[ccp4bb] Job vacancy: structural analyst/programmer
The Protein Data Bank in Europe (PDBe) is seeking to recruit a
structural analyst/programmer to join the team at the European
Bioinformatics Institute located on the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus
near Cambridge in the UK.
For further information and to apply, please see the full EMBL-EBI job
listing at http://bit.ly/1jvNjIO
To discuss this post informally, please contact PDBe's Dr Sameer
About the position:
Established in 1994, CATH and SCOP are the world’s most comprehensive
resources classifying protein-domain structures into evolutionary
superfamilies. They are currently being combined in a collaborative
project - Genome3D - that aims to provide predicted 3D structures for
sequences assigned to SCOP and CATH superfamilies. Combining SCOP and
CATH based predictions allows us to identify more accurately regions
that agree between the two methods. We aim to provide these
Genome3D-predicted structures via the PDBe resource. To improve the
assessment of the reliability of the predictions it is necessary to
develop a mapping between SCOP and CATH and to remove any conflicts.
We are now seeking to recruit a structural analyst/programmer to assist
with this task. The structural analyst/programmer will also build an
automatic pipeline to generate putative domain assignments (from CATH)
for new PDB structures, prior to classification in SCOP or CATH. The
structural analyst/programmer will be based at PDBe, and will be jointly
supervised by Prof. Christine Orengo (UCL, London) and Dr Alexey Muzin
(MRC-LMB, Cambridge), together with Prof. Gerard Kleywegt and Dr Sameer
Velankar at PDBe.
The Protein Data Bank in Europe (PDBe; pdbe.org) is part of the
Worldwide Protein Data Bank organisation (wwPDB; wwpdb.org), which
maintains the global archive of 3D structural data on biomacromolecules.
The PDBe team also maintains a number of databases that support
deposition and advanced search services for structural biologists and
the wider scientific community. The team consists of an international
and inter-disciplinary mix of professionals (scientists and IT specialists).
