Hi all,

We're hiring. It's gone from bust to boom in the space of a few  
months, and now we're scrambling to get 3 new people on board. I'm  
really sorry about the multiple postings, but we're trying to get the  
word out.

from all of us at Berkeley... Suzi Lewis, Chris Mungall, Seth Carbon,  
John Day-Richter, Mark Gibson, Karen Eilbeck, & Nicole Washington

Software Developer positions in Berkeley: 

The Berkeley Bioinformatics and Ontologies Project (BBOP, http://, located at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory  
(LBNL), is seeking three software developers to craft tools for the  
collection, annotation, and integration of biomedical data. The BBOP  
is a founding member of the Gene Ontology Consortium, and a part of  
the National Center for Biomedical Ontology. We have a long history  
developing open source software and databases for Drosophila and  
other model organisms, and are an original member of the Generic  
Model Organism Database (GMOD) project. We are an extremely  
collaborative team that is built upon the creative sharing of ideas  
among bright individuals.

1. modENCODE
The applicant will work on an important new project, modENCODE, whose  
aim is to discover and explore the genomes of C. elegans and D.  
melanogaster , using new scientific strategies and new technologies  
for discovery. It is a collaborative project with Cold Spring Harbor  
Laboratory, Cambridge University, University of California Santa  
Cruz. The applicant will be responsible for collecting and collating  
experimental data from many different sources. [see http:// for more...]

The applicant will work on an important new collaboration between the  
National Center for Biomedical Ontologies (NCBO) and the Biomedical  
Informatics Research Network (BIRN). The BIRN, based at the  
University of California San Diego, is an initiative within the  
National Institutes of Health that fosters large-scale collaborations  
in biomedical science by utilizing the capabilities of the emerging  
cyberinfrastructure. BIRN is targeting advances in understanding the  
genetics of human disease by identifying correlations between genetic  
insults and neuropathological processes. The database mediation  
software will support ontological query and retrieval of image  
information based on phenotypic descriptions. Our role is to assist  
in building the requisite data and knowledge stores, by building  
ontology-directed graphs for query navigation. [see http:// for more ...]

The applicant will work on an important software component of the  
GMOD project: Apollo. Apollo allows researchers to explore genomic  
annotations at many levels of detail, and to perform expert curation  
of the genome, all within a graphical environment. Our role is to  
support the global users of Apollo and to extend its capabilities in  
numerous ways. The Apollo project is a joint collaboration between  
LBNL and the Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR), located at  
Stanford. [ see for
