Grade 6: £29,176 - £34,804 p.a.

Closing date

Oct 22, 2020 12:00PM


We are currently recruiting a Data Wrangler/Scientist to join the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at the Department of Engineering Science (Headington).  This full-time post is funded by the CRUK and is fixed-term up to 30 September 2021.

The post will be responsible for the development of a high-quality endoscopy video data lake in the Big Data Institute, consisting of de-identified endoscopy videos and associated clinical data from the Endoscopy Suite at the John Radcliffe Hospital. This data will be accessed by the researchers for further analysis. In order to do this task, you will work closely with OUH IT to install and validate the appropriate software to enable de-identification, video data export and secure transfer to the data lake, and integration with clinical data.  The post will be based at Big Data Institute, at the Old Road Campus in Oxford. But it is expected that the post holder will split their time between the NHS Endoscopy Suite at the John Radcliffe Hospital and the Big Data Institute.

You should possess a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or a related discipline, and have experience working with confidential data.  You should also have sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline to work within established research programmes and the ability to drive collaborations with clinical and research users.  Practical experience of software engineering principles, tools and techniques, including prior knowledge of programming (Python, Java, JSON, SQL, C#) and server-based computing is also essential.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Prof. Jens Rittscher (
