Well, I usually see an atheist as an agnostic that's decided that it's most likely not to be a god. There's some debate over the semantics (What I describe is a weak atheist, I guess, whereas a strong one is sure).
The wording of the OP ("I believe there is no god") fits.

By that definition, it can work for a scientist. See it as a hypothesis, if it helps.
(And if we limit ourselves to belief in a god that is involved now, it's even possible to gather some data on things like apparent effects of prayer and the like to strengthen that hypothesis.)
