The Animal and Plant Health Agency now has a vacancy for a Higher Scientific Officer grade GIS Analyst within our Data Systems Group.
The Data systems Group sits within the Department of Epidemiology and contributes technical input to a broad range of research projects, alongside work supporting operational delivery.
The role will be primarily focused on supporting scientific projects - and there is huge scope for development within the role. The ability to actively engage with stakeholders and discuss/suggest the use of spatial analysis techniques will be useful. We have access to a wide range of data relating to animal health, and access to powerful tools including ArcGIS Enterprise and our Scientific Computing Environment. Within the team we have a mixture of GIS staff, SQL and .net developers, web developers and database managers, with the potential for collaboration and development of skills relating to GIS, data science, data management and programming.
