Data Steward for Rare Diseases Project

As the number of rare disease patients is small by definition, there is a pressing need for the joint analysis of patient data on natural disease history, genetic makeup, disease modifiers and treatment outcomes. However, the available data is fragmented across different care providers, registries, and countries, and cannot be used to their full potential because data get lost, are not associated with descriptive metadata, or miss essential details on the way they are produced.

Radboudumc took important first steps in the development of interoperable patient registries, based on the FAIR principles, facilitating joint analysis of patient data from multiple registries. In order to implement the ERN Core Services, including the Clinical Patient Management System and to help in particular with VASCERN’s Registry projects, they are looking for an ambitious DATA STEWARD based in Radboudumc, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

The successful candidate will work in a stimulating medical environment with a European dimension, and will actively participate in an international network of experts who collaborate on best data stewarding practices for rare disease data. The chosen candidate will work daily in close collaboration with the VASCERN Registry WG Chair, Prof. Leo Schultze Kool, The Vascern office in Paris (head Vascern Prof. G Jondeau and clinicians from our HCP members responsible for the registry projects, local administrative and medical representatives, and the local clinical research unit (URC).
