Administrative Associate 3
Job Number: 75815
Looking for a new challenge? Be part of the launch of the new Department of Biomedical Data Science (DBDS) in the School of Medicine! The first department to be built from the ground up since 2003 and finishing our sophomore year, we are seeking an energetic professional to join our administrative team. We are preparing to consolidate into a newly remodeled space and need an Administrative Associate 3 to support a set of faculty members in their research, teaching and scholarly duties. The successful candidate will support the submission of sponsored research applications, travel planning, calendaring, buying and paying and general operational duties. The Administrative Associate 3 will work directly with faculty and because excellent written skills are required, a cover letter is expected to accompany the resume.
DBDS was started in order to create an integrated field of biomedical data science, to recruit emerging talent in the field, to provide outstanding training to postdoctoral scholars and graduate students working in this area, and to provide and cultivate an intellectual home for collaborative research. As a basic science department, DBDS is devoted to the development of novel computational and statistical methods for acquiring, representing, storing, and analyzing biological and clinical data at all scales.
DBDS is being built by coalescing Stanford experts in biostatics and bioinformatics into this new department, while simultaneously recruiting new members to the faculty. Biomedical Data Science is key to pursuing the School's mission of Precision Health.
