The Duke University Center of Computational Immunology ( seeks applicants to work on two biocuration 
projects, one focused on immunology and one focused on infectious 
diseases.  The approach taken under both projects is the curation of 
knowledge from the primary literature and public databases followed by the 
formal representation of that knowledge for automated reasoning.  In its 
early stages, the infectious disease project will focus on host-pathogen 
interaction in the context of Staphylococcus aureus infection.  The next 
stage will be coverage of host-pathogen interaction in the context of 
Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection.
Successful candidates will have a recent PhD in Immunology, Microbiology, 
or Biology and experience with a variety of molecular and cell biology 
experimental techniques. Experience with biocuration, ontology 
development, text mining and information retrieval, knowledge 
representation, or automated reasoning is an added strength, but we are 
prepared to provide training in those areas.
Please submit an application package consisting of a letter of interest 
containing contact information and citizenship status, a curriculum vitae 
and a one-page statement of research interests.  Please arrange to have 
three letters of reference sent.  The application package and reference 
letters should be submitted electronically, as PDF files, to Lindsay 
Cowell lgcowell at  The positions will remain open until filled
