The Center for Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences Research (CIBSR) within the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is seeking to hire a Research Data Analyst 1 (RDA 1) to manage and analyze large amounts of information, under the direction of investigators and researchers. The RDA 1 will be primarily responsible for database management and data analysis and will be expected to complete the following: manage, clean, analyze data sets, prepare written reports for scientific and clinician investigators, communicate and write results in an understandable and effective manner.
We are looking for a reliable, detail-oriented, and responsible individual who will perform well in a collaborative setting by demonstrating initiative, being responsive to requests made by investigators, and showing competence in multi-project management. The candidate will have an array of opportunities to enrich his/her research experience and publications through collaborations with clinician investigators in the department who have expertise in areas such as depression, autism, genetic disorder, imaging studies/neuroscience, neuroethics, ethics of machine learning in healthcare, and various health and mental health research. Many studies also employ longitudinal designs with and without randomization.
Excellent communication skills and fluency in SPSS/SAS and/or R is required, and proficiency with database management (e.g. Redcap) is highly desired. Individuals with some experience in building websites or in developing R/R Shiny tools will have more diverse opportunities. Individuals with familiarity and experience in applying machine learning methods including natural language processing will have opportunities to analyze language data.

Located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University is recognized as one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions. Leland and Jane Stanford founded the University to "promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization." Stanford opened its doors in 1891, and more than a century later, it remains dedicated to finding solutions to the great challenges of the day and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world. The University's thriving diverse community is comprised of nearly 7000 undergraduate students, 12000 graduate students, 2000 faculty members, 1900 postdoctoral scholars, and over 11,000 academic and administrative staff in seven schools including several interdisciplinary research centers and institutes. The campus spreads over 8000 contiguous acres and nearly all undergraduates live on campus. Stanford offers bachelor's and master's degrees in addition to doctoral degrees (PhD, MD, DMA and JD) plus a number of professional and continuing education programs and certifications.
