The Nuffield Department of Medicine and the Nuffield Department of Population Health are seeking to appoint a new Director to the Big Data Institute (BDI).

You will work with the BDI’s senior academic staff and group leaders to manage the research direction of the Institute and to develop agreed strategic plans which implement the Institute’s academic and scientific aims. 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.  Providing strong 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. You will hold a PhD/DPhil, with 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.
