Job opportunity at VFB

We’re looking for a web developer to help us build VFB 2.0. Please share with anyone you think may be interested. Details:

Are you interested in the challenge of designing web tools to provide accurate answers to biologically important questions couched in the language of biology? Are you interested in the challenges of communicating and interacting with 3D image data? Do you have an eye for web design?

Virtual Fly Brain are looking for a front end web developer to help redesign our site.

Virtual Fly Brain is a data integration hub for Drosophila neurobiology. We already integrate thousands of descriptions of neuroanatomy along with 10s of thousands of annotations of expression and 3D images of neuroanatomy. We have a clear semantic schema that provides the functionality our users need, and that runs from curation, through our OWL-based data models. Our new site must communicate these semantics clearly and elegantly whilst integrating an interactive 3D browser for images of neuroanatomy.

Details of the position, which is a combined post working with both VFB and The European Bank for induced pluripotent stem cells, are available on the EBI site.
