Transferable Skills

Communication as a Computational Scientist in Data Science

How do you apply this transferable skill in your position?

Communication is essential to what I do. The work I do can be quite technical, in terms of programming, but also in terms of the science involved. It is essential that I communicate this work differently to different people, i.e my manager, the sales and marketing teams, the laboratory directors or the clinical and patient advocacy teams. All of these groups have different priorities and expertise, but it is critical that all of them understand the work I am doing.

What specific skills are part of how you apply this transferable skill?
  • Basic writing and editing
  • Oral communication skills
  • Presenting research to scientists
  • Presenting to nonscientists
  • Speaking clearly and effectively
  • Writing scientific publications
  • Written communication skills
