Interdisciplinary curator position with the GrainGenes database project.

This is a permanent, GS-11/12 ($42,673-66,488/yr), Category 4 position at 
the ARS, Western Regional Research Center, Albany, CA.  The position is a 
member of a project on the bioinformatics and genomic research of several 
of the small grains: wheat, barley, rye, triticale, and oats.  
Duties include providing genetic/molecular biological expertise to the 
database project, evaluating data, utility and database structure,
collaborating in data formatting, and literature searches.  The curator 
oversees data structuring and compilation from individual laboratories,

related to small grains genomics. Candidates must possess a PhD in genetics, 
molecular biology, or related biological disciplines appropriate to the 
position and providing relevant prior experience to participate in a 
computer and laboratory project on grains genomics.  Experience may not 
necessarily need to be with small grains, but the candidate must provide 
the background necessary for the position.  Selective Placement Factors

biology, or plant breeding research, and a basic knowledge of computer use 
in science. Candidates must have U.S. citizenship.  The position
