The National Center of Competence in Research (NCCR) “AntiResist: New approaches to combat antibiotic-resistant bacteria” (2020-2032) is a Swiss-wide interdisciplinary center for antibiotic research with strong collaborations between biologists, clinicians, engineers, computational scientists and chemists. This network is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation as part of their major support in strengthening research in areas of strategic importance. Our goals are to develop laboratory models mimicking infection processes in human patients, and to use these models to discover innovative antibiotics and alternative strategies to combat antibiotic-resistant bacteria. At the core of this venture are direct links between basic and clinical research, bioengineering, and the pharmaceutical industry to help solving the current antibiotic crisis.
NCCR AntiResist is recruiting for the position of Research Data Officer, 100%.
The Research Data Officer (RDO) is responsible for building and managing the Research Data Ecosystem of the consortium. The RDO is a member of the extended management team of NCCR AntiResist and a member of the Data Management Committee of NCCR AntiResist. The research data of the project will be distributed on a heterogeneous set of existing, and possibly some new data management systems for different types of data (microscopy, next-generation sequencing, proteomics). In collaboration with data providers involved in the project (e.g., technology facilities across the consortium) and with scientific IT platforms at the University Hospital Basel (USB) and University of Basel (sciCORE)), the RDO and the Medical Data Officer (MDO) will coordinate the Data Management Committee to develop and maintain an environment supporting data federation (e.g., cross-linking identifiers at the various service platforms and/or linking data hosted in local data management systems).
Key responsibilities include, but are not limited to the following:
In execution of these functions, the RDO deals with the data produced by the non-clinical part of the consortium and works with the MDO to merge this data with clinical data. The aim of the consortium is to manage the data according to the FAIR principles (findable, accessible, interoperable, reusable).
For this challenging and exciting position, we are looking for these qualifications:
We offer a highly visible, vibrant, inclusive, and flexible international working environment in a network of world-leading research institutes and pharmaceutical companies in Switzerland. The working place is at University of Basel as home institution of the NCCR. The RDO will report to the scientific leadership of the NCCR project and will be embedded in sciCORE, the scientific computing center of University of Basel (https://scicore.unibas.ch/). Salary will be commensurate with institutional guidelines of the University of Basel and level of experience. The position is available immediately. The initial contract is for 1 year, with the expectation to extend to each continued 4-year phase of the NCCR. The position of Research Data Officer is extendable up to the full program ending in 2032.
The application should include a brief personal statement, explaining how your qualifications and experience make you a good candidate for this job, together with a full, up-to-date CV and addresses of 2 references.
We start reviewing applications from 1 October 2022 until the position is filled. Please note that only online applications via the platform link will be accepted. For further information, please send an email to email@example.com
