[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 Velankar (sameer@ebi.ac.uk).

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.

About 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).
