We are looking for an enthusiastic and dynamic Data Science Specialist (DSS) to join the team, this is a key role that will provide technical support (statistical modelling, data storage, programming, etc) to a variety of data-intensive projects across the University via the Ask-JGI service (bristol.ac.uk/golding). The role holder will have the opportunity to engage across disciplines, participate in medium to long term data science projects that will lead to publications, this will be a unique opportunity to develop data science expertise in a number of contexts and areas of research. The Institute also organises data competitions, bespoke training and workshops and the role holder will liaise with the data providers, researchers and JGI staff to develop such activities. Also, the JGI supports a data visualisation working group and the DSS will work closely with academic leads developing ideas for the group.
Prospective candidates should have experience in statistical modelling, working knowledge of a number of statistical software packages (R, Phython, C, C++, etc), data management and storage experience and a PhD or equivalent. This is a full-time post, however, job share arrangements will be considered.
The Jean Golding Institute (bristol.ac.uk/golding) is a central hub for data science and data-intensive research at the University of Bristol.

The JGI is located in Royal Fort House, Royal Fort Gardens within the main University campus. The city of Bristol offers a diverse, multicultural and fun environment with a number of cultural and art events available all year round.
