We are currently looking for two Junior Statisticians/Programmers to join our Data Analysis team and provide statistical support across a variety of market research projects. We help clients make very important decisions about major food, drink and personal care brands by analysing the results of surveys we run.
Both candidates must be fluent in both written and spoken English. One candidate must be fluent in both written and spoken Mandarin and be happy to work and learn in our UK office for about one year before moving to our Shanghai office to continue working and training.
The role is extremely varied, interesting and challenging, utilising a wide range of statistical and mathematical tools ranging from the basics (t-test and chi-squared) through to linear and non-linear modelling, multivariate techniques and analysis of variance. There are also a lot of opportunities to program new techniques in SAS, Visual Basic etc. so if you can demonstrate strong programming skills in any programming language that will be extremely beneficial.
You will work as part of a strong team and be involved from project inception (possibly contributing ideas to research design and how the data is collected) right through to analysing the results and offering insight from a statistical perspective on the trends observed in the data.

We work for many of the world's leading food, drink and personal care brands - please visit www.mmr-research.com to find out more.

We offer a competitive salary £20k to £24k depending on knowledge, skill set and excellent benefits package, including pension scheme, private healthcare and modern, flexible working practices, as well as the opportunity for exciting career progression. Holiday allowance starts at 23 days and rises to 28 days with service.
Candidates will have either an MSc in Statistics/Biometry or a BSc which includes a minimum of 75% statistics (2:1 or above). You will have experience of a variety of statistical techniques, preferably including multivariate analysis, experimental design and statistical modelling. You will also be highly computer literate with skills in Excel and statistical software (ideally SAS) and have good time management and communication skills.
