Doctor required

They'll be kicking their heels with joy in the newsroom at New Broadcasting House: whilst redundancy trawls and salary grievances continue unabated, the BBC is a recruiting a Head of Data Science Solutions to work amongst them.

"As Head of Data Science Solutions you will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team to ensure that BBC News's data science products and services are implemented and matured across BBC newsrooms. Working alongside the Head of Audience Engagement you will lead a team of Data Scientists and Analysts to drive the development of the data-led newsroom. You will design and (with engineering resource dedicated to the team) build and deploy software and systems that help journalists attract the widest possible audience for our content and build reach with underserved audiences."

Tasks include "applying advanced statistical and predictive modeling techniques to build, maintain, and improve on multiple real-time decision systems in BBC News." That should sort out the Ten running order.

"PHD degree preferred, OR equivalent experience."
