Director of the Big Data Institute.
The Nuffield Department of Population Health and the Nuffield Department of Medicine are seeking to appoint a new Director to the University’s Big Data Institute (BDI).
You will work with the BDI’s senior academic team and group leaders to set the research direction of the Institute and to develop agreed and deliver strategic plans which promote and develop the Institute’s academic and scientific themes. The Director provides inspiring and visionary leadership to sustain the world class scientific output of the BDI. You will develop leading BDI-wide partnerships within the University of Oxford, as well as nationally and internationally with academic, governmental, and industrial organisations.
You will already be working at the level of academic distinction that Oxford University would expect of a substantive Professor, leading your own internationally-competitive programme of research for which you will have obtained substantial external grant funding. Your outstanding academic reputation will enable you to develop your own programme of internationally leading research activities in a scientific area that complements or extends the existing strengths that the BDI has in biomedical data science and the quantitative analysis of big data. Evidence of a substantial publication record of well cited original publications in high-profile general scientific journals, or leading subject specific journals is essential.
Informal discussion about the post is encouraged, and prospective applicants should refer to the job description for the named contacts. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
Only applications received by 12.00 midday on Friday 5 January 2023 can be considered.
