Your main tasks will be:
  • Working with scientists and the research execution team to design experiments and analyse data as well as writing study plans and reports and presenting the data at departmental meetings;
  • Developing new methods of data analysis for process characterisation;
  • Using existing data sets to build scientific understanding of the performance of a platform process;
  • Introducing new methods of data analysis (beyond DoE) to the department as the field progresses;
  • Investigating possibilities for using inline analysis of data to improve our processes.

Who we're looking for
The ideal candidate has a B.Sc. in Statistics or Data Analysis with several years of experience or and M.Sc. in Microbiology or Life Sciences with significant experience with statistics and data analysis.
