      Hi all,

      The Protein Data Bank in Europe (PDBe; pdbe.org) is looking to recruit an
      expert structural biologist to join the PDBe curation team at the EBI near
      Cambridge, UK. Applicants should be computer-literate and possess a recent PhD
      in some area of structural biology or structural chemistry as well as a broad
      knowledge in molecular biology or biochemistry. An in-depth knowledge of
      protein structure (including structure determination, analysis and validation)
      is essential. A few years of post-doctoral research experience in structural
      biology, as well as hands-on experience in the determination of protein
      structure is highly desirable.

      The ideal candidate will be familiar with Linux/Unix operating systems and
      molecular graphics software. Basic programming skills, e.g. with Perl, Python
      or Java, would be an advantage. Given the extensive interactions with
      colleagues in the PDBe team as well as with international collaborators,
      depositors and users, excellent written and oral communication skills, fluency
      in English, ability to work in a team and attention to detail are required.

      More details and a link to the electronic application procedure can be found
      here:

      Feel free to pass this on to suitable candidates!

      --Gerard

      PS: Some hints for prospective applicants: it doesn't hurt to add a nice cover
      letter in which you explain why you would love to be a PDB annotator and why
      PDBe strikes you as a brilliant place to work. Also, if you should get invited
      for an interview and we ask you what the main colour of our website is, please
      don't answer "blue"...
