Comparative Genomics, Ithaca, NY

Two permanent USDA-ARS positions are available for plant genome database
curators at the USDA-ARS Center for Bioinformatics and Comparative Genomics
(CBCG) on the campus of Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. Successful
candidates will have primary responsibility for either SolGenes (a database

databases contain a wide variety of scientific information and emphasize
comparisons between species. Curators will be responsible for database
content, design and evolution and are expected to coordinate closely with
the scientific advisors for the database projects, Dr. Steven Tanksley
(SolGenes) and Dr. Susan McCouch (RiceGenes) and their research programs.
Interactions and opportunities for collaborations with researchers within
the CBCG and other ARS units, the Institute for Computational Genomics at
the Cornell Theory Center and with other researchers involved with the
Cornell Genomics Initiative are strongly encouraged. Candidates must be US
citizens and have research experience in biology (Ph.D. preferred).
Familiarity with databases and scripting languages helpful. Salary
commensurate with experience ($39,960-$74,035). For information on the CBCG
or positions contact: Dr. Samuel W. Cartinhour, sc167 at cornell.edu. For
