Database Manager

Imperial College London - School of Public Health

Neuroepidemiology and Ageing Research Unit                                                      

Applications are invited to join the Neuroepidemiology and Ageing Research Unit (NEA) in the School of Public Health. This post will be based at Imperial White City campus and/or Charing Cross Hospital campus, Hammersmith.

With a rapidly ageing population, dementia has become a major focus of public health interest, leading to significant investments in studies and interventions worldwide. This is an exciting opportunity to support important research in this area, by leading on the management of data for our healthy volunteers who have signed up to the CHARIOT: Cognitive Health in Ageing Register. The postholder would have a key responsibility in decision-making and planning, involving keeping updated with current data science issues and progress, and evaluating and improving on current systems in place.

The successful post holder will have excellent knowledge of SQL and stored procedures, and the ability to evaluate current procedures and implement improvements as needed. They will work closely with a multi-disciplinary research group to understand user requirements for the register and needs of specific studies, and provide a responsive and high quality service to our researchers and volunteers. Proven experience of developing and supporting database applications is vital, as is a good understanding of Information Governance and Data Security requirements.

This is a full time post for a fixed-term of one year in the first instance.
