For Harper Adams to be a premier provider of higher education for the land based industries, it is essential to have expertise to underpin our provision within this sector. This appointment is a new initiative designed to address the increase in complex research projects undertaken by the University and the opportunities created by the availability and analysis of Big Data within the agriculture and land use sector.

Suitable candidates will have a good first degree in a relevant subject area and a relevant higher degree, typically a PhD. We will also consider applicants with appropriate postgraduate level technical knowledge and expertise relevant to the post. Candidates should have a strong interest in the application of statistical and data analysis techniques to support research within the agriculture and land use sector.

It would be desirable , but not essential, for candidates to have had some direct experience of analysing agricultural data. Applications from individuals with an established academic record demonstrating research experience and a portfolio of publications would be welcome. All candidates should have an active interest in research, teaching and knowledge exchange.

The closing date for this job opportunity has now passed, and applications are no longer being accepted for this position
