You should have a recent Masters Degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Data Science or a closely related area. A master thesis on an ML topic and ML related courses in your masters programs will be an asset. You are expected to have strong analytic and programming skills, the ability to work independently, strong interpersonal as well as English language skills.
