  • Act as a liaison between SCHARP study teams and the external labs to ensure accurate database design and timely processing of study results.
  • Work with SCHARP statisticians and external labs to define file specifications, quality checks, and dataset/file formatting.
  • Collaborate with other SCHARP groups to develop and maintain standard programming quality practices including code standardization, verification and validation efforts, and associated documentation; contribute to adoption of CDISC standards as applicable
  • Adhere and contribute to quality-assurance procedures, standard operating procedures and source code version control practices.
  • Participate in and/or lead projects that support development or improvement of LDO processes, directing junior-level programmers and support staff as necessary.
  • Work in a team environment, communicate effectively with colleagues, and be responsive to the needs of SCHARP staff as well as external collaborators as required

    Minimum qualifications:
    • Bachelor's or Master's degree in Biological Sciences, Computer Science or similar degree in a scientific, technical, or health-related field
    • At least 5 years of practical programming experience, with experience in multiple programming languages, and at least 2 years of experience with SAS or Python programming
    • Must be flexible, work well in a team environment, and be capable of meeting tight deadlines
    • Must be organized and detail-oriented, with excellent oral and written communication skills

      Preferred qualifications:
      • 3+ years of SAS and/or Python programming experience in a scientific or health-related field
      • Experience programming in support of laboratory data, clinical trials, statistical programming in a clinical research setting or other health research programming support preferred.
      • Familiarity with database design, development and/or management
      • Working knowledge of CDISC and/or other data standards
      • Understanding of current/standard approaches to data collection, processing of raw data into analysis datasets, and other downstream research activities is highly desirable
      • Preference will be given to candidates with experience in SAS programming related to laboratory assay data management or analysis
