The second position is an associate data director with responsibilities to administrate the HBHI data hub, a university-wide data infrastructure and service center housing Medicare claims and, eventually, many other data resources and provide a platform for data-driven research collaborations. The role will have both operational and strategic responsibilities.   Operational responsibilities will include managing data assets, processing data requests, monitoring data hub budget, and assisting junior investigators through trainings and preliminary data runs.  Strategic responsibilities will include assisting with developing and implementing plans for growth and sustainability of the HBHI data hub and prioritizing purchases to grow data hub resources.
