PolyChord is a fast growing Cambridge-based data science company (also with a small London office) with unique cutting edge tools, a spinout from the Cambridge University Astrophysics department in 2017. We have recently been awarded an Innovate UK grant and seek to employ a second and third data scientist (eventually) to work in central Cambridge at The Hauser Centre which is part of Ideaspace in the midst of Cambridge's thriving new technology sector. Or now at home given current cirumstances!
We envisage working initially starting on another of our Innovate UK projects and also encompassing other interesting tasks. Physics or Astrophysics would be an ideal subject for prospective candidates; or maths and statistics. We get invited (past tense is understood here however we still Network event virtually) to a lot of Networking events across a wide-ranging span of different applied technologies, including clean and renewable energy, connected and autonomous vehicles, Satellite based Earth Observation; and Life Sciences. Prospective candidates should feel comfortable with (and hopefully enjoy) attending such events, engaging with potential collaborating organisations and helping to explore opportunities - obviously only after a considerable period of initial familiarisation. And when things start getting back to normal again, as everything is zoom calls at the moment.
