Job description:

The Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research
( is a leading institute in crop plant
research. This results in several international published databases and
developed software tools. This data and software build an important
bioinformatics resource for the scientific community.

The positive impact for the IPK bioinformatics research can increase by
supporting WebService repositories like BioMoby or BioCase. The final
goal is embedding the institute into international bioinformatics
resource networks. Examples for such networks are the "Virtual Plant
Information Network" (VPIN), the PlaNet-Network or the international
initiative "Global Biodiversity Information Facility" (GBIF).

Thus, this scholarship focuses on the concrete implementation of such a
service and should support the service work of the IPK bioinformatics
groups. This service must be implemented using standardized computer
science and bioinformatics methods, like XML, Web Services, ontologies,
semantic Web and database integration.

Specific Requirements of the candidate:

The project's goals require a Bioinformatics Postdoc with special
experience in

- database concepts and technologies,
- Web-service techniques
- biological databases,
- XML processing,
- JAVA and Perl programming languages
- UNIX operating systems

Contract: A contract of 1 year will be offered to the successful candidate.
