**Associate Director for Data Science**  
  
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is seeking exceptional candidates for
the newly established and important position of Associate Director for Data
Science (ADDS). In response to the recommendations made by
the Data and Informatics Working Group of the Advisory Committee to the
Director (see http://acd.od.nih.gov/diwg.htm), the NIH leadership has
established the ADDS as a senior position with NIH-wide responsibilities
focused on data science. The incumbent serves as the
principal advisor to the NIH Director, and indirectly to all NIH leadership,
about the broad area encompassed by data science (i.e., bioinformatics,
computational biology, biomedical informatics, biostatistics, information
science, quantitative biology, etc.). The ADDS reports
directly to the NIH Director, and is regarded as NIH's overall programmatic
leader in data science. The incumbent provides a vision for
the utilization and extraction of knowledge from the data generated by and
relevant to NIH research, and advises experts throughout the agency on a
variety of complex, unique, and/or sensitive situations and issues in data
science to ensure continual achievement of NIH's dynamic biomedical research
mission. The ADDS plays the leading role, on behalf of NIH,
in coordinating and collaborating with appropriate government agencies, other
funding agencies, and private organizations involved in scientific data
generation, management, and analysis, including extensive interactions with
stakeholders in the research community and experts in the private sector.

  
The ADDS also serves as Chair of the newly created trans-NIH Scientific Data
Council (SDC), whose responsibilities include: (a) programmatic oversight of
the NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative; (b) trans-NIH programmatic
leadership and coordination of data science activities; (c) coordination with
data science activities beyond NIH; (d) significant involvement in the
establishment and management of NIH data-sharing policies; and (d) NIH-wide,
long-term strategic planning in data science.

  
**Location**  
  
Bethesda, MD (NIH Main Campus)

  
**Challenge**  
  
As the world's largest medical research facility, NIH consists of 27
Institutes/Centers, including the Clinical Center (an on-site research
hospital), the Fogarty International Center, and the National Library of
Medicine. NIH's national program of health research and research training is
currently funded at more than $29 billion annually. NIH has over 18,000
employees.

  
The ADDS will focus on the urgent need and increased opportunities for
capitalizing on the expanding collections of biomedical data to advance NIH's
mission. In doing so, the incumbent will provide programmatic NIH-wide
leadership for areas of data science that relate to data emanating from many
areas of study (e.g., genomics, imaging, and electronic heath records). This
will require knowledge about multiple domains of study as well as familiarity
with approaches for integrating data from these various domains.

  
**Required Qualifications**  
  
Applicants must possess a Ph.D., M.D., or comparable doctorate degree in a
field of health science plus senior-level scientific experience and knowledge
of research programs in one or more areas related to the biomedical research
enterprise. The individual should be known and respected, both nationally and
internationally, within their profession as someone of scientific prominence,
with a distinguished record of research accomplishments and leadership
credentials. It is preferable that the candidate is an active scientist who
leads a highly productive group conducting cutting-edge research. The
individual should also have demonstrated expertise in policy development as
well as the ethical, legal, and social implications of the major issues
relevant to data science as it pertains to biomedical research. They should
have demonstrated leadership and broad visionary capabilities in the research
arena, with demonstrated ability to engage others to create and execute an
organization's vision; to navigate successfully within and collaborate across
the public sector to achieve research objectives; and to optimize
organizational performance by developing strategic priorities, setting and
communicating clearly defined expectations, promoting accountability for
results, and resolving operational problems and issues. Candidates should have
demonstrated management acumen, including identification and management of
financial and human resource needs; proven ability to make complex and
strategic decisions to optimize resource usage, mitigate risks, and achieve
desired results; and, the ability to build, mentor, motivate, and maintain a
culturally diverse staff.

  
**Salary/Benefits**  
  
The ADDS will be appointed at a salary commensurate with his/her
qualifications. Full Federal benefits will be provided, including leave,
health and life insurance, long-term care insurance, retirement, and savings
plan (401k equivalent).

  
**How To Apply**  
  
Applicants must submit a current CV and bibliography electronically to Ms.
Regina Reiter at [log in to unmask] (301- 402-1130). In
addition, applicants must also submit a supplemental narrative statement that
