  • Participate in developing new analytical approaches and techniques, working with an outstanding knowledge structure and international network of experts to both codify existing knowledge and expand new knowledge streams.
  • Work on projects and exchange experiences with your colleagues which means you will face new intellectual challenges daily, while continuously building your methodological knowledge and skills, as well as your strategic consultancy toolkit

  • Experience in one of the following machine learning / AI areas: e.g., natural language processing, deep learning, anomaly detection, graph-based techniques; would be a plus  
  • Ability to work collaboratively in a team environment and effectively with people at all levels in an organization
