Environmental Data Scientist

What you will do

We are looking for an Environmental Data Scientist at our OnePlanet Research Center in Wageningen and Nijmegen, Netherlands. You will work in a diverse and multidisciplinary team of electronic, environmental, biomedical, and biochemical system engineers, as well as data scientists, chemists, and biologists, researching and developing innovative solutions for environmental sensing and agriculture. Your activities will include initializing and performing data science pipelines for environmental sensing, as well as designing and developing machine learning, statistical, or other computational models to process raw data from OnePlanet’s novel sensor technology into intelligent insights.
Your main responsibilities involve: 

  • Develop, test, and deploy machine learning pipelines in a cloud computing environment (Azure).
  • Collect, clean, and curate existing and new datasets.
  • Design and develop data-driven approaches to calibrate sensing networks and preventively maintain them.
  • Build and maintain (Git) repositories of efficient, reusable, and reliable scientific code.
  • Promote and coach appropriate software engineering techniques and practices among OnePlanet’s scientific developers to further grow our code base.
  • Keep an up-to-date overview of novel machine learning approaches. Identify the ones that should be used and/or further researched and developed for OnePlanet’s activities.
  • Optimize algorithms to tackle computational constraints in machine learning pipelines. Validate the results in field studies.
  • Actively advise and take part in the experimental design and execution of studies and data collection campaigns aimed at validating models. Improve digital data pipelines and overall project chain in collaboration with the team.
  • Regularly communicate both the achievements and the challenges you face to the team, receiving and providing feedback.
  • Proactively prepare and publish selected OnePlanet’s research in scientific articles and conferences. 

What we do for you

We offer an energetic and international environment at the forefront of technology, in a network of renowned industrial customers. This is your opportunity to bring new technologies to the market and to make an impact on tomorrow’s society.  

OnePlanet Research Center is a multidisciplinary collaboration agreement between Wageningen University & Research (WUR), Radboud University, Radboudumc and imec. Imec Nederland, as an employer of choice, offers you an attractive compensation and benefits package including a 100% employer paid pension plan and flexible working hours.

By joining the OnePlanet team, you will be part of a team of world changers, disruptive innovators, and practical thinkers. Here, your ideas will make an impact on our future lives.

Who you are

You are a data scientist with the following experience, skills, and background:

  • Ph.D. (or MSc degree with 3+ years of experience) in Environmental Science, Earth Science, Chemistry, Robotics, Electrical or Electronic Engineering, Computer Science, or Applied Mathematics.
  • Hands-on experience with machine learning and/or data engineering on time series data is a must.
  • Solid experience with Python is a must.
  • Experience with Git for version control and for developing reusable code.
  • Knowledge of MATLAB, R, or C++ is a plus.
  • Experience with (chemical sensors) signal processing and algorithm development.
  • Experience with working on environmental datasets is a big plus.
  • Proven experience in data projects deployed at production level is a big plus.
  • Experience in machine learning techniques for sensor networks is a big plus.
  • Able to deal with ambiguity in an uncertain research process. You see change as an opportunity to learn and grow, and you adapt the research course considering boundary conditions and resources at hand.
  • Hands-on attitude, which means you take initiative, think proactively, have a flexible attitude, and enjoy solving problems.
  • Team player with good communication skills and the ability to give quality feedback.
  • Excellent English language skills (written and spoken).
