The HIV/AIDS Division
The HIV/AIDS Division Positive Health Program is a vital academic research and clinical center whose goals include generating new knowledge to improve the care of vulnerable patients. The proposed Analyst IV will provide research support for the implementation science research group, located in the UCSF Department of Medicine, which specializes in analysis of real-world cohort data from ongoing projects related to HIV care, treatment and prevention in both Africa and the United States. The Data Manager will serve on a multidisciplinary team consisting of clinical researchers, epidemiologists, field site directors, programmer/analysts, and statisticians. This team will be responsible for coordinating the scientific design and direction, data collection and management, and quality control components of longitudinal studies of HIV infection and its complications.
The Data Manager will work directly with the Principal Investigator (s) and be involved in all phases of data coordination for large global health programs located in multiple sites throughout Uganda and Kenya, including but not limited to performing basic statistical analysis, developing questionnaires, quality control monitoring, data management, monitoring recruitment and retention and compiling follow-up statistics, and preparing tables, charts and graphs for use in publications and presentations. In addition, the Data Manager will search and review scientific literature, screen and summarize articles. The Data Manager will entail planning, coordinating and oversight of data systems and will act as a liaison between studies’ multiple principal investigators, in-country data managers and coordinators, and UCSF, UCB, and UNC counterparts for the purposes of database management and shaping, and analysis. The Data Manager will require frequent communication to domestic international collaborating sites requiring cultural sensitivity as well as independence and decision making skills regarding data organization and presentation that will shape the overall development, integrity, and direction of research program’s objectives.
