  • 5+ years of project-based work in the ML field - preference for candidates with a PhD in electrical engineering, computer science, applied math, physics, bioinformatics or related field.
  • Proven track record of quality of work is required.
  • Fluency in Python with expertise in Keras, PyTorch, Theano, or TensorFlow.
  • Experience working with Senior Scientist II, Computational Biologist, and ability to manage and customize cloud-based computing environments.
  • Project-based experience with deep learning (including CNNs and RNNs) and handling large, high-dimensional data sets.
  • Up-to-date knowledge of the fast-moving ML literature and familiarity with field leaders.
  • The ability to identify and investigate important new research topics independently.
  • The capacity to develop and iterate on one's own ideas, as well as resource existing knowledge and methods.
  • Strong written and verbal skills; ability to translate and communicate complex information and concepts for scientists of diverse backgrounds.
  • Positive and collaborative attitude; ability to work effectively with internal and external collaborators and multidisciplinary teams composed of scientists and non-scientists to translate emerging research to guide internal programs.
  • Capacity to prioritize and work independently to complete tasks and advance projects with minimal supervision.
  • Familiarity with protein biophysics, x-ray crystallography, and/or molecular dynamics preferred.
