      GIS Technician (PT, 16hrs/wk, flexible) will manage an
      extensive GIS for an NIH grant that is investigating
      neighborhood-level influences on health in four cities
      in northern California. This study is a prospective
      mortality follow-up of 8,419 women and men who
      participated in one of five cross-sectional surveys in
      1979-1990. Survey data have been linked to current
      death records for mortality endpoints, and their
      1979-1990 addresses have been geo-coded and linked to
      1980 and 1990 census data and historical data (e.g.,
      alcohol outlets, grocery stores, parks, schools) for
      measures of the neighborhood social and physical
      environment.
      The research team is seeking a highly motivated and
      team-oriented individual to manage the GIS and assist
      with the spatial analysis of investigating the
      relationships between neighborhoods' physical and
      social environments and health (using Arcview
      software), incorporating (1) sociodemographic and risk
      factor information from 8,419 women and men aged 25-74
      from the Stanford Heart Disease Prevention Program
      (SHDPP) conducted from 1979-1990; (2)
      neighborhood-level socioeconomic information from
      census data (1980, 1990); (3) mortality data through
      2000; and (4) neighborhood-level goods, services, and
      community resources from historical data. The position
      also requires performing spatial analysis to determine
      density and proximity of neighborhood-level goods and
      services and assisting with the preparation of
      manuscripts and presentations for scientific meetings.
