Data Scientist Internships x9

Do you have excellent numerical skills, with experience of using statistical or predictive techniques ? Do you have a keen interest in using data science for public good? Do you want to be part of a successful, leading research Institute?

The Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA) is offering 9 internships to help to advance research activity across each of its constituent areas: Artificial Intelligence (AI), health informatics, urban analytics, statistical and mathematical methods, and visualisation and immersive technologies.

The LIDA Internship Programme provides an outstanding opportunity to develop skills that are in high demand within industry and academia, both nationally and globally, within a growing, state-of-the-art facility. Our offer to interns includes the chance to:

- Own delivery of data science project(s) and get hands-on technical experience using real data;

- Establish links with project partners (internal or external) and work to provide solutions to real-world challenges;

- Build skills and knowledge in advanced analytics, not only through mentorship and applied research, but also through on-site training opportunities in statistical analysis, visualisation, research methods and computer programming;

- Work alongside leading scholars as part of the LIDA team and gain valuable work experience.

LIDA is committed to supporting the University's Equality and Inclusion Framework and particularly encourages applications from groups currently under-represented on the Programme and within LIDA. These include women; Black; Asian; Minority Ethnic; and disabled candidates. One internship out of the total 9 is reserved for Black, African, Caribbean or Black British candidates only, at the request of the funder DATA-CAN, as part of the funder's commitment to the HDR UK Black Internship Programme, which aims to encourage the recruitment of black data scientists within the health data science community. For clarity, black applicants are encouraged to apply for any of the internships we currently have on offer on the Programme as well as the reserved internship.

You will be a graduate (Bachelor's, Master's or PhD) in a relevant field and will have excellent numerical skills that may have been gained in the context of quantitative social science, computing, mathematics/statistics, medical bioinformatics or population studies.
