Job Responsibilities

Data Curation:

  • Clearly understand curation protocol/ specifications from Supervisor
  • Copy source data from internal server and Coordinate with team lead/ bio-IT to convert documents into a readable format for curation.
  • Analyze content of source documents to capture relevant information and record this information in internal tool as per client specified protocol
    • Narratives: Analyzes and maps each reaction with transcript file provided by the client and captures relevant information in Desktop Tool. Data captured typically includes
      • The complete experimental procedure
      • Reaction yields of various compounds with structures/IUPAC names
      • Physical or analytical data.
    • Reaction Analysis: Analyzes experimental procedures and schemes from source documents as per client specified guidelines. Data captured typically includes
      • Reaction components: Products, reactants, agents, solvents and catalysts
      • Reaction conditions: Temparature, time, pH, pressure etc.
      • Analytical data: 1H-NMR, Mp, 13C NMR, etc.
    • Indexing: Analyzes source documents and records keyword strings, chemical substance indexing, key ideas and text description and process data in ASCII file format that are related to key finding/discoveries of papers in area of Biological Sciences
  • Coordinate with team lead/ Bio-IT to resolve issues with internal tools
  • Accurately curate rejected tasks/ make corrections identified during review or QC process within specified timelines
  • Submit data for review on online tool
  • Clarify any queries with team lead/ supervisor. Typical queries include
    • Narratives: Mismatch of structures, incorrect reagent structures, situations deviating from general protocol
    • Reactions: Mechanism of reactions and roles of chemicals, situations deviating from general protocol
    • Indexing: Mismatch of document titles, incomplete source documents, situations deviating from protocol

Training and Continuous Knowledge Improvement:

Enhance scientific subject matter expertise (On organic chemistry and synthesis), knowledge of internal tools and productivity, through regular domain trainings/ tool trainings/ one on one trainings with supervisor
