Job Summary

The incumbent is a detail-minded individual who will manage and deploy a 
growing database of clinical research data -- using heterogeneous 
data-management systems -- and administer the computers on which they reside.  
The primary data-management systems include PostgreSQL and CDSI DataFax in a
Unix (Solaris and Linux) environment, and they house clinical data from 
multiple protocols with multiple research networks.  The data-management 
systems need to provide regular, reliable access to both staff from multiple

Scope of Responsibilities

The incumbent will administer and develop a PostgreSQL relational database for
the curation and analysis of clinical research data, and administer SCHARP's

system, including troubleshooting, testing, validation, system administration, 
software patches/upgrades, and user support.

-- Extend SCHARP's nascent PostgreSQL installation across multiple functional
groups, to be used as a repository of clinical and lab data for multiple 
research protocols.  This includes testing and validation of data-management
processes and managing multiple users with varying access requirements.

-- Act as a central point of contact for data-management issues and liason with 
different departments as part of the PostgreSQL rollout, to determine needs 
and reconcile incompatible requests.

-- When necessary, Unix system/network administration at the infrastructure 
level, and developing data-management tools, both within PostgreSQL and
in Perl and/or Java.

Minimum Qualifications

At least one of the following is required, although both are desired:

-- Three years of experience working with and administering a Unix-based 
relational database, preferably PostgreSQL.
-- Three years of experience administering CDSI DataFax software.

All of the following qualifications are required:

-- Experience with data-modelling and the use of relational databases in a 
cross-enterprise environment.
-- Three years of hands-on experience with Unix, including building 
applications from source, preferably in Solaris and Linux.

-- Excellent communication skills.

Desirable Qualifications 

-- Data management in a clinical environment.
-- Programming experience with Perl and/or Java.
-- Experience with SAS.
-- Testing and validation of data-management systems.
