Re: Vacancy: Senior Research Fellow in Data Science for Changing Cities; deadline 8th Jan 2023

Dear Shams,

A PhD is required  as the hope is that they would go on to a Lecturer role.   Experience in statistics is required, and we need to see evidence of this, preferably as published journal papers.   Experience in sanitation is not required, simply a willingness to learn!

Dear Dr. Alison Parker

Thank you very much for sharing this opportunity. However, I am wondering about the degree requirements for this position? A statistician is required or Environment related graduate with experiences in using statistical tools. 

Thanks once again
