trabajo en PDB Europa

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).
