Are you a data enthusiast who loves to share their expertise? Want to improve the UK’s capacity to address global challenges such as environmental protection, bio-remediation and resource recovery? We really welcome and encourage applications from people without the listed desirable attributes but who love learning new skills. Empathy for learners and a willingness and demonstrated ability to learn new skills are more important than extensive experience!
We are looking for people enthusiastic about training the UK research and innovation community in data science on a UKRI-funded project called Cloud-SPAN. Cloud-SPAN is a collaboration between the University of York and the Software Sustainability Institute (SSI) which aims to upskill bioscience researchers in the specialised analyses for Cloud-based High Performance Computing.
Working with the project team, you will be responsible for the development and (mainly online) delivery of teaching covering the skills required to generate and analyse omics data using Cloud HPC resources. Our current set of courses can be seen here: https://github.com/Cloud-SPAN. On site or remote working with occasional (~ once every 6 - 8 weeks) visits to the University of York is possible and three of the existing team members work remotely. The role could be carried out by two part-time appointments.
Interview date: To be confirmed
Informal enquiries can be made to Project Lead, Emma Rand (email@example.com) or if you prefer to contact other members of the team, Evelyn Greeves (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jorge Buenabad-Chavez (email@example.com)
The University strives to be diverse and inclusive – a place where we can ALL be ourselves.
We particularly encourage applications from people who identify as Black, Asian or from a Minority Ethnic background, who are underrepresented at the University.
We offer family friendly, flexible working arrangements, with forums and inclusive facilities to support our staff. #EqualityatYork
