EcoHealth Alliance seeks a creative, self-motivated and technically adept Data Librarian/Analyst to support our growing organization's data management needs related to our research in disease emergence, pandemic prediction and preparedness, and wildlife conservation. The Data Librarian/Analyst will work closely with our teams of scientists, ranging from field veterinarians to machine-learning specialists, as well as software engineers and staff, to maintain best practices for data management and facilitate research across the organization and with collaborators. The Data Librarian/Analyst will support the development of a common set of tools and practices for managing and harmonizing our diverse data (epidemiological, ecological, geospatial, and text) for varied project needs across the organization. This position will require work with researchers at a variety of technical skill levels to improve data management, reuse, interoperability, sharing, publication, real-time reporting and reproducibility. Time will be evenly split between (a) data curation and tooling and (b) providing support to project teams in data acquisition, analysis, and visualization tasks. This position is based in New York City, but due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, this position may initially be remote. Transition to required travel to the office will be evaluated based upon business need and staff safety.
