Job Description

Packt is presently seeking authors to work with us on writing a range of titles about R, focusing on a variety of different uses of the language including machine learning; and research and data analysis. We have a number of proposals for titles on different topics and so we’re keen and eager to hear from interested parties with a diverse set of specialties.
