I would like to get some idea if my husband may have chances to change his career to data science.
My husband is 42 and has a PhD in Mathematics from a very good university in France. He has an academic job in our home country doing research, and prior to that has been doing research in a top university in Germany in Mathematics. His research field is not statistics but during the last two years he has been teaching Master level courses on Statistics and Statistical Analysis and now on Machin Learning. He has some exprience with matlab and R.
He is very much talented and intelligent (one can show this in his CV I think) and a very quick learner and able to understand the most complicated level mathematics.
We are moving to Calgary-Canada and are trying to find out if he will have any possibilities to work there in Data science field (which we find the most likely field for him). He speaks English and French. I thought maybe you can help me out by telling us if you think in the data science job market in Canada how much chance he will have to get a job. Actually he is kind of person who looks for a ‘good’ job, which kind of means a job in which he uses his capabilities.
If you think there are opportunities for him, in which sub-fields in data-science it could happen better?
I would greatly appreciate if you let me know what you think.
