Congratulations to the team of Seng Chan You, Seongwon Lee, Byungjin Choi, and Rae Woong Park on the publication of Establishment of an International Evidence Sharing Network Through Common Data Model for Cardiovascular Research in Korean Circulation Journal.
Congratulations to the team of Ki-Yeol Park, Min-Ho Kim, Seong-Ho Choi, and Eun-Kyoung Pang on the publication of Association of periodontitis with menopause and hormone replacement therapy: a hospital cohort study using a common data model in the Journal of Periodontal and Implant Science.
Congratulations to Noémie Elhadad, who was selected to serve as the next chair of the Department of Biomedical Informatics (DBMI) at Columbia University. DBMI is the coordinating center for the OHDSI community. Noémie has been a long-time collaborator within the OHDSI community; she was a panelist for the Women in Real-World Analytics Leadership Forum during the 2019 Symposium, she discussed HERA, a Large-Scale Characterization of Health Equity study, during the 2020 Symposium plenary, and recently led a breakout discussion on maternal health research during a May 2022 community call.
Northeastern University invites applications for multiple tenured/ tenure-track faculty positions in support of an Impact Engine centered on large-scale observational health data science and informatics to start in the fall of 2023. These faculty will be core members of our Real-World Healthcare Navigator (RWHN) Impact Engine which aims to change how research is translated into clinical practice by establishing a sustainable service that leads the way in fully reproducing health studies (Real-World Healthcare Navigator | Impact Engines). Successful candidates will work closely with the OHDSI Center at Northeastern’s Roux Institute to develop and apply healthcare analytics in the real-world evidence (RWE) area with the goal of improving patient health outcomes. More information and an application link are available here.
• The OHDSI Center at the Roux Institute seeks a postdoctoral fellow to join their team focused on developing statistical methods and applying them to observational data from large-scale federated datasets (e.g. electronic health records and administrative claims data), with specific applications to the safety of biologics. This research will directly improve our ability to use real world data to characterize patient populations, construct population level estimates relating exposures to health outcomes, and to enhance clinical decision making through improved patient-level predictions. More information and an application link are available here.
• FDA/CDER’s Division of Hepatology and Nutrition is seeking a clinician with bioinformatics or biostatistics training to work with the Drug-Induced Liver Injury (DILI) Team to evaluate large datasets of liver-related data, collaborate on the Team’s review of drugs with hepatotoxicity signals, and help develop informatics-based processes in DILI evaluation across the Agency. Contact Judy Racoosin at email@example.com for information about the application process (that will be through USAJOBS).
• Andrew Williams recently announced two exciting new openings at Tufts Medicine. 1) Senior Project Manager for a multisite multiyear grant standardizing critical care EHR and waveform data. (CHoRUS Bridge2AI) 2) Lead software developer and research data warehouse manager for Tufts Medicine’s OMOP instance and related services. Remote work is possible for both positions. If you have questions, please reach out to Andrew at firstname.lastname@example.org.
• The Johns Hopkins OHDSI team has just put out an opening for a data scientist/statistical engineer position. The candidate is expected to help create further synergy between the domain expertise of Johns Hopkins’s Precision Medicine Centers of Excellence and the extensive health data network provided through our OHDSI collaboration. More details and an application link are available here.
Patrick Ryan introduced the OMOP Common Data Model (CDM) Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) Challenge on the forums recently. All members of the OHDSI community are welcome and encouraged to submit their entries of the best ERD for the OMOP CDM to this forum post (or to the CDM Workgroup MS Teams site) by TOMORROW, Tuesday, Dec 13. One winner will be selected by a committee from the CDM workgroup, and announced on OHDSI’s last community call of the year on Dec 20.
