BSG would expect you to possess the technical (ICT) and numerical skills to be able to both mine and analyse data from BGS' vast data holdings but also from social media and other organisation's research data (both Open and proprietary). You would have a real opportunity to work with state of the art environmental data from sensor networks including those established as part of the pioneering UK GeoEnergy Observatories Project (UK GEOS) research project which aims to establish world leading knowledge applicable to a wide range of energy technologies and inform Governments future energy policy. You will have a strong background in data analytics, including aspects of data mining, machine learning, aggregation, parallel processing, segmentation, modelling and prediction. You will be able to persuasively advocate the value of these techniques to a range of technical, scientific and non-technical/scientific audiences. You will be able to design new ways of collecting and/or combining data (including spatial) from a variety of sources and understand how to manage this data. You will be able to extract meaning and insight from the data you analyse and/or develop innovative solutions and services from our data holdings. You will be able to communicate this understanding to other BGS highly skilled scientific and technical staff, making the data more widely useable. We are effectively looking for somebody who can effectively tell stories from data that can be communicated to a wide range of audience.
