The Center for Open Science (COS) is undertaking a project (to be announced) to continue work on automating and validating methods for assessing credibility of research claims in the social-behavioral and health-related sciences. COS will (1) extend the dataset to include evidence from preprints and health-related science evidence, and (2) conduct a competition to engage the machine-learning community to train and test algorithms by leveraging a large, enriched dataset of research claims and evidence. The project is expected to run from now to September 2025. Additionally, COS is engaged in a longitudinal project to investigate human flourishing across the globe (https://hfh.fas.harvard.edu/global-flourishing-study) and this role will assist in implementing data access requests from external researchers.
The Data Manager will be responsible for maintaining, adding to, and sharing the large dataset of claims and evidence. The role is responsible for supporting workflows of claim extraction with the research team, merging claims data with existing data, coordinating sharing of claims data and ‘ground-truth’ data with other external collaborators to enhance with expert assessment and for training and testing of algorithms, and sharing data from the longitudinal project with external researchers. This role is responsible for supporting and implementing ongoing research projects and will work with other COS teams to understand current opportunities and to provide research insights to advance our mission.
