Overview

We are looking for research assistants to help us with data analysis related to retail waste issues. We are in collaboration with multiple industry partners in the consumer-packaged-goods industry to help them reduce product waste (occurring due to product damage and expiration) at retailers such as supermarkets, drug stores, convenience stores, etc. Applicants must be proficient in R and must have taken basic statistics or machine learning classes. The research assistant will be responsible for merging, consolidating, cleaning data from multiple resources, setting up and conducting regression analysis, presenting results to the principle investigator of the project. This is a good opportunity for those seeking employment in data science, business, data analysis, retail, consumer-packaged-goods, and in consulting.
