As an Applied Machine Learning Scientist at InVivo AI, you’ll join a growing team of researchers working at the forefront of machine learning for drug discovery. Located at the Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms, a world-leading institute in deep learning research, we specialize in few-shot learning, reinforcement learning, and representation learning in the context of molecular design.
With support from some of Canada’s top investors, our small (but growing!) team currently consists of deep learning specialists, bioinformaticians, and computational and molecular biologists. We do both fundamental and applied research and provide our team the opportunity to publish in top journals and conferences. We also work closely with leading research institutions and pharmaceutical companies, and currently have multiple programs underway in oncology and CNS.
Working with us provides the opportunity to apply your technical skills and creativity to truly meaningful problems: the design and optimization of novel molecules that have the potential to improve lives.
Your primary responsibility will be to work with our research team on the development and implementation of novel algorithms. You’ll also assist in translating our theoretical innovations into practical improvements for our partners in ongoing drug discovery programs. This will include assisting in structuring research questions, driving the effective organization and interpretation of proprietary datasets, and conveying capabilities and results to partners in a language they understand. Finally, you’ll assist in literature reviews and grant proposals and contribute to technical reports, presentations, and publications on behalf of InVivo.
We’re open to hearing from candidates with all sorts of backgrounds but ideally you’ll have some understanding of biology and/or drug discovery and:
1. Strong programming Skills (4+ years), including:
2. A minimum of 2-4 years experience in machine learning (industrial or academic), including:
3. The soft skills neede to thrive in an early-stage company, including:
