We need both traditional statisticians and research scientists in Machine Learning with a deep understanding of Stochasticity and Uncertainty. We also need to increase our staff within Image Analysis and Earth Observation.

At NR, we have interesting projects using and developing world-leading algorithms, to get a thorough understanding of technology at the cutting edge of research. You will learn when traditional statistical modelling is preferable and when methods such as Deep Learning are best.

You must be interested in methodological, mission oriented research with client driven applications. We require a master’s degree or Ph.D. in Statistical Modelling, Machine Learning or Image Analysis.

In addition to being a very strong methodologist, you must have advanced programming skills and be interested in new development tools.

Our research scientists have the opportunity to work with many different methods, projects and clients.
