This position will have a strong focus on the support of data science and AI-related research projects. The specialist will be responsible for working closely with the other Data Science and Application Specialists and IT staff to provide expert technical advice to university researchers and administrators on data science solutions to problems, for example, as part of advisory committees.
The incumbent will engage with university researchers to understand the requirements of their research problems so that advanced technical expertise, mainly involving data science, can be provided to them.
The Specialist shall work with other Research IT, campus IT, and FSU libraries staff to provide the necessary expertise, including developing software, modifying source code, installing software and developing databases, diagnosing complex software problems, and working with manufacturers as necessary to ensure timely replacement of faulty or out of date hardware and software.
Other responsibilities can be to mentor and train student interns assigned to application support tasks or research projects, for example, through the FSUIntern or UROP initiative. The Specialist may participate in small research projects, either with RCC interns and/or with external research groups.
