  • Contributing to reports, expert group meetings and presentations as required​
Required competences and experience:
  • University degree in a science, computer scicence or statistics related subject, or equivalent vocational experience
  • Excellent written and spoken English
  • Excellent knowledge of R, capacity to create, run and debug scripts and packages, but also additional programming skills/languages are highly desirable.
  • Good knowledge of web based interfaces, such as ShinyApps or equivalent.

  • A team player, but capable of working independently with little supervision
  • A high level of computer competence, knowledge of databases and related software tools and services
  • Proactive problem solving and communication
  • Methodical approach, i.e. managing tasks, priorities and responsibilities
