NIH is seeking a chief data strategist

The National Institutes of Health posted a job listing May 14 for a chief data strategist and director of its recently established Office of Data Science Strategy.

The chief data strategist will report directly to the NIH director, and serve as principal advisor to the agency director on large-scale platforms and technology that facilitate data science. The individual will be responsible for supervising staff, as well as planning and managing the office's resources, and he or she will lead the NIH-wide effort to deliver next-generation technology that can advance scientific discovery and integrate existing data science efforts into a new data system.

"The CDS will: 1) provide leadership for a broad range of initiatives and projects that align with NIH's strategic plans; 2) catalyze the use of new platforms and methods to gain deeper insights from NIH's vast data resources; and 3) help mature competencies and capabilities of the biomedical research workforce — amongst NIH as well as our greater research ecosystem — to capitalize on new large-scale biomedical data and analytic tools," the posting reads.

The agency will begin reviewing applications July 9 and continue until the position is filled.
