Job Description

I am recruiting for a Data Scientist to be based in Hampshire.

This role is working within the public sector and is inside IR35 so you must work through an umbrella company for the duration of the contract.

You will ideally have a numerical, technical or sociotechnical degree with working knowledge of mathematics and statistics e.g. data science-related, computer science, mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering or a related multidisciplinary technical / sociotechnical subject.

This role is required for someone with experience in Artificial Intelligence techniques for a relevant industry such as the computer games industry, e.g. blended learning and rules based learning, to bring their knowledge and expertise to consider military applications. Examples could include using AI to replace a human commander for military forces in a wargame, or for AI in combat modelling.

This would involve keeping up-to-date with state of the art research, developing knowledge/techniques and contributing new ideas to our research.

Knowledge of AI and learning algorithms for a relevant field such as computer games and simulations/modelling is essential.

Programming in Python, JAVA or other relevant language is also required.

If successful you will be required to undertake SC clearance, if not already cleared.

The deadline for candidate submission is Monday 27/11/17 at 10.30 am.
