A full-time Data Scientist position is available on a collaborative research project between Cardiff Metropolitan University, the University of Bath, the Welsh Rugby Union, the Rugby Football Union and World Rugby. The Data Scientist will design and develop a data analysis tool to examine the post-concussion injury risk in professional Rugby Union players, by utilising machine learning algorithms.
