Data Scientist for the GOSH Digital Research Environment (DRE)
GOSH is at the forefront of using new and innovative technologies in the clinical treatment of patients and a Research and Innovation Platform was seen as essential to support the Trust’s role nationally and internationally as a Biomedical Research Centre.
The Trust has implemented and deployed the Aridhia Research and Innovation Platform (research platform) to provide a rich source of data for audit, research and operations and allow us to keep pace with our peers regarding recruitment to clinical trials. The research platform forms the core of the Trust’s Digital Research Environment (DRE) and will enable GOSH to capitalise on future digital developments such as artificial intelligence and advanced clinical decision support, underpinning research studies and improving Trust operational processes for many years to come.
The Data Scientist will be a member of the DRE Team with a primary focus on further optimisation and enhancements of the research platform and overall DRE for data analytics in research, clinical audits and operational projects, as well as undertaking data science projects and supporting users with data analytics. The role will also support the implementation of associated data analytics systems.
We are seeking a team player with a flexible approach to work who wishes to join us at this truly exciting time as we embark on the next phase of GOSH’s ambitious digital transformation programme. The successful applicant will ideally have experience of setting up and managing data science capability and an excellent knowledge of advanced data science methods.
