We are seeking to recruit a Scientific Programmer to work on the EMDataBank project. You will join the Cellular Structure & 3D Bioimaging team at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) located at the Wellcome Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK.
EMBL-EBI is a world-leader in archival and dissemination of 3D biomacromolecular and cellular structure data. We accept and curate depositions of structural data for three global archives, PDB, EMDB and EMPIAR. We also maintain a number of databases that support advanced search, analysis and visualisation services for structural biologists and the wider scientific community.
The EMDB/EMPIAR team at EMBL-EBI plays a key role in the archival and dissemination of 3DEM data. In addition, we are part of the NIH-funded EMDataBank project with partners in the USA that aims to improve the validation methods, standards and practices in the field. For this project we are now looking to recruit a scientific programmer.
The post holder will work on several aspects of 3DEM validation project including:
a) Further development of the 3DEM validation software pipeline that is used to generate validation reports during EMDB/PDB deposition.
b) Further development of the stand-alone validation servers for the 3DEM community.
c) Analysis of submissions for the EMDataBank Map and Model Challenges.
