Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics (MPE) is inviting applications for a position of Data Scientist in support of the EU2020 INODE (Intelligent Open Data Exploration) project.
About the project:
- INODE is a Swiss-lead interdisciplinary project with 9 partner institutions in Europe to develop more dialectic and intuitive ways of interacting with large datasets.
- Applications are open for a data scientist (m/f/d) with experience in handling of large astronomic datasets, the formulation of complex queries against these datasets, and software development.
- The candidate will be working on the development of the real-life astronomy use case for INODE by collecting and refining typical query scenarios against these large astronomical datasets.
- The candidate will take a significant responsibility for the aspects of dissemination and training in the project.
- This position will require the candidate’s ability and willingness to travel to EU countries to work with our partners there.
- Candidate must be a scientific programmer with a strong interest in working with large astronomical datasets.
- Applicant must have demonstrated experience in working with at least one – preferably several – large astronomical datasets; understanding of the modern tools and technologies for computational analysis in astronomy
- Good knowledge of software design and programming principles
- Experience of hands-on software design, development documentation and testing
- Experience in database storage system, design and management
- Experience with SQL databases, and the SQL query language
- Knowledge of SPARQL and experience in other EU projects are assets
Starting date: February 2020 (flexible) until the end of the project (October 2022).
