Full-time and fixed-term for 24 months

The Data Science Institute seeks an outstanding individual to establish and maintain strong relationships with internal academic staff with the goal of increasing the impact and communication of Data Science research at Imperial. This will involve assisting with new grant applications, supporting our academic labs in advancing their research programmes, managing the DSI fellowship programme and creating a new series of White Papers. The Papers will shape the discourse in data science and play a key role in communicating the depth and breadth of Imperial’s expertise and insight to other stakeholders.   

This new post is an exciting opportunity to contribute to a recently established and fast growing global institute at Imperial, whose goal is to establish a new collaborative approach to grand challenge problems with a data science dimension. Alongside traditional academic departments, these institutes are intended to be the hub for facilitating college’s multidisciplinary research, interfacing with a wide range of external partners and stakeholders and to lead the College's input to policy setting across government and business.

The DSI Stakeholder Engagement Manager will support the communication of the diverse range of data science research at Imperial. This will include planning, writing and dissemination of such grant applications, news articles and White Papers for the DSI. The postholder will work closely with academics across the university to craft exceptional papers that meet the interests of our desired audiences. A core part of the role will be to identify and consult key stakeholders and disseminate the papers effectively to reach the desired audience. This role would suit an ambitious individual with a strong scientific or technical background who is keen to gain experience in science communication and to develop a compelling vision for the future based on scientific advances.
