Category: Engineering

Job Type: Full-Time

Description:

The Statistics and Data Analytics group works with customers across the company to optimize decision making under uncertainty. Our statisticians work closely with engineering, manufacturing, quality, operations, aftermarket, and finance teams on an incredibly diverse range of projects to bring rigorous statistical analysis to bear in making technical and business decisions using all available data. Examples of projects include designing and analyzing experiments, building hierarchical models from measured data, evaluating significance of engineering and process changes on performance, establishing limits based on observed distributions, and more. Statisticians in our group have the opportunity on a daily basis to apply and develop their skills in nearly every area of statistics.

Qualification:

The ideal candidate is an enthusiastic, self-motivated problem solver who can work effectively within a multi-disciplinary team to frame engineering and business decisions in a statistical context. Effective communication is a must: the chosen candidate will be working with non-statisticians on a daily basis and be expected to explain highly complex concepts and analysis. Demonstrated work experience along these lines is preferred. Selected candidate is expected to have familiarity with statistical and data processing tools (e.g. R, SAS, JMP, Minitab). Experience and interest in engineering is a plus!

Because of the diversity of projects the group sees on a daily basis, the ideal candidate will be both a generalist in all and a specialist in 3 or more of the following areas:

  • Exploratory data analysis

  • Distributions and distribution fitting

  • Linear and non-linear regression

  • Categorical data analysis

  • Generalized linear models

  • Classical design of experiments

  • Hierarchical/multi-level modeling

  • Monte Carlo simulation

  • Bayesian data analysis and Markov chain Monte Carlo

  • Quality control

In addition, knowledge in these areas is desirable:

  • Deterministic model emulation

  • Computer design of experiments

  • Risk analysis

  • Longitudinal data analysis

  • Functional data analysis
