Lawrence Berkeley Lab, Joint Genome Institute
Berkeley, CA, USA
Lawrence Berkeley Lab’s (LBL) Joint Genome Institute (JGI) has an opening for a Genome Annotation Scientist (Data Scientist) to join the team.
Take advantage of an exciting opportunity to employ your scientific and computational skills as part of the JGI Plant Science Program, the world’s largest producer of high-quality plant genome assemblies and annotations. In this role, you will work at the JGI within the Plant Comparative Analysis group to generate new as well as improved plant genome annotations and facilitate the acquisition, incorporation, and display of functional, genetic, and other genome-anchored data in the Phytozome Genomics Portal (https://phytozome-next.jgi.doe.gov). Your responsibilities include the curation and assessment of relevant plant transcriptomic datasets and assembled genomes, running and troubleshooting the annotation pipeline, analyzing the resulting gene predictions in coordination with internal and external scientists, evaluating genome-specific modifications and tuning of the pipeline components, and incorporating the data into the Phytozome portal.
