Position: Data Scientist/Statistician
Institution: Vlaams Instituut voor Biotechnologie
Location: Nevele, Belgium
Duties: We are looking for a skilled data scientist/statistician to support the data analysis and experimental design of our plant growth trials. The job will cover the setup of a generic analysis framework to analyse time series of plant phenotypic data, produced by automated robotic platforms and versatile camera systems. The work also covers experiment-specific statistics of data coming from manual measurements and scientific assays. All raw data will be structured and stored in an in-house data management system, which should also integrate the analysis results. You will develop analysis algorithms, will apply data modelling and the latest analysis approaches to obtain robust results, and will implement the necessary data quality controls
Requirements: You hold a Master in computer sciences, bioscience engineering, bioinformatics, statistics or applied mathematics or equivalent; Proficiency in R and/or python are required; You have strong skills in programming, techniques and methods of statistics, machine learning, data mining and data visualization, and a good understanding of data structures; You have an interest in machine learning approaches; You have a research-minded and solution-oriented attitude, with an interest in plants; You are fluent in English, with good communication skills; You are able to work both independently as well as in a team; You have an eye for detail, work accurately and have a great sense of responsibility
