For our Unit Life/Health we are seeking to appoint a working student starting March/April in Cologne. Initially for 6 month, with the goal of longer-term employment.
The working hours are 19 hours/week with the opportunity to work more during semester break.
Advanced analytics is a broad field with various applications. At Gen Re, we collect data from various sources and in different data formats. We have a team of analysts who are involved in different applications of analytics. In a typical business project, advanced analytics includes an exploration phase to better understand the data as well as the design of analytical experiments to ultimately answer specific business questions. Therefore, it is necessary to experiment with different techniques such as statistical methods (e.g. simulations) and machine learning models (e.g. random forests). Data visualization is another fundamental part of this process, both in the exploration phase and in the interpretation of results.
We are expanding the range of our projects and many interesting tasks are involved.
You will work closely with our Senior Data Scientist on such projects. The goal is to experiment with and implement such tasks over time.
