Are you a creative thinker who loves to use your Data Science skills to find innovative solutions to interesting challenges?

Do you specialise in Machine Learning, High Performance Computing, or Data Visualisation?


The posts are available immediately until 28 February 2021 and is part of a project, the 'Environmental Futures and Big Data Impact Lab', involving the University of Exeter, University of Plymouth, Met Office, Plymouth Marine Laboratory, Exeter City Futures, Rothamsted Research and Plymouth College of Art. They are funded through the European Regional Development Fund and forms part of the European Strategic Investment Framework for the Heart of the South West.


We are looking for intuitive researchers to use their expertise to support the development of new ideas in the fields of Environmental Futures and Big Data. This is an exciting opportunity to help protect the future of our environment, whilst also working to bring new ideas to life and encourage regional growth in the South West.


You will be part of a highly-skilled team working together to turn research into reality through innovation challenges and idea development. Projects will include: supporting small and medium sized businesses that have an innovative idea but don't have the expertise to execute it alone; working with Impact Lab partners like the Met Office and the Plymouth Marine Laboratory; and working with fellow academics to commercialise existing scientific research. The work will be highly varied, with chances to learn new skills, as well as sharing your specialist knowledge with others.
