As a result of its success in securing renewed funding, the Urban Big Data Centre at the University of Glasgow is seeking to appoint three data scientists with superb analytical minds to deliver a range of data services.
Funded by UKRI-ESRC, UBDC exists to promote innovative research methods and the use of novel forms of data to improve social, economic, and environmental well-being in cities. UBDC delivers analyses with demonstrable impacts on public policy, society and industry and offers essential data infrastructure in support of priority areas including transport, neighbourhoods and housing and education, skills and labour.
Successful candidates will be exposed to a range of advanced data science challenges within a leading, globally connected research centre and will have opportunities to shape their own work and professional development programmes.
The Centre is looking for creative, adaptable and self-motivated individuals with specialisms in areas including spatial data analysis and management, text and image data processing, machine learning and statistical programming. Independent of specific technical skills, successful candidates will be those that best demonstrate their qualities of curiosity, creative problem solving and communication.
