Also, recruiters of “data scientists” with whom I’ve spoke still don’t seem to know the difference between these roles. One would thing they would get it by now.

I think “data scientists” are also the hardest role to fill, much the way academics who are actually good at at a domain, but also at methodology, are hard to find. Most “data science-y” training is still formulaic, although I can appreciate why — gaining necessary expertise across the multitude of techniques well enough to know the moving parts comfortably is hard enough a task, even before thinking about where things fit in. On the other hand, one should think the process should be reverse: i.e. the first step should be conceptualizing the problem, formulating the approach, and then look into the possible choice of methodologies for tackling the problem and what adaptations are needed….
