Since 1985, the Frank Hawkins Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise has encouraged cooperative efforts among privately owned business, higher education and government. More than a think tank we find ways to connect people and organizations, create opportunities and resources, and accelerate the achievement of our partners.
Core operating support from the William R. Kenan Jr., Fund – along with grants and outside contracts – allow us to pursue research and consulting in a non-partisan setting. As part of the top-ranked UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School, we have access to intellectual resources, global networks and partners around the world. Our seasoned scholars use these connections to apply their leading edge thinking to real-world challenges. The primary purpose of the Research Analyst and Machine Learning Specialist is researching new technologies such as machine learning and data analytics methods, implementing these new methods in software tools, and understanding how to apply them to solve theoretical and practical problems. A large portion of the work consists in creating new data models, working with equations and scientific models, setting up experimental designs and testing in a software environment, as well as writing papers describing those experiments and results achieved.
