I have a post available at the moment that would suit someone with good data 
analysis skills and an eye for a challenge! Here's the ad:

Applications are invited for a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow to work on our new 
project entitled: “A multi-dimensional environment-health risk analysis system 
for Kazakhstan”. The project is funded via the British Council Institutional 
Links programme.

We seek applicants holding, or about to attain, a PhD or equivalent level 
qualification in a numerate or environmental science subject. Experience in the 
analysis of large datasets is essential and the application of this skill in an 
environmental science or environmental health context is desirable. The ability 
to take on a cross-disciplinary challenge is also essential.

Your main role will be the application of "Big Data" analytics (e.g. data 
mining, machine learning and statistics) to environment and mortality data to 
uncover relationships at national and regional levels within Kazakhstan. The 
results of this analysis will be used to produce evidence-based recommendations 
to improve environmental health. You will collaborate with the research team in 
Kazakhstan, who will be constructing a database of quality controlled 
historical and new observations of the environment and mortality.

You will contribute to project workshops in the UK and Kazakhstan, present 
results at international conferences and produce manuscripts for publication.

Informal enquires may be addressed to Dr Andrew Russell, e-mail: 
andrew.russell@brunel.ac.uk.
