Drosophila Neuroanatomy Biocurator (Cambridge, UK)

We are seeking to recruit a Drosophila Neuroanatomy Biocurator to join our team at the University of Cambridge. The post is suitable for those with an undergraduate degree (Research Assistant level) or post-PhD (Research Associate level).

The post holder will contribute to two Drosophila databases: Virtual Fly Brain (VFB; http://virtualflybrain.org) and FlyBase (http://flybase.org/). If you are looking for a fulfilling, fly-related career away from the bench, and enjoy the challenge of organising complex data and presenting it clearly and concisely, then this is the job for you!

Virtual Fly Brain is a resource that helps Drosophila neuroscientists map and visualize neuronal circuits, and find the experimental reagents to manipulate the circuits to reveal their role in perception, learning, memory and complex behaviours. The successful applicant will aid this process in three ways: 1) by annotating the expression of Gal4 drivers within the adult brain, using data from large scale datasets and the primary research literature; 2) assisting in the integration of connectomics data and single-cell RNA sequencing datasets; and 3) leading the effort to assess the functionality of improvements to the website, by recruiting members of the local neuroscience community and working with them and other VFB members to perform usability testing of the website.
