Recruitment: Teaching Fellow

22 May 2015

A key element in the mission of the Farr Institute is to enhance the UK’s capacity to carry out data-intensive research in health and biomedicine. UCL and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine are partners in the Farr Institute London and are collaborating on a new postgraduate taught programme to train data scientists in healthcare. To help us deliver that programme we are looking to recruit a skilled and enthusiastic teaching fellow to join the team at UCL.

The first students on the Graduate Programme in Data Science for Research in Health & Biomedicine will start in October 2015. They will study a range of subjects in computer science, statistics and epidemiology and acquire the knowledge and practical skills required to design, perform and present research and data analysis projects using large and heterogeneous datasets.

The MSc also includes a substantial research project which will normally be linked with existing work from within the Farr Institute’s growing portfolio of successful research collaborations. Students will be taught by internationally recognised experts from two of the world’s most prestigious institutions in a newly created centre of excellence.

The teaching fellow will take responsibility for at least two taught modules, contribute to teaching and supervision across the rest of the new programme and potentially get involved in other initiatives at the Farr Institute, including the existing Graduate Programme in Health Informatics.
