Data Scientist for social sciences

In the context of the development of the ACSS institute, PSL university is hiring 1 junior data-scientist. He/she will be responsible for implementing strategies, tools and methods for producing and analyzing data from various sources (Web, institutional databases, archives, etc.). He/she will also be responsible for ensuring compliance with best practices in matter of code and data management. Finally, he/she will contribute to the development of statistical analysis or machine learning algorithms (particularly in the field of natural language processing).

Created by the University Paris Sciences and Letters (PSL) and hosted by Paris-Dauphine, the «Applied Computational Social Sciences» Institute aims to strengthen research on major societal issues (political and social cohesion, ecological transition, digital transformation, economic efficiency and competitiveness) by linking data sciences and social sciences.

The Institute collects and processes heterogeneous data on a large scale both to enable scientific advances and to help inform public dialog and decision-making. It brings together a multidisciplinary team of researchers and relies on a team of engineers in data science who bring their expertise to build original databases and perform sophisticated analysis. These projects are initiated and supported by research units affiliated to the French National Institute for Research (CNRS) and a group of outstanding
research universities. The outcomes of the Institute activities are also featured to reach policymaking and business audiences.

The application form is available at this address: It should include a CV, a cover letter, and a transcript of concluded university degrees. Review of applications will continue until the positions are closed.
