The Data Architecture, Analysis and Visualization team is part of the Medical Data and Information Solutions group. Our mission is the design, implementation and support of technical solutions to improve data collection, curation, tabulation and analysis processes. One of our focus areas is the metadata management for clinical data standards; a key enabler for interoperability and data FAIRification. We manage a metadata platform based on Semantic Web technologies, used to publish data standards and related metadata. We are responsible for designing vocabularies, organizing our metadata store and ensuring proper information flows across connected applications. We are partnering with Biometrics and Informatics to improve and optimize data related processes.

We are shaping the future landscape to enable better quality in data management, and enhanced data and insights sharing to help scientists to develop new medicines with the goal of personalized healthcare (PHC). For our vision to come true, we are searching for an Information Architect to join our team.

  • Work closely with the development team to enhance/extend the functionalities of our semantic based metadata management platform
  • Investigate, expand, and advance our state of the art platform to support business needs and research related tools available on the market
  • Participate in cross-functional projects and initiatives that contribute to PHC programmes

We are looking for a self-driven Information Architect to join our team at the interface between Biometrics users and our software development team. You enjoy working in a team and have good communication skills. You bring expertise in understanding stakeholder needs and translating them into required vocabularies and/or applications.
