Openings at Syngenta

There are two openings at Syngenta, recently named one of the top biotechnology employers by Science, in Research Triangle Park, NC.

Genomic Database Specialist (#1435): We are currently using the Chado schema, and this individual will be responsible for maintaining and optimizing database systems for genome annotation and related information. Experience overseeing database systems is required and experience with Oracle and PostgreSQL is desirable. The ideal candidate will have a solid understanding of genomics and a background in a life sciences setting. Strong competency with Unix and Perl is required.

Genome Annotation Specialist (#1434): This individual will be responsible for implementing automated annotation pipelines for genome, transcript, and proteins sequences. Advanced knowledge of sequence analysis tools is required. Experience with modern high throughput sequencing analytics is desirable. A strong competency with Unix and scripting in a language such as Perl is required.

Both positions will work with Chado and GBrowse, and will help evaluate the adoption of additional GMOD tools. See the links for more details.
