The Arthur Riggs Diabetes & Metabolism Research Institute at City of Hope

The Beckman Research Institute at City of Hope has an opportunity for a Research Associate II, under the direction of Dr. Kaddis. The candidate in this position will work directly with diabetes scientists around the world, to advance and promote the Human Islet Research Network (HIRN). Using related databases and content curation strategies, this individual will gather and generate required information needed to register, annotate, and publicize scientific resources in project registry systems. The applicant will be part of a multi-disciplinary team responsible for developing, managing, checking, and sharing the metadata needed to describe a scientific resource, such as biomedical datasets, biological reagents, documents (e.g. protocols), and/or technologies (e.g. assays).  The candidate will develop content using literature curation methodologies, biological ontologies, controlled vocabularies, and databases, but often requires direct interaction with and feedback from submitting laboratories, i.e. scientists. Metadata completeness and correctness is of primary importance; the applicant will organize and oversee existing registry data, as well as perform reviews of new or modified metadata submissions.  Please send your CV, cover letter, and contact information with 3 references to  Dr. John Kaddis.
