What you can expect 

Join our Data Science community and shape the future of digitalization in Research and Development. If a system observes its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of success at a given goal we call it Artificial Intelligence (AI).

  • As AI expert, you will create such systems for multiple application areas in materials and systems research as well as process and quality control.
  • You will evaluate new approaches and explore new applications for AI in BASF.
  • You will initiate and execute AI projects in collaboration with research and business units in diverse high performing teams.
  • In these project teams, you will define and develop novel AI solutions and liaise with academic experts and commercial providers.
  • You will communicate and disseminate AI to a broad community of scientists and managers.

What we expect 

  • You have demonstrated that you can build AI systems based on machine learning technology by integrating advanced algorithms with interfaces for observation and action.
  • In contrast to an isolated developer you appreciate and understand experts from all areas of Data Science, including IT, Data Analytics, Data Management, and Project Management.
  • You have a strong background in science or engineering and preferably hold a PhD or equivalent qualification.
  • You gained experience in multiple projects using different IT environments (e.g. Big Data systems like Hadoop and Spark; Machine Learning frameworks like TensorFlow; and programming languages like R or Python).
  • You bring agility, creativity, and entrepreneurial thinking into the team while feeling comfortable in a diverse, interdisciplinary, and challenging environment.

We offer 

  • Responsibility from day one in a challenging work environment and "on-the-job" training as part of a committed team.
  • Support of all employees by using different measures to ensure the balance of professional and private life.
  • Competitive compensation including attractive benefits as well as excellent career opportunities in an international Company.
