POSTED 25th Mar, 2020 REF NO. BBBH10913
APS Data Scientist/Statistician
This federal government department develops and implements policies and programs to ensure the competiveness, profitability and sustainability of a broad range of Australian industries. The branch you will be operating in is research focused and you will be surrounded with like minded individuals who are keen to investigate data.
This is a unique opportunity for you to work within the research arm of our client’s department. It is a chance for you to make the jump from academia or commercial roles, or extend your existing APS career. The EL2 leading the team wrote the model you will be working on and will be able to assist you with any questions you may have when you start. The team enjoys having a chat especially about anything in the ‘nerdy’ domain.
This role is for an initial 6 month period with a strong likelihood for extension. You will be focusing on the maintenance of the existing model as well as developing new apps and extensions. The model is integral to a broad range of research that depends on the integrity and interpretation of the data.
Your day to day duties will include:
- Data modeling and maintenance
- Development of extensions and applications for the use of end users
- Generating publication ready tables and data visualisations.
As our client is a federal government department you must be an Australian citizen to apply.
Ideally, you will have a strong academic background in data science, statistics or economics. You will bring your strong R and python coding skills to contribute to the app development aspect of the role and your version control and organisation are top notch. You are a self-motivated person who is comfortable working without a lot of oversight and are happy to collaborate with your team, however you won’t be required to present to stakeholders. Any previous research or experience in the agriculture industry will be highly regarded.
$55 – $65 per hour + Super depending on your skills and experience.
