (1) interact effectively with members of the scientific community, (2) facilitate the acquisition and description of scientific data, (3) effectively provide documentation and specifications to coworkers during tool development, and (4) contribute to publications and tutorials.
The successful candidate must be able to learn and work independently, yet collaborate well with coworkers. Previous experience working in an academic environment is a plus. The work will take place in a dynamic environment where specifications often change rapidly in response to various demands, so the candidate must remain flexible and adaptable.
