Job Description for a Data Scientist

Looking for a job description for a data scientist but don’t know where to start?

In a recent post I talked about the need to focus on deep mathematics skills when hiring a data scientist, and how that person should also be able to support analysis by, for example, being proficient with R, SAS or SPSS; a great researcher; and a strong communicator. So how do you translate these ideas into to a job description that you can use to advertise for a data scientist? Below I have provided a template of a job description that I’ve used recently with great success to generate large numbers of responses to now filled positions for a portfolio company.
