Our client, a multi-billion dollar global leader in thermal technology, has asked us to provide them with a research oriented data scientist who also has a strong background in human anatomy/physiology. Your work in the area of human thermoregulation will help guide research projects that result in the development of a variety of thermal comfort systems, particularly things like heated seats, for the automotive industry. The work that you do will have a high level of impact, as the systems you help design will find their way into millions of vehicles. Furthermore, you’ll have lots of flexibility to develop, explore, and research your own ideas and will be encouraged to publish your findings.

Do you have expertise in both physiology and data analysis? Interested in a position with global impact? If so, please submit your resume and fill out our questionnaire ASAP!   

THE WORK:  The work includes: 

  • Designing and overseeing experiments and research projects that will provide new insight into the field of thermal-physiology
  • Providing advanced statistical analysis of experiment results
  • Leveraging a variety of data science and statistical tools 

This is a scientist / research position, not an engineering role. This client will not consider candidates who have strong engineering backgrounds but do not have experience in designing, executing, and analyzing the results of experiments.

The chosen consultant will be working on a highly skilled team with some of the latest technologies.   

LOCATION: This client is located near the heart of Detroit, Michigan. In case you haven’t heard, the Detroit area is experiencing a new renaissance of technology, food, arts, and culture. Building on its storied history as the “Motor City”, Detroit is now reinventing itself as a home for a vibrant community of well-funded startups with all the amenities demanded by a sharp, urban crowd. 

With its constant offering of music and theatre performances, several of the nation’s best known museums, a trio of new major league sports arenas (and teams that occasionally win), and distinct neighborhoods of every flavor, the Detroit region truly has something for everyone! 


MODE: This is a permanent, full-time role.

This company will consider recent PhD graduates so long as their coursework directly relates to physiology and data science or statistics.

This company will provide visa sponsorships for uniquely qualified candidates.

REQUIRED: Applicants must have:

  • A strong background in physiology, anatomy, human biology, kinesiology, or a similar field
  • A strong understanding of thermoregulation in humans
  • A strong understanding of data science tools and methodologies - particularly time series analysis
  • Experience designing and leading research projects
  • Experience in research studies working with human subjects
  • Experience with a variety of statistical tools  

DESIRED: In addition, it would be great if you had some background in thermodynamics or thermophysiology. 

COMPENSATION: Because this client will consider both experienced candidates as well as recent PhD graduates, compensation will be highly dependent on individual qualifications and experience. Compensation includes a bonus package equal to 8% of base salary as well as a strong benefits plan.

INTERESTED? If you're interested and have the skills, we'd love to hear from you. Please answer our questionnaire and submit your resume right away! Thanks!
