We are looking for a Python focused data analyst and programmer to join our team at the University of Oxford as a Researcher, as we work on solutions to global agricultural sustainability.
The role involves building software capable of validating data describing farms and their sustainability, and building software to automatically provide farmers with benchmarking and advice on how to improve their sustainability. Very little research has been conducted in this area and this work will be at the forefront of efforts to improve the sustainability of the global food system.
You will be part of a motivated team of environmental scientists, software developers, and behaviour change specialists. The project team will be based within the Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science in the Department of Zoology and within the Oxford Martin School.
Support and benefits
Roles at Oxford are inherently flexible, so your working hours can be arranged around caring responsibilities with relative ease. We also welcome requests for more formalised flexible working, such as a reduction in hours.
Perhaps the most enjoyable aspect of working at Oxford is the collegial working environment and interaction you will have with your colleagues from across multiple disciplines.
The Department is committed to providing you with the time and resources needed to develop your career aspirations. 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.
