The heart of the Skills Development group is our team of eResearch Analysts — research support professionals embedded within our Member institutions.
Our eResearch Analyst team has a wealth of experience in data-intensive research and research computing support. All are dedicated to helping our Members’ staff and students make the best use of technology to improve their research outcomes.
The eResearch Analysts provide mentoring, coaching and training to researchers from their host institutions. They each have a broad range of skills to achieve this, along with the capability to call on the knowledge of the whole Skills Development team and the rest of QCIF when this can deliver a better outcome for the researcher.
QCIF’s eResearch Analysts work alongside institutional colleagues in research computing, libraries and IT. In this way, they are fully informed to advise researchers on the most appropriate resources available, be they within their host institution, through QCIF, or through national schemes.
