SierTek Ltd. is seeking Data Scientist / Data Visualization Specialist to support an opportunity at Wright Patterson AFB, in Dayton, Ohio (On-Site or Remote)
The 711th Human Performance Wing (711 HPW), headquartered at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, is the first human-centric warfare wing to consolidate human performance research, education, and consultation under a single organization. Established under the Air Force Research Laboratory, the 711 HPW is comprised of the Airman Systems Directorate (RH), and the United States Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine (USAFSAM)). The Wing delivers unparalleled capability to the Air Force through a combination of world class infrastructure and expertise of its diverse workforce of military, civilian and contractor personnel encompassing 75 occupational specialties including science and engineering, occupational health and safety, medical professions, technicians, educators, and business operations and support.
This effort will be part of a continuing partnership between the USAF School of Aerospace Medicine (USAFSAM), the Air Force Medical Readiness Agency (AFMRA), and the Defense Health Agency (DHA). It focuses on developmental work to transform numerous sources of Public Health data into concise and flexible visualizations to assist senior DoD leaders and Public Health (PH) Subject Matter Experts in identifying, prioritizing, and resolving gaps in data quality and program performance and reducing risk to human health.
The scope of this effort is to design and build multiple data processing workflows and visualizations, fed by numerous data sources and types, to enable optimal analysis and communication of Public Health program quality and performance. Products will be distributed and used by Aerospace and Operational Medicine Enterprise (AOME) teams at DoD installations worldwide, by higher headquarters personnel, and by supported line mission partners to understand and reduce risks to human health, regulatory compliance, and mission execution. Workflows and visualizations will depend heavily upon use of data-focused programming languages and tools such as Python/Pandas and R, BusinessObjects, SQL, and Microsoft Excel; and visualization tools such as Tableau, Power BI and Qlik. End-product visualizations will facilitate user interaction with complex data sets hosted on a SharePoint site and custom-built web-based applications to allow aggregation of data, exploration of relationships between data sets, and identification of courses of action to improve data quality, program performance, and risk management.
Essential Job Functions
Assess, design, and build workflows to integrate and process large data sets using Python/Pandas, R, Microsoft Excel, Tableau Prep Builder, and other relevant tools as appropriate.

Recommend changes to underlying data sets and source reports to optimize workflows and data processing/visualization efforts.
Explore and pursue opportunities to apply machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), and natural language processing (NLP) to enhance ability to categorize, process, and visually represent data.
Write, review, design and/or critique strategic, operational and tactical level objectives related to informatics and knowledge management.
Coordinate on a regular basis (or as requested) but not less frequently than monthly with the AFMRA/SG3PM customer to provide a summary of work accomplished and project future goals.
Collaborate daily with USAFSAM/OET on PH integration within the OEH Analytics Portal. For the PH functions outside of the OEH Analytics Portal the contractor will coordinate with USAFSAM/PH and AFMRA/SG3PM for guidance and direction.
Support compilation and analysis of data, drafting of guidance and references, and conducting special studies.
