This role will involve engaging in both research and education in this fast moving field, developing a distinctive research profile and collaborating with our growing community of scholars and solution delivery partners from government, commerce, and society.

Your teaching activities will inform and enthuse a new generation of specialists and your research will expand the reach and impact of data science into new areas of application.

We offer you the opportunity and resources to excel and further your career in a supportive, highly collaborative and internationally facing environment. As a university with a strong global outlook, we are committed to building and enhancing our relationships with our partners in Europe and beyond.
