Data Science Health Innovation Fellow (6028U) Job #27188

In 2019, UC Berkeley, UCSF, Johnson & Johnson Innovation and Janssen Research & Development came together to establish the Data Science Health Innovation Fellowship Program, to bring together experienced data scientists with academic and industry researchers, to facilitate collaboration among scientists, engineers, clinicians, and entrepreneurs, to tackle complex problems in health and patient care and to accelerate innovation in healthcare through data-driven approaches.

This fellowship program offers a two-year research and entrepreneurial opportunity for seasoned data science professionals to apply computer science, data science, data engineering, and computational statistics research and development principles, along with relevant domain science knowledge, to complex problems and datasets, to advance understanding of health and improve patient care by providing meaningful clinical insights. The fellowship program will recruit serial cohorts of up to five outstanding data scientists per year from industry and academia. We are seeking applications from a wide range of backgrounds and with specializations across the burgeoning field of data science, such as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, developing and optimizing methodologies, software, and tools while working with various large datasets. The datasets Fellows have worked with may be healthcare related, such as electronic medical records, clinical notes, medical images, high-content microscopy and ‘omics, or should have comparable levels of scale and complexity. Fellows will receive training, support, and guidance from domain science and medical experts, including a mentor from each of the three collaborating organizations. The primary responsibility of the Fellows is to successfully identify and conduct interdisciplinary data-intensive research related to healthcare and use computational and data science technology as a tool to accomplish the aims of the research.

Decolonizing data

While this article focuses on public health, the discussion of decolonizing data is valuable: Decolonizing data is where "the community itself is the one determining what is the information they want us to gather. Why are we gathering it? Who's interpreting it? And are we interpreting it in a way that truly serves our communities? Decolonizing data is about controlling our own story, and making decisions based on what is best for our people. That hasn't been done in data before, and that's what's shifting and changing."

NEON Data in the Classroom: Using the QUBES Platform and Faculty Mentoring Networks to Build, Adapt, and Publish Data­-Driven Teaching Resources

  • The integration of data-­centric teaching practices plays a major role in efforts to transform biology education. Working with authentic data increases student exposure to scientific practices and contributes to the development of quantitative skills.  

 

  • Bring large-­scale ecological data into the classroom can be challenging, where the skills required to manipulate and analyze these data sets can be a large hurdle for both educators and students.  

 

  • We share the outcomes from a partnership between university/college faculty, the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON), and the Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis project (QUBES) to develop and disseminate teaching resources that use NEON data and provide training and community to faculty. 

 

  • The NEON FMN has been offered for three semesters with 37 faculty participating, resulted in a wide variety of new and adapted modules being publicly available.

 

  • We found the QUBES-FMN model to be successful in providing online professional development and creating communities of educators without geographic barriers.  Our work highlights how this model of curriculum development and faculty engagement has been successfully applied to NEON data for the classroom.
