Your key responsibilities will include:

• Undertaking appropriate data analysis to optimise the design of experimental or computational programmes using appropriate combinations of data science methodologies (data mining, experimental design, analysis, visualisation, modelling etc.), delivering to agreed standards on time and in budget.
• Assuming full leadership responsibility for driving improvement and application of one major area of data science for the benefit of Home Care in Unilever.
• Working closely with internal project teams and leadership to identify further opportunities to apply data science to optimise speed and quality of the innovation programme, and make recommendations on priorities and resourcing.
• Work with project teams and support organisations, to identify and realise opportunities to improve the skills and capabilities of all programme staff to apply basic data science best practice to their own work.
• Work as a member of the data science and informatics community of practice across Unilever to identify commonly applied methods and workflows, and implement them as re-usable tools using the Unilever informatics development platform to agreed standards.
• Working with the e-Science Leader and the support organisations to further build and consolidate Unilever's network of internal and external data science and informatics resources, and use them where needed to deliver Unilever's research programme.

• A degree in a computational, mathematical or physical science (or equivalent).
• A post-graduate qualification and experience of applying data science in a chemical, materials or biological domain.
• A passion for the growth of data science and informatics as a key enabler of successful modern innovation.
• Demonstrably good data science skills across a range of methodologies and a breadth of applications especially including one or more of consumer study, clinical study, chemical ingredient selection, formulation optimisation and process optimisation.
• Highly motivated to identify and realise business impactful applications of these skills rather than pursue in-depth research, but a demonstrated ability to quickly investigate and adapt methodologies for application in different areas will be valued.
• Demonstrably good programming skills, with expertise in applied problem solving using at least two of: Java, C, C++, Perl, Matlab, SQL, pl/SQL, Python, PilotScript or R. Familiarity with a data science workflow development platform (e.g. Pipeline Pilot) would be an advantage.
• A demonstrated ability to acquire new skills, not just new data science methods but also understanding of new domains of application, and their language and descriptors.
• Excellent communication skills - being able to convey complex scientific ideas to a range of audiences (expert, peers, non-expert) by demonstrations, presentations, summarising recommendations, documented detailed analyses and written reports. Strong customer-facing and listening skills to be able to translate scientific requirements clearly and precisely into data science and informatics principles.
