We are seeking to recruit a highly motivated Bioinformatician with a keen interest in structural biology of proteins to work at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI).
The position will bridge between the PDBe team, run by Sameer Velankar, and the InterPro team, run by Rob Finn, both based at EMBL-EBI. Time will be spent equally working in both teams during the period of work. The successful candidate will also be responsible for working with our partner resource Genome3D to improving the consistence and coherence of structural classifications and to ensure that these data are propagated into the InterPro and PDBe resources. Furthermore, the position will help integrate the structure predictions contained within Genome3D to the respective EBI databases. By nature of this collaborative project, the post-holder will be interacting with two large teams (approximately 25 people in total), as well as liaising with and progress reporting to the Genome3D resource counterparts based as UCL, London.
The successful candidate will be responsible for continuing the established PDBe workflow for cross-mapping different structural classifications, in collaboration with Genome3D /CATH. The post holder will also develop new data exchange protocols and implement update mechanisms for incorporating Genome3D data within PDBe and InterPro. They will then help drive the elaboration of PDBe/InterPro web pages to display these new data types. In conjunction with the EBI training team, the post holder will help develop electronic training material, detailing the new features produced through this work.
