Research Data Scientists

Following a significant investment in Data Science and AI skills at the University of Exeter, we are establishing a new team of Research Data Scientists to support expansion of our research and education activities. These appointments are a fantastic opportunity to join the University of Exeter and contribute to the development and delivery of an ambitious agenda using the power of data science and AI for the benefit of society.

As members of the academic community with close ties to Exeter’s Institute of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, Research Data Scientists will collaborate with researchers across the university to design and apply computational approaches to extract knowledge and insight from data, and help solve research problems in an ethical, reliable and reproducible fashion

The new team will initially consist of two Research Data Scientists and a Senior Research Data Scientist, who will join our existing group of Research Software Engineers in supporting cutting-edge research across the university. Given the vital contribution that these roles make to the university’s research portfolio we expect the team to grow quickly, building on the highly successful model of our Research Software Engineering team which has expanded from 4 to 15 roles in three years.

About you

As a Senior Research Data Scientist, you will provide line management and technical mentorship for RDSs within the team. You will play an important role in assisting the Head of Research Software and Analytics to set the strategic direction for the new team, establish and embed good working practises, and build a vibrant pipeline of collaborative research projects to ensure the continued growth and success of the team.

Successful applicants will be talented, versatile professionals with expertise in data science and artificial intelligence, combined with up-to-date skills in data analysis. This experience could have been acquired working in industry or via a PhD degree that required significant use of data science and AI tools. Prior experience of contributing to research projects through collaboration with academic researchers is desirable.

In this role you will address real-world challenges spanning the spectrum of computational and social science and will typically be simultaneously engaged in several research projects. Thus, successful applicants are expected to multi-task and prioritise their own workload. Given the diverse nature of projects, they are also often required to develop expertise in new areas.

About the team

You will join a rapidly growing team of dedicated, friendly and enthusiastic software engineering and data science professionals with a diverse set of interests and backgrounds. We value collaboration, respect and an openness to innovative practises and ways of working. We adopt a flexible, hybrid working style utilising a team space on Streatham Campus with some home working.

The University of Exeter

We are a member of the prestigious Russell Group of research-intensive universities and in the top 200 universities in the world (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2024 and QS World University Ranking 2024).  We combine world-class teaching with world-class research, achieving a Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework Award 2023, underpinned by Gold ratings for Student Experience and Student Outcomes.
