The farm operation has recently been restructured and there is a renewed focus on technology and data driven agriculture. This is referred to as the Harper Adams Future Farm. Harper Adams University is also home to the pioneering Hands Free Farm and also the Agri-EPI Centre Midlands Innovation Hub, where industry and practitioners are working together on the latest precision technology for sustainable arable and livestock systems.

This role is a career-enhancing opportunity to for a suitably qualified and experienced individual with a strong interest in applied data science to join our friendly team within the Agriculture and Environment Department.

Some of this delivery will be at our site at Station Quarter, Telford, which is currently under development (https://www.harper-adams.ac.uk/news/210055/new-facilities-highlight-innovation-growth-across-telford-and-wrekin) to support BSc Applied Data Science. The new undergraduate provision complements the post graduate offering of MSc Data Science for Global Agriculture, Food and Environment.

Candidates should have an interest and track record in applied data science and aim to pursue research and knowledge exchange activities in this area. The postholder will also be encouraged and supported to develop a successful research programme dependent on personal interest and the University Strategy. There is also opportunity to provide consultancy on behalf of the University and to deliver online and short courses to the sector. There is freedom within the role to develop interests and to work with other organisations and partners of relevance. Applications from individuals with an established academic record demonstrating research experience and a portfolio of publications would be an advantage.
