Data Science Student

The future you want is within reach.


At PCL, we build the places where life happens and find camaraderie in the process. We’re a community of builders committed to building better communities. That’s why we’re always looking ahead, and not just to the next project or what’s next in our industry.


We’re also looking at what’s next for you and how we can help you build a career you’re proud of. As a student at PCL, you will get the opportunity for challenging work assignments in a supportive work environment which promotes personal and professional growth.


We are seeking a Data Science Student for our PCL Industrial Management Inc. Office located in Edmonton, AB, that is available for 4 or 8 months starting in January 2022.


As a Data Science Student, you will contribute to our team by:


  • Learn and perform exploratory data analysis and present insights.  
  • Prepare data sets for visualization and machine learning modeling.  
  • Train machine learning systems using data annotation and benchmarking techniques.  
  • Prepare data visualizations using industry-leading tools. 
  • Document your work - tell the story of the results, the successes, and the lessons-learned for future reference.  
  • Keep an open mind and utilize your unique skills when other opportunities arise.  


  • Bachelor's or master student in computing, math/stats, engineering, or another quantitative field. If your field of study differs, tell us why you will be a good fit.  
  • Analytical skills – ability to quickly analyze data to identify and visualize key insights and possibilities. 
  • Coursework in statistics. Applied statistics and probability are the focus of the position: if you can converse about regression models, and clustering approaches, you will be fine.  
  • Prior exposure to a statistical or scientific programming environment is helpful. If you do not have it, you will become familiar while you are with us. 
  • Your communication skills – oral and written - will help. You will work with both experts in the field and business staff, so you will find it important to be able to converse adaptively with both. 

Please note that candidates who have been selected to move forward to the next stage of the recruitment process will receive an email to complete a short online video interview.
