The University of Oxford is a stimulating work environment, which enjoys an international reputation as a world-class centre of excellence. Our research plays a key role in tackling many global challenges, from reducing our carbon emissions to developing vaccines during a pandemic.


The Student Data Management & Analysis (SDMA) team provides a portfolio of data, reporting and statistical services for the University of Oxford. In addition to maintaining and facilitating access to reporting datasets on Oxford students and undergraduate applicants, the team also leads on developing the strategy for and facilitating delivery of university-wide student surveys.

This role is located within the statistical services team with responsibilities split between student surveys and statistical analysis projects. On the surveys side, you will be the lead for the University's centrally managed surveys and will manage the contributions from other teams that play an important role in surveys. On the statistical analysis side, you will provide statistical support to other departments and divisions, designing and delivering statistical research in the area of student data analysis aligned with the University's strategic priorities.

What We Offer

As an employer, we genuinely care about our employees' wellbeing and this is reflected in the range of benefits that we offer including:

• An excellent contributory pension scheme

• 38 days annual leave

• A comprehensive range of childcare services

• Family leave schemes

• Cycle loan scheme

• Discounted bus travel and Season Ticket travel loans

• Membership to a variety of social and sports clubs

This role also offers the opportunity for hybrid working.

For the right candidate we would consider underfilling the role as a grade 7 Student Survey and Data Analyst (£36,024-£44,263 per annum) with an appropriate reduction in duties.

About the Role

As a Student Survey and Data Analyst, your role will be split approximately 50:50 between student surveys and statistical analysis projects.

On the surveys side, you will lead on the University's centrally managed surveys where you will be responsible for:

• producing analysis of survey results in the form of committee papers, headline reports and dashboards

• engaging with stakeholders to understand their needs and ensuring that reporting is useful and accessible

• making recommendations to the Student Survey Operations and Strategy Groups regarding the feasibility, design, and set-up of surveys

• using the University's recommended survey tools to build and administer surveys

• acting as an expert on student surveys and survey design, providing best practice, advice and support as needed to colleagues who are running their own surveys

You will also provide statistical support to departments and divisions, and design and deliver statistical research and analysis aligned with the University's strategic priorities. You will work with a degree of independence, liaising directly with senior colleagues to establish research questions, agree appropriate methodologies and communicate findings clearly, accessibly and persuasively. You will also work closely with colleagues in SDMA to ensure that findings from statistical research are informing the wider provision of data analysis and reporting.

About You

We are looking for candidates with significant experience of surveys including quantitative analysis of responses. You must have a good understanding of statistical methods and extensive experience with relevant software such as SPSS, R, or Python. You should be a confident and effective communicator, able to engage with stakeholders at all levels who may posess different levels of statistical expertise. We would expect you to be able to work with a high degree of independence as well as in collaboration with stakeholders from across the University.

Application Process

You will be required to upload a covering letter/supporting statement, CV and the details of two referees as part of your online application. Please also submit evidence of your experience with a statistical software or programming language of choice (e.g. SPSS, R, Python), such as a 2-page code extract dealing with data manipulation, descriptive or statistical analyses. The code does not need to be self-contained (i.e. an extract from an existing longer file is acceptable), and please do not send data files or use AI tools for this task.

The closing date for applications is 12noon on 15 July 2024.

Interviews will take place during week commencing 29 July 2024 and will be held in person
