Job Description

Overview

We are researching advanced technologies in the Connected and Automated Vehicle domain. Our team is adding a Data Scientist, who will help us take advantage of in-vehicle, infrastructure­ based, and public data sets to inform and improve our research. You will collaborate with vehicle, transportation and wireless communication experts, global researchers, and academic partners on research projects and real-world trials. Come work with us to make the vehicles and the transportation system of the future safer, more convenient, and more connected!

Job Duties

Work with research team to identify the data requirements, available data source (internal and external such as gee-location specific or social media) and expected outcomes in Connected and Automated Vehicle (CAV) research and experiments

  • Recommend and support data collection, integration and retention requirements by assess the effectiveness and accuracy of data source and data gathering techniques
  • Apply advanced statistical and predictive modeling techniques to validate the findings, build, maintain and improve as iterative approach
  • Coordinate with various teams to implement models
  • Develop experimental design approaches to validate findings or test hypotheses
  • Identify opportunities such as discovering new patterns form large data sets, and find solutions hidden in large data sets to improve the features/applications and find new features/applications
  • Define the validity of data such as how the information is meaningful, and what other information it is related to
  • Ensure the data is in compliance with the regulatory and security policies in place
  • Develop usage and access control policies and systems in collaboration with other data related departments
  • Provide ongoing tracking and monitoring of performance of the statistical models, recommends ongoing improvements to methods and algorithms that lead to findings, including new information
  • Lead the design and deployment of enhancements and fixes to systems as needed
  • Present and depict the rationale of the findings in easy to understand terms to the research team and to the management
  • Educate the team (CAV research and IT department) on new approaches, such as testing hypotheses and statistical validation of results
