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
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.
