FlyBase seeks three Ph.D.-level scientific curator/annotators 
to join our team in the Dept. of Molecular & Cellular Biology 
at Harvard University, Cambridge, under the direction of Bill 
Gelbart. These are full-time positions, available as either a 
permanent staff position or a postdoctoral appointment.

Curational responsibilities at the Harvard site include the 
scanning and abstracting of scientific literature on the 
molecular biology of Drosophila, annotation and analysis of 
Drosophila genome(s), coordination of the inclusion of high-
throughput molecular datasets into FlyBase, and design of 
improved interfaces for providing molecular data to users. 
Curators work as a part of a team, interacting with biologists 
at other FlyBase sites, and coordinating with software 
engineers to develop and improve software. Curators also 
interface with the scientific community, assisting users 
online and at research conference workshops.

FlyBase is constantly evolving, seeking both to improve and 
to expand its role within the Drosophila and wider scientific 
communities. The ideal applicant will be enthusiastic about 
participating in this process, bringing to the FlyBase group 
expertise and ideas concerning emerging directions in 
Drosophila biology, population and quantitative genetics, or 
genomic/proteomic analysis.

Required Education, Experience, Skills: Ph.D. in molecular 
biology or genetics. Experience with molecular genetics and 
Drosophila biology preferred.

TO APPLY:
Please contact William Gelbart (gelbart at morgan.harvard.edu), 
and include a CV, description of research experience and names 
of three references.  Please cc your communication to Lynn 
Crosby (crosby at morgan.harvard.edu).
