The Global Health Network Data Project Coordinator

NDM Research Building, Old Road Campus, Oxford
Grade 6: £26,527 - £31,644 p.a.

The Global Health Network is an international, collaborative research-led initiative to enhance and support medical research in low and middle-income countries. It achieves this through a collection of online research communities located together on a shared digital hub. This platform is comprised of specific disease areas, cross-cutting research support topics and free research tools. We are looking for a Big Data Project Coordinator to coordinate our proof-of-concept work relating to using data analysis tools such as SPLUNK to access, mine and analyse ‘machine’ datasets. These data sets can then be used by public, health and research organisations to improve health care delivery in resource-constrained settings.

You will work on the three key project aims; exploring the uses of SPLUNK software and technology to mine unstructured diagnostic machine data, work on data storage solutions which meet practical, legal, ethical and data protection requirements and making such mined data available to others via open access platforms such as the Global Health Network. Overseas travel will be required and you will work closely within our team based in Oxford.

You will hold a PhD in an appropriate subject area and have experience in computer programming (especially with relational or, preferably, NoSQL databases) and with data mining and/or statistical analysis. You will be able to demonstrate strong organisational and project management skills.

This post is available for 1 year in the first instance.

Only applicants received before 12.00 midday on Friday 9 May 2014 will be considered.
