  • Excellent knowledge of statistical methods and scientific rigour;
  • In-depth and practical data-oriented skills including curation of diverse datasets (telemetric, visual and clinical data are all relevant); and
  • Experience as a data scientist, working with realistic, diverse data and fully-fledged systems to ask and answer real-world questions – this may be commercial, or may have been for research, but in any case this will have been expansive and pragmatic work with practical results

And several of:

  • Proficiency with Python (or equivalent) and libraries including / comparable to NumPy, SciPy, Pandas, Tensorflow and PyTorch
  • Applied machine learning for data science: SVMs, deep learning, supervised learning and reinforcement learning
  • Applied knowledge of Bayesian techniques
