Employment Opportunities at Proteome, Inc.
Full- or Part-Time Scientific Curators

Several part-time and full-time positions are available for Scientific
Curators to develop an Arabidopsis thaliana Proteome Database, AtPD. The
positions involve extraction of protein information from the scientific
literature and other databases, data entry into the AtPD on the World-Wide
Web, interactions with editors and other curators, and general support of
the database.

The Arabidopsis Proteome Database is intended to support research in
agricultural biotechnology, and is patterned after the popular Yeast Proteome
Database (YPD). Yeast genome/proteome information is used not only in basic
yeast research and antifungal research, but by genome researchers seeking to
annotate genes for other organisms and by researchers from all fields who find
genes with homologs in yeast. YPD serves the academic, biotechnology, and
pharmaceutical communities. YPD can be accessed on the WWW at
http://www.proteome.com. The AtPD will maintain the quality, depth and utility
of YPD, while addressing the complexity of a multicellular higher eukaryote.

The position requires advanced training, preferably a Ph.D. degree with plant
research experience, and good literature skills. The hours and the workplace
are flexible. Most work can be carried out remotely from the curator's home
via the internet. (We can help to set up the link if necessary). The candidate
may expect part-time positions to lead to future full-time employment, and
either position to lead to job advancement within Proteome, Inc.
