Here you go. I'd say that a Junior DBA ought to have the knowledge required to become certified MCTS on SQL Server, probably Exam 70-432 for a general DBA. Assuming that you mean MS SQL Server, and not some other SQL Server.

take a look at the articles and blogs on These are the real world things a DBA needs to be concerned with. It probably wouldn't hurt to have a thorough understanding of different RAID levels

The best answer a DBA can often give when asked a question is, "it depends."
