Berkeley GMOD (et al.) needs people

We're hiring. It's gone from bust to boom in the space of a few months, and now we're scrambling to get 3 new people on board.

from all of us at Berkeley... Suzi Lewis, Chris Mungall, Seth Carbon, John Day-Richter, Mark Gibson, Karen Eilbeck, & Nicole Washington

Software Developer positions in Berkeley: http://berkeleybop.org/content/jobs/

The Berkeley Bioinformatics and Ontologies Project (BBOP, http://berkeleybop.org\), located at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
(LBNL), is seeking three software developers to craft tools for the collection, annotation, and integration of biomedical data. The BBOP
is a founding member of the Gene Ontology Consortium, and a part of the National Center for Biomedical Ontology. We have a long history
developing open source software and databases for Drosophila and other model organisms, and are an original member of the Generic Model Organism Database (GMOD) project. We are an extremely
collaborative team that is built upon the creative sharing of ideas among bright individuals.

1. modENCODE
The applicant will work on an important new project, modENCODE, whose aim is to discover and explore the genomes of C. elegans and D.
melanogaster , using new scientific strategies and new technologies for discovery. It is a collaborative project with Cold Spring Harbor
Laboratory, Cambridge University, University of California Santa Cruz. The applicant will be responsible for collecting and collating
experimental data from many different sources. [see http://berkeleybop.org/content/jobs/modENCODE.shtml for more...]

2. NCBO/BIRN
The applicant will work on an important new collaboration between the National Center for Biomedical Ontologies (NCBO) and the Biomedical
Informatics Research Network (BIRN). The BIRN, based at the University of California San Diego, is an initiative within the National Institutes of Health that fosters large-scale collaborations
in biomedical science by utilizing the capabilities of the emerging cyberinfrastructure. BIRN is targeting advances in understanding the
genetics of human disease by identifying correlations between genetic insults and neuropathological processes. The database mediation software will support ontological query and retrieval of image information based on phenotypic descriptions. Our role is to assist
in building the requisite data and knowledge stores, by building ontology-directed graphs for query navigation. [see http://berkeleybop.org/content/jobs/BIRN.shtml for more ...]

3. APOLLO
The applicant will work on an important software component of the GMOD project: Apollo. Apollo allows researchers to explore genomic
annotations at many levels of detail, and to perform expert curation of the genome, all within a graphical environment. Our role is to support the global users of Apollo and to extend its capabilities in numerous ways. The Apollo project is a joint collaboration between LBNL and the Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR), located at Stanford. [ see http://berkeleybop.org/content/jobs/Apollo.shtml for more ...]

How to Apply
Applications and questions may be sent to Nicole Washington nlwashington@lbl.gov with the project code in the subject line. Please include a cover letter, resume, and contact information with
your application.
