The RCSB Protein Data Bank (http://www.pdb.org) is a publicly accessible 
information portal for researchers and students interested in structural 
biology. At its center is the PDB archive -- the sole international 
repository for the 3-dimensional structure data of biological 
macromolecules. These structures hold significant promise for the 
pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries in the search for new drugs 
and in efforts to understand the mysteries of human disease

The primary mission of the RCSB PDB is to provide accurate, 
well-annotated data in the most timely and efficient way possible to 
facilitate new discoveries and scientific advances. The RCSB processes, 
stores, and disseminates these important data, and develops the software 
tools needed to assist users in depositing and accessing structural 

The RCSB Protein Data Bank at Rutgers University in Piscataway, NJ has 
an opening for a Biochemical Information & Annotation Specialist to 
curate and standardize macromolecular structures for distribution in the 
PDB archive. The annotation specialist communicates daily with members 
of the deposition community, and annotates, releases, and updates 
entries in the PDB archive. BLAST, PubMed, and other tools are used for 
the annotation process performed on a linux box

We have multiple positions available. A background in cryo-electron 
microscopy or small molecule crystallography or macromolecular 
crystallography is a strong advantage. Biological chemistry (PhD, MS, BS 
or BA) is required. Experience with linux computer systems, biological 
databases is preferred. The successful candidate should be 
self-motivated, pay close attention to detail, possess strong written 
and oral communication skills, and meet deadlines

This position offers the opportunity to participate in an exciting 
project with significant impact on the scientific community

Please send resume (pdf preferred) to Dr. Helen M. Berman at 
pdbjobs from rcsb.rutgers.edu
