Our client is a global drug discovery company looking for a Machine Learning expert to help build their team.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • A PhD/post doc within the computer sciences with several years of work experience

  • Familiarity with most of the standard methods: linear regression, logistic regression, decision trees, random forest, neural networks, nearest neighbours, support vector machines, lasso, deep learning - including deep neural networks and deep belief networks.

  • You need to have experience with developing and training both classical machine learning techniques as well as more advanced deep learning algorithms.

  • Publications within the field are considered a plus.

Previous experience with drug discovery and translational science from the pharmaceutical industry/biotech is a plus but is not a requirement.

The job requires proficiency in English and excellent communication and collaboration skills.
