The Networking Research Resources Across America project will have a number of positions available beginning September 1, 2009 if funding is granted. This is a multi-site program to develop, enhance, or extend infrastructure for connecting people and resources to facilitate national discovery of scientific resources by scientists and students to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and scientific exchange. The project will develop a web portal that allows comprehensive querying of resources irrespective of source and type of resource. The types of resources will include the whole range of possible resources that scientists utilize in their work. These include, but are not limited to: materials, animals, publications, technologies, cores, instruments, tools, reagents, cell lines, and assays. The resources will be searchable from multiple perspectives such that users from various environments and scientific areas can easily locate useful information.
Employment from September 1, 2009 to August 31, 2011 is contingent on grant funding. Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) is an equal opportunity, affirmative action institution.
