NIH Releases Strategic Plan for Data Science, Seeks Chief Data Strategist

Storing, managing, standardizing, and publishing the vast amounts of data produced by biomedical research is a critical NIH mission. In support of this effort, NIH has released its first Strategic Plan for Data Science, which provides a roadmap for modernizing the NIH-funded biomedical data science ecosystem.

The strategic plan calls for the appointment of a Chief Data Strategist. This person will guide the development and implementation of NIH’s data-science activities and provide leadership within the broader biomedical research data ecosystem. The vacancy announcement for the Chief Data Strategist is available on the NIH Jobs website. Applications will be reviewed starting July 9 and will be accepted until the position is filled.
