Job Offer | Clinical data manager for national consortium on epilepsy surgery, AMU
Clinical data manager for national consortium on epilepsy surgery – Aix-Marseille Université, Marseille, FRANCE
A position for an experienced clinical data manager is open to create and maintain an epileptic patient database including registration, normalization and security issues and to ensure the communication with the key partners in the academic, clinical and industry sectors with the aim of generating individual Virtual Patient models using The Virtual Brain (TVB) platform as framework (see http://www.thevirtualbrain.org). This database will be generated in the context of the EPINOV (Improving EPilepsy surgery management and progNOsis using Virtual brain technology) project led by Professor Fabrice Bartolomei (http://fr.ap-hm.fr/service/neurophysiologie-clinique-hopital-timone) funded by the RHU programme.
Candidates must be highly motivated to work on an interdisciplinary project and collaborate with the various members of the consortium. They should have a degree in biomedical engineering, medical informatics or equivalent level of knowledge. Candidates must possess a solid experience in management of clinical and/or research data and programming (C, MATLAB, Python). Experience with neuroimaging data (stereotactic EEG, MRI, DTI, MEG, EEG), clinical trials, neuroinformatics and its standard formats (for instance DICOM, XNAT, BIDS), machine learning and Big Data would be considered an advantage.
The EPINOV project and consortium
We are a national consortium composed of clinicians, researchers and industrial partners interested in improving epilepsy surgical prognosis using large–scale brain modelling based on individual epileptic patient data. A prospective, randomized multicenter trial will be conducted with subjects suffering from drug-resistant epilepsy. The clinical trial will systematically evaluate the added value of personalized brain modelling in the surgical decision making.
Terms of salary and employment
Salary will depend on the diploma and previous experience. Operating languages in the consortium are both French and English.
