Are you as passionate as we are about structural biology computations? At SBGrid, thinking about structure determination workflows, software, data, and computing infrastructures is fundamental to our everyday work. We strive to bring you cutting edge scientific technologies to support rapidly evolving biological sciences.
If you share our passion for structural biology computing, join our cause and become an SBGrid Ambassador. As an SBGrid Ambassador you will help us fine-tune our efforts to respond to the needs of your local community. Represent your fellow laboratory, departmental, or institutional scientists in this global forum to help steer the development of SBGrid.
SBGrid Ambassadors will:
- Help us prioritize updates and additions to the SBGrid software collection.
- Act as liaisons between SBGrid and your institutional computing support teams to share strategies and optimize local computing resources.
- Identify computing challenges and unmet needs of the community to help us develop centralized SBGrid resources or facilitate access to federated resources, such as XSEDE or the Open Science Grid.
- Provide feedback on our education initiatives to improve our webinar series and on-site workshops.
- Advocate for data deposition at your institution and help us identify how we can improve our processes and extend our tools.
SBGrid Ambassadors will have the opportunity to participate in community forums, including regular conference calls with SBGrid staff and an annual meeting to learn about and discuss current priorities and initiatives. One immediate aim of our program will be to facilitate organization of experimental datasets with a special emphasis on electron microscopy to address urgent needs for sustainable and compliant methods of data preservation in this rapidly expanding field.
Our SBGrid Ambassador Program is now open for applications. Membership in the Ambassador program will likely appeal to principal investigators, senior scientists, and technically-oriented trainees. To obtain more information or to apply, please email Michelle Ottaviano before February 28th.
