EPCC, the high-performance computing and data centre at the University of Edinburgh, is looking to recruit an Application Developer in Data Science. You’ll work primarily as an analyst/programmer on one or more research-driven projects in the broad area of large-scale distributed data systems.

We consider our staff to be our greatest asset and as such place great emphasis upon continued personal development through a range of projects and a choice of appropriate training, including professional qualifications. Existing programming skills in C/C++, Java or Python, self-motivation, good communication skills and the ability to work productively as part of a team are essential prerequisites. Knowledge of current technology trends in “big data” analytics, data infrastructure and/or research data management is advantageous. This post is immediately available on a two-year, fixed-term contract with the possibility of extension.

This is an exciting opportunity to work with a world leader in advanced computing based at the University of Edinburgh.
