How we can help

Every project is different, so please reach out so that we can find the best way to support your research.

Here are examples of what we can offer:

  • Free 1 day of support from our Ask-JGI “ask a data scientist” service for all staff and doctoral students at the University of Bristol. Supported by our team of postgraduates and supervised by our data scientists.
  • Costed support from data scientists for your project (for example: 1 day per week for 3 months).
  • Extended support by embedding our data scientists into your project or group (for example: 50% FTE for 2 years).
