Smart Data Research UK
This is an exciting opportunity to work at the forefront of UK science and technology. UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) is investing £59.3m in Smart Data Research UK (SDR UK) – an ambitious programme to unlock, organise and champion safe access to smart data.
Smart data is made whenever we engage with the digital world – when we buy something, ‘like’ something, or get directions. If used for scientific research, smart data can help us understand important social challenges – from preventing diseases to tackling climate change.
About the role
Smart data offer a powerful opportunity to understand society, improve lives, and sustainably grow our economy. In order to deliver a step change in the use of such data, SDR UK must safeguard public trust and navigate both day-to-day legal complexities and the dynamics of the international data policy landscape.
ESRC is seeking a Senior Data Policy Manager to manage internal and external facing policy concerns for the programme. In this role, you will enable us to provide leadership and coordination across the programme on matters pertaining to ethics and responsible data governance, and you will help our leadership team stay informed about emerging policy issues.
You will engage with national and international data policy developments, keeping the team informed of key issues and connected to relevant conversations. You will also manage the provision of cross-programme data governance and ethical and legal support, including, where relevant, scoping and commissioning external advice and services.
This is not a comprehensive list, and we may require you to undertake other duties within the Strategic Hub commensurate with the level of responsibility of this post.
