The mission of the Neurological Clinical Research Institute (NCRI) is to accelerate translational research in neurological disorders through initiating and testing novel therapies by custom-designing research protocols, by bringing efficacy strategies and infrastructure to clinical research and implementing observational and interventional clinical trials. To empower the NCRI on its mission, and to capture and manage information from clinical research, the Center for Innovation and Bioinformatics of the NCRI develops, maintains, and deploys software platforms and programs. Working independently under minimal supervision of the Director, Center for Innovation and BioInformatics, the Data Analyst will:
Supports the technical and analytical capabilities of a talented multidisciplinary research team
Performs data analysis of data
Contributes to statistical analysis and visualization as-needed for research projects and presentations
Is a resource for other lab members as-needed for basic technical training and troubleshooting
The NCRI is looking for a motivated team player with the ability to provide a high level of services while working on multiple projects simultaneously. Excellent project management and communication skills, as well as being able to work independently, take initiative and prioritize tasks is required.
