Digital Humanities Analyst in the Data Analytics Center
The University of Basel is the oldest university in Switzerland, and ranked among the best universities in the world due to its research achievements. It counts over 12'000 students and 4'300 researchers in 7 faculties active in domains from humanities and social sciences to natural sciences. The University of Basel is promoting the growing area of Data Science by establishing a university-wide Data Analytics Center (DAC). The goal of the DAC is the advancement of research and the development of transdisciplinary synergies at the University of Basel and its partners. The service and support activities of the DAC will be provided by the Center for Scientific Computing (sciCORE) and the Digital Humanities Lab (DHLab) in collaboration with the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science (DMI).
We invite applications for a data analysis support specialist (80-100%) to support quantitative research in humanities and social sciences.
The successful candidate will provide consulting and execute data analysis in research projects in various domains of humanities and social sciences. The primary mandate is to support research groups in need of data analysis by applying appropriate statistical, computational, and visualization methods, helping with semantic mappings, and making fundamental methodological advances. The position will involve hands-on data analysis and contributions to teaching (postgraduate courses). This position will be hosted at the DHLab.
Our ideal candidate has a strong and diversified experience (postdoctoral level) in data analysis, in particular with applications involving analysis of large and complex data sets, using machine learning, deep learning, and other advanced statistics. Experience with various database concepts (eg SQL, NoSQL, SPARQL, GraphDB), semantic technologies, and knowledge of R and Python are required. Previous work with text, music, visual, survey, and other data, and familiarity with image analysis tools (eg ImageJ, Fiji) and at least one state of the art deep learning framework will be an asset. Given the important service aspect of the position, we expect our candidate to be flexible, proactive, capable of following several projects in parallel and to have a curiosity for humanities and social sciences in general.
We offer you
At the DHLab, you will be part of a highly efficient and motivated team of diverse data analysts, data infrastructure managers, and scholarly IT specialists. As a member of the DAC you will also join forces with support scientists at sciCORE and DMI. External collaborations and co-authorship in publications can be expected.
