The Health Informatics Centre (HIC - https://www.dundee.ac.uk/hic/) supports high impact research through the collection and active management of high quality data in a secure environment with strong data governance, and its delivery to academics and other users, to improve healthcare and population health.
HIC’s data management processes, as part of the TAyside medical Science Centre (TASC), are safe and effective and include secure hosting & backup, robust governance procedures and the completion of missing data to improve quality and allow linkage between datasets. HIC is committed to supporting research use of data through the delivery of high quality metadata, links to expert users and clinical staff along with support to users in managing and analysing the data.
Working in a multi-disciplinary team you will be involved in the development of enhancements and the re-engineering of existing systems alongside the design and implementation of new solutions.
Depending on your skillset your work can vary from developing mission critical database driven desktop applications to supporting clinicians in answering research questions by identifying and extracting data; you will move to work on different work streams dependant on the project requirements at any one time. You will be expected to investigate both business and research requirements and to translate those requirements into solutions. You will be expected to have a good understanding of state of the art technologies available to match these requirements.
You must be able to work independently, and to agreed customer deadlines. Manage your own projects to completion, as well as providing support for others. The candidate must feel comfortable taking ownership and driving key work areas within the HIC development team.
You will produce system documentation in line with documentation standards and keep abreast of developments in the standards and modelling community for health information and knowledge.
You will regularly be required to communicate clearly on complex and specialised issues both orally and in writing, sometimes to non-specialists and may be required to draft revised policies, procedures and processes within own area of responsibility.
