Position: Data Scientist
Institution: University College London
Department: Sainsbury Wellcome Centre
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The role of the Data Scientist will be to craft the core analysis pipelines which convert raw data into meaningful information, for example, by applying the latest machine learning or statistical tools to analyse or model neural or behavioural data generated in the lab (often, in collaboration with scientists from Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit)
Requirements: This will be a challenging but rewarding role; you must be motivated and pragmatic with the ability to balance and prioritise multiple and concurrent tasks. Strong communication skills and the ability to work effectively within a team are essential. You will be embedded in a fast-paced research environment interacting with end-users who are often highly competent technically; The role will involve the maintenance of our existing high-quality code-bases and developing new software as our experimental questions evolve. Your code will be open, robust, scalable, well-documented and produced in collaboration with both experimentalists and computational neuroscientists, and shareable with the wider research community. Duties may also include the development of new data architectures, allowing for efficient querying and processing of large-scale datasets
