The Office of the BRAIN Director in the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke seeks to recruit a senior bioinformatics scientist with a well-established record of exceptional scientific and technical expertise in data science and data integration.
Are you an expert in bioinformatics and want to be part of a dynamic, collaborative, and high-performing team within the Office of the BRAIN Director (OBD)? We’re seeking to recruit a senior bioinformatics scientist with strong executive administrative management experience to guide critical discovery and coordination efforts in data science and data integration.
Overview: The NIH BRAIN Initiative is a collaboration among 10 NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) led by OBD in the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS). Currently, over 120 staff from across the 10 ICs participate in managing BRAIN-funded programs. The diversity of approaches and data types have expanded dramatically in the last two years especially. As a result, the incumbent for this position will be responsible for developing and organizing data science and informatics needs across the large cross-disciplinary trans-NIH teams at the critical interface of basic research and translational science relevant to the BRAIN Initiative, its related programs, and expanded network of Federal and non-Federal partners. The appointee will oversee the operation of BRAIN Team Data, which is a cross-IC team charged with tracking data needs and promoting data sharing policies and practices.
The appropriate skills include proven experience and leadership in research on the fundamental understanding of data science, bioinformatics, computational biology, and/or data integration and harmonization.
The job posting closes on Thursday, May 12.
How to Apply: Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, and contact details for three (3) references electronically to Michele Pearson (firstname.lastname@example.org) and include Chief, BRAIN Bioinformatics and Data Integration in the Subject Line.
