N8 PRP Recruiting a Research Fellow/Officer in Data Analytics

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a background in Information Management? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research-intensive Universities?

We are seeking to appoint a talented and highly motivated research fellow to join the new N8 Policing Research Partnership Catalyst project entitled ‘Innovation and the Application of Knowledge for More Effective Policing’. This has been established with funding from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and policing partners. The successful candidate will work with the strand of the project that focuses on Data Analytics.

The strand supports the delivery of training, undertakes research and supports collaboration and knowledge exchange between policing colleagues and academics in the area of data science and data analytics.

The aim of the project is to better understand how the N8 police forces are responding to developments in data science. You will draw together practice from across the 11 forces and provide a repository of evidence. It is envisaged that the research will underpin the future work for the data analytics strand and inform policing policy and practice. The work will also be expected to contribute to current scholarly discourse on datafication and critical data research.

You will undertake work with Professor Allen, Dr Nick Malleson and Fiona McLaughlin by undertaking research which supports the development of the DADS and data analytics/ data science in N8 police services.
