'E' is just fine.

Other choices change the meaning or have modifier problem.

Does the scientist in E have to be plural?

I think E is the best choice out of the remaining because of the modifier issue.

All choices are strange but I would choose E with POE, since all others use modifiers in a wrong way.

My answer is E as well. Sentences that start with a preposition are awkward.
