We can offer you this great challenge:

Job Purpose:

The main responsibility of the Senior Data Mining and Statistical Research Scientist is to design and develop mathematical and/or statistical models and software using predictive algorithms to support company multimodal diagnostic tools development. In addition, the Senior Data Mining and Statistical Research Specialist will carry out the technical work of conducting statistical research.

Under the supervision of experienced colleagues, the main responsibilities of the Junior Data Mining and Statistical Research Specialist are to support customers data analysis in customer-oriented mindset and depending on the seniority and expertise, to develop mathematical approaches to support Company predictive mathematical Solutions, and to design related softwares. 

Your key responsibilities as Senior:

Analyse, design, develop, support and maintain mathematical and/or statistical models for algorithm prediction.  

Identify opportunities for innovation and to support further software development as well as the conception and programming of innovative statistical approaches across the development portfolio by interacting with other statisticians and scientists.

The function includes, but is not limited to: 

  • Evaluation of alternative or innovative approaches to statistical methods,
  • Further development of methodology in relation with algorithms/prediction (using data mining, Bayesian modelling), 
  • Development of algorithms models and statistical analysis of clinical data,
  • Analysis and interpretation of data in collaboration with other staff members, 
  • Liaise with the customers to define data transfer, then process data and conduct analysis and reporting according to standard operating procedures,
  • Participation in study related document writing,
  • Communication about research and findings to technical and non-technical audiences inside and outside the research team (congresses, health authorities, …) 
  • Mentoring junior colleagues,

Your key responsibilities as Junior:

Conduct client data analysis and reporting under supervision of more senior staff. Depending on the seniority and level of autonomy, contribute/analyse, design, develop, support and maintain mathematical and/or statistical models for algorithm prediction according to guidance and instructions.
