Biodiversity Informatician (Database Analyst)

The Arizona State University (ASU) School of Life Sciences and Biodiversity
Knowledge Integration Center (BioKIC) is seeking a Biodiversity
Informatician for the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON)
Biorepository. NEON (https://www.neonscience.org/) is a continental-scale
ecological observation facility, sponsored by the National Science
Foundation and operated by Battelle. The project is expected to run for 30
years. For each project year, the NEON Biorepository at ASU will receive,
process, store, and make available an average of 100,000 biodiversity
occurrences sampled at more than 80 sites across the United States. The
diverse samples include DNA extractions, frozen soil samples,bulk and
pinned insect collections, herbarium vouchers, and partial or entire
vertebrate specimens, among others. A high rate of sample use for
NEON-related research projects is expected. The NEON Biorepository will
facilitate this by creating a data portal - sustained by the open source
Symbiota software platform - to support occurrence discovery, tracking of
sample transactions, integration of collections data and usage statistics
(publications, etc.), and by maintaining high-quality biodiversity data in
compliance with international standards. The biodiversity informatician
will play a critical role in providing and refining these services to
benefit the greater NEON research community.

Envisioned start date: November 1st, 2018.
