Own delivery of 2 data science projects and get hands-on technical experience using real data;

Establish links with project partners (internal or external) and work to provide solutions to real-world challenges;

Build skills and knowledge in advanced analytics, not only through mentorship and applied research, but also through on-site training opportunities in statistical analysis, visualisation, research methods and computer programming;

Work alongside leading scholars as part of the LIDA team and gain valuable work experience.

You will be a recent undergraduate, Master’s or PhD student in a relevant field and will have excellent numerical skills that may have been gained in the context of quantitative social science, computing, mathematics/statistics, medical bioinformatics or population studies.
