Drosophila Phenotype Curator (Cambridge UK)
We seek a biocurator to join the FlyBase group at the University of Cambridge, UK. If you are looking for a fulfilling, fly-related career away from the lab, and enjoy the challenge of organizing complex data clearly and concisely, then this is the job for you!
FlyBase curators extract biological information from scientific articles about the model organism Drosophila melanogaster, recording and organizing these data in template forms and graphical interfaces. Phenotype curators focus on data that illuminate the function of genes based on their mutant phenotypes and genetic interactions. All curated data are subsequently integrated into our central database and made freely available via the FlyBase<https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.flybase.org&data=02%7C01%7C%7C4bc8e24778d046ea2ad608d732126e70%7C4eed7807ebad415aa7a99170947f4eae%7C0%7C1%7C637032927049675892&sdata=ivvENtcR177SDmgwapgKBekEDysnJk4LAudhWh1WeAk%3D&reserved=0> website.
Additional responsibilities of phenotype curators include: developing strategies/tools to improve curation; enhancing data display/querying on the website; and interacting with the research community through HelpMail and presentations/help desks at research conferences. Curators also contribute to FlyBase publications and have the opportunity to develop computational skills (e.g. Unix, scripting, SQL).
