Opportunity: Data Mining & Eco-Informatics (#1282) @ Rothamsted Research -- Harpenden, UK
Submitted by Chris Rawlings; posted on Thursday, August 29, 2013
BACKGROUND:
The North Wyke Farm Platform (NWFP) at Rothamsted Research is a new experimental platform. This globally unique facility uses recent advances in technology to capture real-time datasets on the hydrology, soil and water chemistry from hydrologically isolated fields. These data, in addition to information being collected on animal production, farm management and economics will develop a better understanding of the dynamic processes and underlying mechanisms that can be used to model how agricultural grassland systems will respond to management inputs.

In order to maximise the research potential of this facility and the data it is generating, we wish to appoint a senior scientist who will lead an eco-informatics research programme to make novel discoveries from these exciting new datasets.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
Based at North Wyke, the person appointed would be expected to interact closely with colleagues in Rothamsted North Wyke and Harpenden and to take the lead on the development of new software and data resources that would demonstrate the research potential of the Farm Platform and encourage new collaborations. They would also be expected to contribute to other eco-informatics projects at Rothamsted Research.

REQUIREMENTS:
The successful candidate will have:
* A PhD in quantitative ecology -- or in Computer Science / Applied Statistics with experience of working with ecological or hydrological data
* Experience with multivariate statistics and the application of statistical or other methods of machine learning/knowledge discovery from databases
* Research experience working in ecology or hydrology or a related area
* Established research record & publications demonstrating ability to work with large and complex datasets to extract new knowledge
* Ability to present complex systems/discovery in an accessible manner to biologists.

PREFERENCES:
In addition you will possess the following skills:
