I am a theoretical chemist from the Technical University of Denmark near Copenhagen and I recently visited EPCC under the HPC-Europa3 transnational access programme. I was hosted by Dr Adam Kirrander at the University of Edinburgh's School of Chemistry.

EPCC is hiring data scientists

At EPCC we are currently looking to hire both Application Developers and Application Consultants in data science (closing date 22nd of February.) I think this is a really great opportunity for people to become involved in an exciting, fast moving field with great potential and EPCC is a major player in this area.

Our situation in the University makes us fairly unique. We have a diverse mix of both research and commercial projects so it is possible to work on developing the state of the art and also with some big names on work that has a real-world impact. Unlike many technical/research positions at the University, which are short-term Post-Docs, at EPCC our positions are longer term (initially a 2-year fixed-term contract) and many staff have been working at EPCC for several years.
