DATA Scholar Program Announcement


The NIH Office of Data Science Strategy is pleased to announce the Data and Technology Advancement (DATA) National Service Scholar Program, a new opportunity for experienced data and computer scientists and engineers to tackle biomedical data challenges with the potential for substantial public health impact.

The one- to two-year positions will be based in NIH offices located in Bethesda and Rockville, MD, or Research Triangle Park, NC. DATA Scholars will:

  • Lead transformative NIH projects that leverage large data sets to advance knowledge in high-impact areas of biomedical research.
  • Directly communicate technical and project-related information with NIH senior leadership.
  • Collaborate with other DATA Scholars and the NIH data science community across broad disciplinary boundaries.
  • Engage with policymakers, top researchers, and industry partners.

The NIMH Data Archive (NDA) is featured in the Cloud-Native High-Performance Computing for Bioinformatics with Complex Data project. To date, biomedical researchers have not broadly adopted the use of cloud computing resources. The DATA Scholar will work with neuroimaging researchers to design containerized tools that the researchers will want to use and can customize for future research needs. The Scholar will work with some of the NIMH Data Archive’s 1,800 active users, as well as with researchers at the NIH.

Applicants should possess technical skills in areas such as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, data engineering, data science, database management, project management, software design, supercomputing, and/or bioinformatics. Industry experience is desired. Applicants should have an M.D., Ph.D. or equivalent doctoral degree and have advanced experience in data science or related fields.

Applications are due April 30, 2020.
