Job Summary 13;
The Childrens Hospital Of Philadelphia (CHOP) Research Institute is recruiting a new team to build a data and informatics program called Arcus that will link clinical and biological data and provide world:class computational tools to solve the most challenging problems in child health. Recognizing the central role of data to the future of pediatric research, CHOP leadership and the Board of Directors committed to a funding plan, and Arcus was launched in July 2017. The Arcus team integrates with major scientific initiatives in the Research Institute Strategic Plan: Lifespan, Rare Diseases, Novel Devices and Therapeutics, and Precision Health. We seek mission:oriented professionals with interest and expertise in the areas of biomedical science, library science, data education, data science, cloud computing, data privacy, and security.
The Supervisor of Applied Data Science (ADS) at the Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute will build and lead the Arcus Applied Data Science team and contribute to all data science activities for the Arcus program. In concert with the Director of Applied Data Science and key stakeholders in the Research Institute, the Supervisor of Applied Data Science will be responsible for the identification and execution of data engineering projects that facilitate increased utility of data and analytic tools in Arcus that address well:defined, high:priority scientific needs within the CHOP research community. This may include, but is not limited to, efforts that provide feature extraction from unstructured data, information query and retrieval, data annotation and linking, data management, and standardized biomedical data science research pipelines. The Supervisor of ADS will promote the application of Arcus data science capabilities and foster collaboration between data scientists and biomedical researchers within the CHOP community through direct support to existing biomedical research projects and consultation on biomedical research funding proposals. In support of the Arcus Education Group, the Supervisor of ADS will contribute to endeavors that raise awareness and understanding of data science methods and the Arcus platform among biomedical researchers. The successful candidate will have experience recruiting and managing a data science team, a proven track record of executing data science projects with clearly defined scope and organizational impact, and demonstrated ability to work in a highly interdisciplinary, dynamic environment. This individual should have a right tool for the right job philosophy and must be able to work with biomedical researchers to identify data science requirements that demonstrably address specific biomedical research limitations. Most of all, we are looking for someone who shares our vision to exponentially improve child health and scientific knowledge through the integration and expansion of data science within biomedical research.
