The Neuroscience of Addiction Laboratory, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University seeks a Data Manager to optimize systems for entry, storage, extraction, integration, and analysis of clinical, neuropsychological, electrophysiological, and brain imaging data from over 1000 (and growing) individuals participating in cross-sectional and longitudinal research studies of chronic effects of alcohol, HIV infection, and normal aging on the brain. The Data Manager will be responsible for day-to-day management of information workflow and data quality control, initially supporting current systems (see sibis.sri.com) while exploring ways to ensure future scalability, stability, and integrity of data storage using enhanced informatics tools and secure web-based technologies. The manger will need to work within the central computational infrastructure of the lab, which include a common development environment deployed on Linux servers, using web based issue trackers, documenting procedures and scripts on lab internal wiki pages, creating and deploying unit tests, and submitting scripts to central, version controlled repositories.
The ability to handle multiple projects and superior communication skills are central to this role, which include timely and clear responses to inquiries by lab members and collaborators. The data manager will also have the opportunity to apply mathematical techniques to model longitudinal changes in clinical, neuropsychological, and neuroimaging measures; integrate data across modalities; and perform statistical analysis. The lab provides a family-like environment with excellent work-life balance and is located a 5-minute walk from the Caltrain.

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, 9000 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.
