Senior Data Management and Integration Scientist - Colorado Evaluation and Action LabJob Description
The Colorado Evaluation and Action Lab ("Colorado Lab") is a collaboration between the University of Denver and the Colorado Governor's office. The mission of the Colorado Lab is to improve the lives of Colorado residents by partnering with state and local governments to strengthen coordinated and efficient person-centered services. A major portfolio of work at the Colorado Lab is to support state agency partners and develop the Linked Information Network of Colorado (LINC), a centralized capacity in the Governor's Office of Information Technology (OIT) that will integrate data across state agencies for approved research and analytic projects.
The Senior Data Management and Integration Scientist (SDIS) will be working within OIT to serve as the primary staff for LINC data management and integration needs. Through June 2019, the SDIS will be a benefited employee of the University of Denver. The SDIS will report to the Director of Data Integration and Analytics at the Colorado Lab, but this person will be located within OIT and day-to-day operations will be overseen by the Chief Data Officer at OIT. OIT and the Colorado Lab will communicate frequently to ensure both organizations' objectives and direction are aligned.
The SDIS will be responsible for linking data from state agencies for approved projects through a to-be-determined identity resolution process, then deidentifying, anonymizing or aggregating the data for requestors based on parameters established by a governing body. Critical to the success of this position is the ability to identify and implement solutions that do not presently exist to address data management and integration challenges within OIT. This will involve taking the initiative to find solutions from other jurisdictions or expert resources from organizations or online forums. While the SDIS will have direct guidance and supervision at OIT and the Colorado Lab, the expectation is that the SDIS has enough expert experience in data management and integration to make educated independent decisions.
This is a temporary, full-time benefitted position at the University of Denver through June 2019. The role will then be transitioned to a temporary, full-time benefitted staff position located in OIT from July 2019 to June 2020, with the expectation of a permanent full-time, benefitted staff position starting July 2020.
