Job opening: NEON Biorepository Biodiversity Informatician

The Arizona State University (ASU) School of Life Sciences is seeking a Biodiversity Informatician (Database Analyst) for the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) Biorepository (https://biorepo.neonscience.org/). NEON is expected to run for 30 years. For each project year, the NEON Biorepository at ASU will receive, process, store, and make available for research an average of 100,000 samples from more than 80 sites across the United States. We facilitate this with a data portal to support discovery and tracking of sample occurrences and sample data linkages, sample transactions, and research use. The biodiversity informatician will play a critical role in providing and refining these services to benefit the greater NEON research community.

The position is integrated with the Biodiversity Knowledge Integration Center (BioKIC), which provides inclusive and equitable access to knowledge services related to biodiversity collections and data. We promote diversity, inclusion and equity through what we value, what we do, and who we are. BioKIC is committed to providing a healthy work environment and work-life balance.
