    Opportunity: GenBank Biologist @ Computercraft Corporation--Bethesda, MD (US)
    Submitted by Computercraft Corporation; posted on Tuesday, May 22, 2012


    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.

    If you see yourself in this scenario, consider experiencing life on the other side of a Genbank query. Computercraft is seeking new additions to its team of creative and dedicated scientists who have supported GenBank since 1991. Molecular biologists just completing a post-doc are especially encouraged to apply.

    As a Genbank biologist you would work together with professionals at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD.


    Your responsibilities would include: creating complete and accurate Genbank records from the sequence data and annotation submitted by individual investigators and large-scale sequencing projects and helping to administer and maintain GenBank.


    • 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)
    • The ability to work as part of a team
    • A strong desire to support public scientific databases such as Genbank
    • A detail-oriented outlook coupled with a love for puzzle and problem solving
    All applicants must complete the GenBank questionnaire as part of the application process. For more Information about GenBank visit:
