An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Data Scientist to work within the School of Social and Political Sciences.

In this role you will be responsible for delivering a range of data analysis, management and related services for the Urban Big Data Centre (UBDC). Funded by UKRI-ESRC, UBDC exists to promote innovative research methods and the use of novel forms of data to improve social, economic, and environmental well-being in cities. UBDC delivers analyses with demonstrable impacts on public policy, society and industry and offers essential data infrastructure in support of priority areas including transport, neighbourhoods and housing and education, skills and labour. The successful candidate will be exposed to a range of advanced data science challenges within a leading, globally connected research centre and will have opportunities to shape their own work and professional development programmes. Under the supervision of the Centre’s Senior Data Science Manager, you will work with a variety of data sources for use by a diverse group of researchers and stakeholders.

You will work with Centre staff and affiliates to develop innovative approaches and assist with their research needs, potentially including (but not limited to) data analytics, spatial analytics, statistical programming, machine learning, computer vision, text and social media analytics, and information retrieval/extraction. Your skills will also be needed for setup of systems and services for data access, data integration and record linkage, database management and access, web service development, data curation and cleaning, and related data management and programming services. Given the range and complexity of the data and stakeholders involved, you will be required to be adaptable to learning new methods and technologies, work in both large and small teams, and to develop innovative computational and data management solutions on an as-needed basis.
