Data Scientist DETAILS APPLY FOR THIS POSITION >

BluePath is recruiting for a Data Scientist to reverse engineer health economic models and optimize them for use on a web platform. You will also serve as an advisor on modeling techniques and data structures. As a Data Scientist, knowledge of common modeling techniques (regression, simulations, clustering) is expected, along with direct work experience with some of these methods. A critical component of this role will involve turning existing models and results into intuitive and informative user interfaces. To this aim, the Data Scientist will work closely with our front-end developers and value communication team.

The ideal candidate will have several years of programming experience along with a strong knowledge of Excel. You should feel confident in deconstructing a completed model or data pipeline and understanding the underlying calculations and logical flow; bonus points if you can construct one of these models from scratch.

Aside from the technical skills, the candidate must be able to perform adequately under tight deadlines and work well within a team.

Our goal is to provide bespoke, dynamic, meaningful, and robust analyses that meet the client’s needs. To meet this goal, we develop highly branded and customized tools for our clients’ internal and external use. The models are often disseminated via peer-review publications, conferences, or field tools. Regardless of the method of dissemination, the models eventually make a difference in getting patients access to new therapies.

The essential responsibilities will include but are not limited to:

  • Transform existing models into polished client-facing products, typically for web use

  • Aid in running analyses and preparing results for dissemination
