DESCRIPTION

Biomedical Informatics is an interdisciplinary field at the intersection of biology, medicine, and quantitative sciences. Biomedical informatics researchers develop new methods to integrate and analyze vast amounts of data generated in the laboratory, clinical and translational research, clinical encounters, and population studies.

The goals of the Department of Biomedical Informatics are to (1) promote excellence in biomedical informatics research, (2) collaborate with biomedical researchers in developing new quantitative methods that enable the formulation and testing of original hypotheses, (3) train the next generation of biomedical informatics specialists, and (4) interface with engineering, mathematics, information and computer science communities, serving as a hub for quantitative scientists focused on biomedical research.

This department leads multiple federally and non-profit funded biomedical research projects, which are focused on the integration, analysis, and sharing of biomedical and health care data for the scientific community, as well as patient-centered research. In addition, the department runs a complex computational infrastructure that allows access and analysis of these data in a privacy-preserving manner.

General: Works on research data analysis assignments that are of moderate diversity in scope. Exercises judgment within generally defined practices and policies in selecting biostatistical methods and techniques for obtaining solutions.

Specific: Performs genetic and clinical epidemiology studies using VA healthcare data. The data analyst should have experience in SQL programming and data analysis utilizing R. They will be responsible for identifying and extracting study-related data into the project workspace, aiding in the application of inclusion/exclusion criteria, and participating closely in operationalizing selection of candidate case and sub-cohort subjects for studies in inflammatory bowel disease and colorectal cancer. They will manage records for tens of thousands of Veterans within the Million Veteran Program (MVP). The data analyst will be responsible for executing summary data analyses, genome-wide association studies and polygenic risk score derivations, and will contribute to risk prediction modeling with other team members.

Experience working with VA Informatics and Computing Infrastructure (VINCI) and Veterans Health Administration (VHA) data is preferable, but this is not essential as the other personnel within our collaborative groups have established expertise working with VHA data and can provide appropriate training/orientation.

Inter-disciplinary projects include working closely with clinical collaborators, conceptualizing research questions, and joining a dynamic team dedicated to supporting a diverse research program.

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS

  • Six (6) years of related experience, education/training, OR an Bachelor’s degree in related area plus two (2) years of related experience/training.
