At Sage Bionetworks, we believe that we can learn more by learning from each other. By improving the way scientists collaborate, we help to make science more effective. We partner with researchers, patients, and healthcare innovators to drive collaborative data-driven science to improve health. Making science more open, collaborative, and inclusive ultimately advances biomedicine.
Are you the type of person who enjoys engaging with scientists and researchers from many disciplines and have a passion for open data, reproducible science, and collaborative research? Do you have a working knowledge of data curation and metadata standards? We are seeking someone to fill a crucial need in our support of several large NIH funded neuroscience data repositories by acting as a liaison between data contributors and the Systems Biology Data Coordination Center (DCC).
As part of Systems Biology you will be an integral member of a team that includes scientists, computational biologists, software engineers, and data curators. You will work closely with external data contributing scientists to gain an understanding of data, data sources, and standards to support and expand on the usability of the data repositories.
What you’ll be doing:
- Act as a liaison between data contributors and the DCC to define data contributions.
- Schedule and track data releases and provide data release reports to funding agencies.
- Develop and manage a data contribution forecasting and tracking system to allow effective resource allocation across the supported consortia.
- Work with data contributors and the DCC to develop metadata standards for new assays and assessments.
- Assist data contributors in documenting studies and data generation methods to improve data usability.
- Train data contributors in the use of data validation and upload tools.
- Work with DCC communication staff to develop data upload and data use documentation.
We’d love to hear from you if you:
- Have a Master’s degree in a scientific field, or social sciences with experience working in a scientific research setting, or a Bachelor’s degree in same with a minimum of 2 years relevant experience.
- Have experience with scientific project management.
- Have exceptional attention to detail.
- Have effective and efficient communication skills for diverse audiences.
- Are able to work independently and in a team setting.
