*Job Description
The Analyst/Programmer in Enterprise Translational Informatics at the Center for Biomedical
Informatics (CBMi) is responsible for supervised development and implementation of highly
creative and reliable tools in order to optimize informatics solutions in the research setting for
bio-repository studies and enterprise translational informatics solutions. Most projects will
relate directly and indirectly to the Children’s Brain and Tumor Tissue Consortium, but will have
wider enterprise implications. This position demands an individual with superior technical
programming skills who can quickly apply this knowledge to define a “best path” for a wide
variety of projects. The Analyst/Programmer will develop solutions for a fairly complex
organization to yield deliverables such as bioinformatic analysis modules that utilize large and
complex data types, data extraction/analysis modules that are dependent on complex
underlying healthcare data systems, and process-oriented modules that help maintain patient
privacy and further the efficiencies in biorepository studies.
The programmer/analyst will work closely with the Applications Research team in Translational
Informatics to understand and execute on client requirements, design of solution sets, coding,
testing and implementation for programming projects that affect the bio-repository and
translational research community. The individual will be able to very quickly and independently
translate requirements from disparate functions into deliverables that are immediately high in
quality, extensible as defined by a long-term strategic plan, and intuitively accessed and
utilized by users.
