Type of opportunity:
Data Science is multi-disciplinary field that provides an opportunity to develop a wide range of skills. This new placement offers the chance to help the Statistical Data Sciences (SDS) team to solve real-world business problems and assist in our objective to upskill the wider Biostatistics community in Data Science.
You will primarily work in R, but you will be exposed to multiple programming languages, tools and technologies during this placement. As part of a small but multiskilled team you will work on both large and small projects helping to create tools and applications that will assist statisticians, statistical programmers and scientists in their everyday work. In addition, you will support our Data Science upskill objective by generating training materials, investigating new tools and methods, contributing to our blogs and helping to run the Data Science community.
Further opportunities may include the implementation and evaluation of predictive modelling approaches, including both Statistics and Machine Learning models.
Exposure to the R language and tools such as Git are helpful but much of the required training is provided during the placement. Above all you will need strong communication skills, enjoy writing code and be eager to learn and try new things.
