The Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR) is seeking two full-time
database curators to start in the fall of 2000. They will participate in
the collection and display of data for research use, the development and
improvement of data model for TAIR database, and the development of
software tools for literature curation, data integration, visualization,
and analysis.  Data types to curate and develop into the database
structure include experimental data from the Arabidopsis literature,
genome annotation, functional genomics, microarrays, phenotype and mutant
lines, and biochemical pathways.

Successful candidates will have a Ph.D degree or equivalent in
biology, a demonstrated ability for independent, critical thinking and
excellent communication and teamwork skills.  Prior laboratory
experience with Arabidopsis is preferred.  Candidates with some
background in biochemistry are especially encouraged to apply. Also,
candidates with a working knowledge of PERL, SQL, and/or basic shell
scripting languages is desired but an extensive background in
computing is not required.  Familiarity with basic UNIX commands,
spreadsheets, and commonly used biological research tools such as
BLAST and MEDLINE searching would be assets.
