The Natural History Museum London has a really exciting opportunity for a Science Data Architect linked to our mass digitisation programme. Full details are on Linked-In and applications (via Cover letter and CV) should be made through the NHM Recruitment website. I'm happy to answer any queries about the post. Summary details below:
Scratchpads 2.0: a virtual research environment for biodiversity science [In Chinese]
Biodiversity Science. 22(3): 264–276. doi: 10.3724/SP.J.1003.2014.14012.
Thanks to Luke Holman I have just uploaded the PEET DNA barcoding debate that I chaired in 2004 to YouTube. Luke is working on metabarcoding and needed the video as part of his undergraduate dissertation at the University of St Andrews. Unfortunately the University of Illinois video stream is broken so with the help of staff at the UofI he tracked down the recording and they have made it available for download. Conference videos are common now but in 2004 this was quite innovative. To read more about the debate take a look at the series of papers written in Systematic Biology which document the meeting.

Scratchpads: the Virtual Research Environment for biodiversity data
Next generation sequencing requires next generation publishing: the Biodiversity Data Journal published the first eukaryotic new species with a fully sequenced transcriptome, DNA barcode and microcomputed tomography.
