The University of Nottingham’s Digital Research Service (DRS) is a dedicated, core facility of Research Software Engineers (RSE) that supports the entire research community in Nottingham by providing expertise and capabilities in the areas of Data Analytics/Data Science, Bioinformatics and Software Development (including High Performance Computing). Our team of 25 interdisciplinary experts make the DRS one of the UK’s largest RSE groups.

 The DRS has a proven track record of enabling, improving and impacting research on projects ranging from small proof ­of ­concept studies with a handful of data points to large national data infrastructure projects such as the UKCRC Tissue Directory and Coordination Centre and COCONNECT. Over the course of the academic year 2021/2022, the DRS team have successfully completed over 60 projects from a wide range of research domains, including research projects in collaboration with industry partners. Furthermore, the expertise within the DRS has attracted commercial partnerships with the NHS, local government, and businesses in finance, advertising, social housing, transportation and retail.

 The DRS offers unrivalled exposure to commercial and research projects from different domains, allowing team members to acquire a diverse set of project experience in a relatively short amount of time.

 The successful candidate for this role will join a high-performing team of experts in a nationally recognised facility to provide bespoke, project-based support to improve the quality of research at the University of Nottingham. We are looking for an individual that can perform in a high-paced environment and consistently deliver on multiple projects and deadlines in parallel. The ability to adapt approaches for technical solutions, as well as the dissemination and communication of results for each project to suit the particular needs of the research domain is also key for this role.

 We are looking for a candidate with experience in Data Science, including advanced statistics, database systems, machine learning and basic understanding of software engineering agile methodologies. Knowledge of Python, R or Matlab is essential for the role.

 This position is offered on a fixed term basis for 12 months. Hours are part-time (20 hours per week).
