JOB SUMMARY: Devise strategies for extracting meaning and value from large datasets. Make and communicate principled conclusions from data using elements of mathematics statistics, computer science, and application[1]specific knowledge. Through analytic modeling statistical analysis programming, and/or another appropriate scientific method develop and implement qualitative and quantitative methods for characterizing, exploring, and assessing large datasets in va1ious states of organization, cleanliness, and structure that account for the unique feature and limitations inherent in NSNCSS data holdings. Translate practical mission needs and analytic questions related to large dataset into technical requirements and, conversely assist others with drawing appropriate c011clusions from the analysis of such data. Effectively •communicate complex technical information to non-technical audiences. Makeinfom1ed recommendations regarding competing technical solutions by maintaining awareness s of the constantly shifting NSNCSS collection processing storage an9 analytic capabilities and limitations.
