The Su Lab is looking for a postdoctoral researcher to join the "Gene Wiki" team, the goal of which is to use crowdsourcing to organize biomedical knowledge. While this project previously revolved around free-text, gene-specific reviews in Wikipedia, it now centers around integrating structured data in the context of Wikidata. This position will involve data modeling using biomedical ontologies, writing computer programs for data integration within Wikidata, using SPARQL to perform integrative queries, and/or building web applications using Wikidata as a back end knowledge source.

Qualified candidates will have a Ph.D. in bioinformatics or computational biology, or a Ph.D. in experimental biology plus intermediate programming experience. Prior research in the areas of infectious diseases, microbiology, or rare diseases is particularly useful (though not required). Qualified women and minorities are encouraged to apply.

Please apply by emailing Dr. Andrew Su. As a reminder, your CV should describe what you've done in the past, and your cover letter should describe why you did it, how it is relevant to this position, and what you want to accomplish in the future.

Can you update the post with links/email to apply?

I have purposely left my email out of the post to reduce spam applications (ie people who simply apply for every open position). My contact info is not hard to find... ;)

I thought that may be the case but wanted to make sure (in case there was an official job application link).
