The Advanced Data Analysis Centre ( at the University of Nottingham has an exciting data analyst post available.

The School of Computer Science and the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science support the Advanced Data Analysis Centre with an existing group of data analysts based between these two schools. The successful applicant will be joining this established, thriving and dynamic data analytical team.

The University of Nottingham has realised the benefit of having in-house data analytical expertise to assist researchers with the aim of improving research quality. The analysts based within ADAC are specialists that assist on a range of projects within the University that range from small proof-of-concept studies with a handful of data points to large national data infrastructure projects such as the UKCRC Tissue Directory and Coordination Centre and the Nottingham Molecular Pathology Node for Integrated Multi-platform Biomarker Research and Knowledge Transfer. In addition to assisting internal research projects the expertise within ADAC has attracted commercial partnerships within financial, advertising, social housing, transportation and retail businesses. Unlike many data analytics services ADAC is aligned with the Intelligent Modelling & Analysis research group (IMA) that is continually seeking new data analytic techniques and algorithms for real-world challenges.
