Job Description:

We are seeking a professional like you to join our Data Analytics and Machine Learning community and shape the future of digitalization in Research and Development.  Our group provides data science consultancy, services, and digital products to our partners across the company, focusing on materials and chemicals R&D. Through this, we drive better and faster decision making, efficient experimentation, and accelerated development.

As a data scientist in our team, you will leverage your experience in data analytics to build predictive models of chemicals and materials to drive innovation and data driven solutions throughout North America. You will liaise with colleagues in our various R&D hubs, and initiate data driven projects, connecting experimental data with statistical methods. These projects will be led and implemented by you, showing your expertise in all steps of the predictive modeling process, including exploratory analysis and data mining, machine learning training, reverse engineering through mathematical optimization, and deployment through web apps. These projects will be implemented in languages such as Python and R on local, HPC, and cloud-based platforms. In addition to these machine learning solutions, statistical consulting will also be a primary responsibility, utilizing tools such as statistical inference and design of experiments with software suites such as JMP and Minitab.

An integral part of the team providing statistical services and products is the dissemination of results and approaches to non-statisticians. Therefore, the data scientist is to explain data science solutions to those with limited experience in the field. This will allow for solutions to be sustainable and utilized for years to come.
