Data Scientist Health

What you will do

We are looking for a Data Scientist Health to expand our OnePlanet team in Wageningen, Gelderland. You will be responsible for translating state-of-the-art data analytics into a machine learning pipeline to extract new parameters and markers for health conditions. As a Senior Data Scientist, you will work on huge data sets that are gathered by our OnePlanet partners from Wageningen University or Radboud University. You will be part of a world class multidisciplinary team working on completely new solutions for the Precision Health, Nutrition and Behavior domain of OnePlanet Research Center.
In this position you will:

  • Design and deploy a data flow architecture and a machine learning pipeline for the data-driven health program of OnePlanet.
  • Translate state-of-the art data analytics and machine learning techniques into algorithms and solutions to extract new parameters and markers for specific health conditions.
  • Collect, organize, and structure data of existing datasets (for example on digital twins).
  • Take lead in the interaction with customers and stakeholders to define the features and parameters of interest for selected application domains.
  • Generate insights and develop data driven models from multi-sensor data streams and heterogenous physiological related data.
  • Analyze large physiological data sets to find meaningful personalized health parameters. Optimize the computational constraints of the learning algorithms, validate results in real-life and/or (clinical) studies.
  • Create machine learning pipelines in a cloud computing environment.
  • Present and communicate research results and interpretation to internal and external stakeholder.
  • Give direction to other data scientists (as the Data Science team will be expanded in the future).
