Data Researcher/Information Designer Call

LSE Cities is looking for a Data Researcher/Information Designer to work on compiling and developing Urban Age analytics for an upcoming publication. Urban Age has delivered two books in the series – Endless City and Living in the Endless City – and is developing a third book. The successful candidate would be required to create data visualisations using global and city data that has already been collected, as well as find and prepare new data on cities to contribute to the ongoing Urban Age work.

The successful candidate will work directly with the Urban Age publication coordinator and will need to have strong and demonstrable data collection, analysis and visualisation skills, and be highly proficient in the Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop). Previous experience in data visualisation is required and it is important that the candidate has strong attention to detail, be self-directed and work well as part of a team, works efficiently to meet deadlines, be flexible and a creative thinker.  Experience in GIS would be highly beneficial.

This is a fixed term hourly-paid position (at present until end of October 2017), ideally full-time although there can be some flexibility depending on a candidate's availability.  The role is offered at an hourly rate of between £18.35 - £21.24 (including holiday pay), depending on experience.

Candidates should be able to start work as soon as possible in August 2017.

If you are interested, please send a CV, short work sample and a short covering statement to lse.cities@lse.ac.uk
