Durham, North Carolina Duke University Libraries is seeking a repository developer to work on redeveloping the MorphoSource project into full-scale repository. This position is funded for three years through a grant from the National Science Foundation Advances in Biological Informatics (NSF ABI) program with the potential for renewal.

MorphoSource is a project-based data archive that allows researchers to store and organize, share, and distribute their own 3d data. Furthermore any registered user can immediately search for and download 3d morphological data sets that have been made accessible through the consent of data authors. The goal of MorphoSource is to provide rapid access to as many researchers as possible, large numbers of raw microCt data and surface meshes representing vouchered specimens. File formats include tiff, dicom, stanford ply, and stl.
