Job tasks
As part of the ongoing cooperation between the neXtProt ( and GlyConnect ( platforms, we plan to fill remaining gaps in cross-referencing the two resources and consolidate data integration processes, including data related to the evidence of modified amino acids.

To that end, we need to:
  • extend the repertoire of SPARQL queries to dig deeper into the investigation of protein glycosylation alone or in combination with other posttranslational modifications;
  • develop dedicated viewers to highlight the results of these queries;
  • improve robustness, efficiency and flexibility of data integration pipelines
  • integrate mass spectrometry data and annotation from several proteomics and glycoproteomics sources to support site-specific data curation. This may entail, reanalysing datasets.

Profile requirements
a) PhD in computer science, engineering or bioinformatics
b1) Experience with semantic web technologies including RDF and SPARQL
or b2) Experience in data integration technologies (SQL databases, data pipeline tools)
c) Proficiency in javascript and good knowledge of web components
d) Experience in processing mass spectrometry data, a plus.
