BACKGROUND:
It's 2 am. You type the name of your favorite gene into GenBank and are rewarded with information---sequence, references, related genes. You are intrigued by the countless possibilities for new experiments, but part of you longs for a different career away from the bench and 2 am dates with your computer.

* A Ph.D. in molecular biology or a related field
* Extensive laboratory experience in molecular biology
* Excellent verbal and written communication skills
* An aptitude for DNA sequence analysis (experience with DNA sequence analysis software is a plus)

* A strong desire to support public scientific databases such as GenBank
* A detail-oriented outlook coupled with a love for puzzle and problem solving

COMPENSATION:
