Job Description


  • Develop cutting edge text mining, text analytics and NLP machine learning algorithms and NLP technique. It's especially designed to extract key information from textual data related to specialty chemical industries
  • Create model comparison benchmarks and model selection processes
  • Support the engineers in model optimization and productization
  • Research and develop the NLP techniques to categorise the text data for systematic access and research and summarise the text by natural language processing for a technology group
  • Documentation which clearly explains how algorithms have been implemented, verified and validated.
  • ML/AI in focus for position: NLP techniques entity extraction, topic modeling, named entity recognition document understanding, object detection, computer vision, etc. And unique techniques of lower data text environment

o   Embedding ML/AI in core processes (human decisions enhanced with machine insights)

o   Implement ML models or its combination

o   Creating proprietary ML models where necessary

o   Accelerates training of ML models via implementing phased end-to-end pilot projects in

an agile manner.

o   Progressively test and train ML/AI capabilities to learn and adapt the best model for

Evonik’s problem statements.

o   Develop technical concept with a focus on NLP

  • For prototyping, front and back-end requirements:

o   Understanding of API and interfaces to sub-systems

o   Develop and influence the network infrastructure for innovation projects.

o   Work directly with data (either available data or creating sourcing/suggestion of data

source) to derive actionable insights.


  • Programming skills (Python, C++, shell scripting), Mathematics (Linear Algebra, Calculus, etc); Natural Language Processing (NLP) Techniques ( like Attention mechanism, Transformer, word embedding, tokenization, RNN and so on); NLP Applications (Named Entity Recognition, Text Summarization, Dependency Parsing, etc)
  • PhD degree and/or postdoctoral experience in computer science, engineering, statistics, mathematics, and allied disciplines. (This position opens to fresh PhD graduate)
  • Strong interest in researching and implementing new ML related technologies for NLP
  • Minimum 5 years' hands-on experience in Machine Learning/ Artificial Intelligence projects, preferable to be focused on NLP or Speech Recognition technologies
  • Proven track record of completing multiple data science projects end-to-end; from idea generation, objectives formulation, to implementation
  • Experienced in Text mining and text abstraction with NLP concepts
  • Experience in mentoring junior engineers and setting technical direction related to NLP
  • Demonstrated collaborative leadership skills
