dictyBase curator position

Dear Colleagues,

We have an open position for a Biocurator at dictyBase, the model  
organism database for Dictyostelium discoideum.  The database  
consists of a small group of bioinformatic engineers and scientific  
curators who work closely together in a stimulating environment to  
develop a leading bioinformatics resource to annotate the genome of  
Dictyostelium.  We are located at Northwestern University in downtown  
Chicago, IL, USA.

dictyBase Biocurators use state of the art bioinformatics tools,  
extensive literature searches, and direct involvement with the  
scientific community to assign gene function, catalog phenotypes, and  
manage strain inventories from labs all over the world.  Curators  
also work with software engineers to create new curation tools and  
collaborate in user interface design. dictyBase is a member of the  
Gene Ontology Consortium (GOC) and contributor to the Generic Model  
Organism Database Project (GMOD). Thus, we work in close  
collaboration with other databases to develop tools to annotate and  
display functional gene annotations.

Curation of dictyBase requires research experience with a model  
organism, preferably using Dictyostelium and strong computer skills.   
The successful candidate holds a Ph. D. in molecular biology/genetics/ 
genomics.  Please send a letter of interest and a CV along with the  
names of three references to r-chisholm at

The dictyBase Team
