We are looking for an experienced and motivated scientific curator to work with various production databases and grant-funded projects, including ArrayExpress and Expression Atlas, within the ArrayExpress/Expression Atlas content team which forms part of the wider Functional Genomics group at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) located on the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK. The post holder will participate in: - Bio-curation and management of metadata for experiment submissions handled by the ArrayExpress/Expression Atlas content team; - Selection, annotation with Experimental Factor Ontology (EFO) terms, and curation of expression data for Expression Atlas; - Documentation and testing of analysis and reporting pipelines used by the team; - The development and extension of standard formats for functional genomics data (e.g. microarray gene expression data, high-throughput sequencing data) within the Functional Genomics Team infrastructure; - Interaction with the Functional Genomics development team at EMBL-EBI to jointly specify and design software relevant to the team’s work; - Design and delivery of training materials for Functional Genomics resources (e.g. at hands-on training courses), with occasional collection of participant feedback to guide user-focused development of Expression Atlas and other Functional Genomics resources at EMBL-EBI. The post holder will report to the Atlas Team Leader, and occasional travel may be required. EMBL-EBI is part of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and is located on the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK. We are a world-leading bioinformatics centre providing biological data to the scientific community with expertise in data storage, analysis and representation. We provide a dynamic, international working environment and has close ties with both the University of Cambridge and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. EMBL-EBI staff enjoy many benefits including excellent sports facilities, a free shuttle bus to Cambridge and other nearby centres, an active sports and social club and an attractive working environment set in 55 acres of parkland.
