Research & Innovation - Internship 6 months – Scientific Computing - 2021 - M/W
For L’Oréal, beauty is above all a scientific adventure. This principle is reflected in the key role played by our Research & Innovation division, which deploys its teams all around the world to dream up and create the products of tomorrow.
But wait, have you heard about our history?
In 1909, Eugène Schueller, a young chemist, formulated the first hair dyes using a blend of harmless chemical compounds. With his entrepreneurial spirit, he sold it to Parisian hairdressers and founded the Société Française des Teintures Inoffensives pour Cheveux.
You never heard of that company? Don’t worry, we don’t blame you, because you know it under its current name: L’Oréal.
More than a century later, Eugene Schueller’s belief that research and innovation form the cornerstone of growth and success has spread to reach more than 3800 R&I employees, and enabled the discovery of over 130 molecules and the development of thousands of formulas and products.

Internship in Scientific Computing
Flexible starting date between January and July 2021 for 6 months, located in the Paris region
3 stages sont à pourvoir :
MISSION 1 :
Statistics and Biostatistics, Sensory or Statistic analysis
MISSION 2 : Development of a statistical tool for specific sensory analysis
The missions of Data Insight Team (Scientific Computing Department) at l’Oréal is to work in close collaboration with Laboratory, Advanced Research and Product Performance Evaluation (including Sensory Science and Consumer Science) to help them into decision making.
Our help consists in providing tools, algorithms, decision rules… based on a statistical expertise. The mission of this internship will focus on the collaboration with Product Performance Evaluation, specifically Sensory Science Teams.
Today many analyses specific to sensory science are performed with external software. We want to develop the ability of performing these analyses in an internal platform. The aim of the internship will be to define what analysis are the most relevant to help sensory teams (among CATA, time intensity analysis, penalty analysis, free sorting…), set up adapted statistical methodologies and implement R code into an internal platform.
The main deliverable of this project are:
