You will have responsibilities ranging from: identifying data sources through literature reviews and engagement with external project partners; uploading data to the HESTIA data platform; supporting external data contributors to upload data and validating their uploads; providing supervision and guidance to interns and other project team members to upload data; analysing data; and writing and/or contributing to academic article writing.

Data plays a critical role in delivering a productivity and sustainability transformation of global agriculture, and you will be working at the forefront of efforts to improve data exchange and use.

You will be supported by your line manager, who will be available to give advice on all aspects of the position. You will have annual Career Development Reviews as well as two meetings with your line manager during your probation period. You will also be part of a broader team of research coordinators who can provide advice and mentorship. The University has a large programme of personal development and training opportunities, and you will be encouraged to access relevant elements of this programme during your working hours. 

Where Covid-19 has resulted in substantial disruption to your work or research outputs, please explain this by providing an additional paragraph in your supporting statement.

The University of Oxford is committed to equality and valuing diversity.
