The BDSC is recruiting a scientist who will eventually become part of the BDSC management team. The new scientist would initially focus on management of business operations (personnel, user accounts, billing, financial recordkeeping and reporting), but will eventually participate in all aspects of BDSC operations and assume a primary leadership role in the organization. Additional responsibilities will eventually include management of collection contents (strain accessions, deaccessions, quality control), information management (biocuration, database construction and use, website development), and scientific communication (user support, grant proposals and reporting, conference presentations, position papers, manuscripts). This is a very important hire for us and an excellent opportunity for someone interested in a challenging alternative scientific career path devoted to supporting research.
