The Drosophila Genomics Resource Center at Indiana University Bloomington (https://dgrc.bio.indiana.edu/Home) is seeking an Assistant Scientist (also serving as the Associate Director of Cell Resources and Development) to join its management team.
The DGRC is a dynamic and heavily used repository for Drosophila genomic (DNA vectors and clones) and cell lines that serves researchers worldwide. IUB provides an outstanding intellectual environment for DGRC activities, with more than a dozen research groups using Drosophila for studies in molecular and cell biology, development, neurobiology, physiology, evolution and ecology. The work of DGRC scientists is wide ranging and includes management of collection contents (accessions, quality control), information management (biocuration, database construction and use, website development), scientific communication (user support, grant proposals and reporting, conference presentations, position papers, manuscripts), and business operations (personnel, user accounts, billing, financial recordkeeping and reporting).
The new DGRC Assistant Scientist will participate in all aspects of DGRC operations and eventually assume a primary leadership role in the organization. Candidates should have extensive knowledge of Drosophila tissue culture, Drosophila genetics, excellent communication skills, proven grantsmanship, well-developed organizational abilities, interest in a long-term position, and a keen desire to support the Drosophila research community.
Ph.D. in biology or related field and relevant postdoctoral experience with a solid record of research accomplishments required. Experienced scientists are encouraged to apply.
