The Global Brain Health Institute ( has a unique opportunity for an International Database Support & Capacity Building Analyst to support a growing number of international fellows from around the world. The individual will assist these international Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health in creating, cleaning and maintaining datasets needed to implement studies within their international regions. S/he will assist the Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI) Atlantic Fellows and faculty in gathering, analyzing, and interpreting a wide variety of research data in a range of international settings on projects that range from neuroscience to clinical research and social research.

This will include offering strategic support on selecting data systems and setting them up to meet study needs. The candidate will maintain expertise in common databases frequently used by fellows, including our internal database to pull, collate, merge and report for the purpose of ongoing projects. The individual will also assist fellows in grant writing as needed and work closely with GBHI’s statistician to support basic analyses such as descriptive statistics. Common analytics tasks include preparing reports, charts, tables, and other visual aids and helping train fellows to perform these same analytics. The position will require remote work for fellows in their home regions around the world and may require international travel. The individual will work with leadership to maintain a common core GBHI clinical dataset for use across all geographies and partner with research teams who are implementing this core dataset globally.

The individual will demonstrate good judgment in selecting methods and techniques for obtaining solutions. S/he will work independently, informed by partnerships with faculty and fellows and with oversight from the GBHI Research Manager.
