The major goals of the study are to provide a publicly available data resource to examine the relationships between environmental influences -- including substance use -- and adolescent brain and cognitive development. The Healthy Brain and Child Development (HBCD) Study is a large-scale longitudinal study of the brain, cognitive, and emotional development that will follow mothers and their children from before birth through the first decade of life. The project will involve over 7,000 families at 25 sites across the United States and aims to better understand which harmful and protective environments exert the greatest impact on child development. The Bioinformatics Supervisor will serve as Co-Director of the Data Analysis, Informatics & Resource Center (DAIRC) of the ABCD Study. In this role, they will oversee all efforts of the center related to management of the ABCD data resource, including data capture, ingestion, processing, quality assurance, monitoring, and reporting as well as curation for public data releases. The incumbent will lead the DAIRC teams for REDCap data capture development and data science/management and supervise the work of the DAIRC Associate Directors and their teams as it relates to above goals.
