Fixed Term appointment for 12 months

Research Assistant salary: £32,380 to £34,040 per annum

Research Associate salary in the range: £36,800 - £44,220 per annum

We have an exciting opportunity for a Research Assistant/Associate (Software Developer) to work on OPen ALgorithm project (OPAL). This is a joint initiative at Imperial College between the Data Science Institute (DSI) https://www.imperial.ac.uk/data-science and MIT. 
This is a one year position in the first instance, but there may be subsequent PhD opportunities.

The Data Science Institute (DSI) launched in April 2014 as Imperial College’s fifth cross-faculty Institute. The DSI provides a focal point for multidisciplinary data-driven research, supplying technology support for partners, and educating the next generation of data scientists.

The OPAL project aims to develop a secure and transparent data-processing platform allowing large-scale location datasets to be used for good while truly preserving people’s privacy.  For a short overview of the project see: http://www.opalproject.org/closer-look.

The project is developed alongside a set of operational partners (MIT, Orange, Data-Pop) with Imperial leading the technical development of the open-source platform. We aim for the platform to be piloted and installed by our telecommunication partners in Senegal and Colombia ultimately allowing data from more than 8 million people to be analysed anonymously. The first users of the platform are the countries’ national statistical agencies who will test the platform and use the results of OPAL algorithms in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (e.g. real-time population density, inter-city mobility, etc).

The successful candidate must have an excellent software engineering skills and experience with data processing infrastructure. Experience with python, and non-relational databases along with an interest for privacy-preserving technologies is essential. Experience with Node.JS, RESTful APIs, and location data as well as an interest for the use of big data in developing countries is a plus.
