Data Scientist

Date posted: November 1, 2019
Up to £80000 per annum
Cambridgeshire, East
Job description

You will be a problem solver above all else, open to using new technologies and have an R&D mind-set. Strong academics help.

The Requirements

  • MSc or PhD in a quantitative or technical discipline (Computer Science, Maths/Statistics, NatSci, Engineering or similar)
  • Proficiency in Python
  • Understanding of statistical analysis
  • Experience with and ability to use machine learning techniques to achieve a useful and verified outcome (e.g. cost saving)
  • Experience with working on large data sets and data preprocessing/wrangling
  • Familiarity with SQL databases and backend systems is a plus
  • Strong organisational and self-starting skills, happy to work in a team and regularly communicate the results using data visualisation tools if necessary


  • Time-series forecasting (e.g. auto-regressive models)
  • Probabilistic machine learning (e.g. Gaussian processes)
  • Discrete event simulation (e.g. SimPy or pure Python). Experience with simulation in general, even if not discrete event simulation, is considered an advantage.
  • Discrete optimisation (e.g. genetic algorithms, branch & bound, constraint programming), demonstrating capacity to implement customised algorithms (as opposed to using standard, off the shelf methods).

GCS Computer Recruitment Services is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy.
