		Joint Center for Structural Genomics

The Scripps Research Institute/Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation,
Stanford University/Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory, U.C. San Diego/San 
Diego Supercomputer Center along with collaborators from several other Institutes 
have formed the Joint Center for Structural Genomics (JCSG). The main goal of the 
Center is to advance automated high-throughput methods for all stages of macromolecular
structure determination including target selection, protein expression, purification, 
crystallization, crystal manipulation, structure determination and data management.  
Teams of experts are being assembled for each phase: Bioinformatics (UCSD/SDSC), 
Crystallomics (TSRI/GNF) and Structure Determination (SSRL). Target selection will 
focus on novel cell signaling proteins from c. elgans, human, mouse and drosophila. 
The center is funded by the NIH-NIGMS Protein Structure Initiative 
(http://www.nih.gov.nigms/funding/psi.html).   

The JCSG is currently seeking experienced, highly skilled protein biochemists, X-ray 
crystallographers, molecular biologists, engineers, scientific software developers, 
scientific/technical programmers and technical support personnel. 

Please visit our Web Site http://www.jcsg.org for further information and current 
job opportunities or contact one of the Core Leaders or Dr Ian Wilson, The Scripps 
Research Institute, wilson at scripps.edu.     

	
Bioinformatics Positions: Research and Database Programmers, Project Scientist 
and Computer Resource Specialist. 
Responsibilities: Target selection, information management, structure validation 
and post-structural analysis. Database Programmers will be specialists in ORDBMS. 
Programmers need experience in computational science and numerical analysis. Project  
Scientists need a background in molecular biology/biochemistry and proficiency in 
computational methods of sequence, structure, pathway and other analytical methods.
