The University of Wisconsin-Madison's Center for Health Disparities Research (CHDR) and the Betthauser Neuroimaging lab seeks a dynamic and engaged data scientist II to support a federally funded multisite project examining the impact of neighborhood disadvantage on brain health outcomes (The Neighborhoods Study: Contextual Disadvantage and Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias, R01 AG070883). This position specifically will facilitate research investigating relationships between neighborhood disadvantage and positron emission tomography imaging for Aβ plaques and tau tangles collected from several different sites across the United States. The successful applicant will work with Center for Health Disparities Research and Betthauser Lab team members to intake and organize PET and MR neuroimaging data, and develop, implement, and maintain automated MR and PET neuroimaging processing pipelines. The data scientist II will also perform quality checks of these data, and assemble datasets and data summaries used for disparities, aging and dementia research. Experience with PET neuroimaging is strongly preferred, as is experience with multiple scripting languages (e.g., MATLAB, bash, Python, etc.) and experience with Unix command line and Linux operating systems. The incumbent will regularly interface with collaborative partners across the nation, the UW Center for Health Disparities Research, the School of Medicine and Public Health, and researchers across the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. The Center for Health Disparities Research supports career development and learning and invites applicants who are seeking the opportunity to join an enthusiastic and supportive environment aimed at reducing health disparities in the US and beyond.

Job Summary: Contributes to a research agenda set by a lead researcher by preparing data sets, analyzing them using data science techniques, and presenting the results. May work independently or as part of a team.

The School of Medicine and Public Health and the Wisconsin Alzheimer's Institute have a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself, but also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, they strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
