In my research field (materials science) most of the scripts are being written in python with linux based system. Could I installed such linux based python on my window 7? So that I can use those linux based scripts written in python and I can also write my own scripts/code without entirely changing my operating system from windows to linux.

Although the OP is using Windows 7, according to recent articles,
Ubuntu is teaming with MS for Windows 10 to include a bash shell,
presumably with the package management of Ubuntu (debian), with pip
goodness and virtualenv and virtualenvwrapper.  That route should make
W10 and linux (ubuntu) nearly identical environments to deal with
