Biomedical Data Science Researcher

The Wolfe Center at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel is hiring a computational researcher to develop ML/AI tools and investigate molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration.

Projects are highly collaborative and will draw on various techniques, including deep learning for computer vision, statistical genetics, causal inference, and multi-omics studies.

In this position you will initiate, lead, design and implement AI/ML-driven biomedical studies, together with domain experts (biologists/clinicians). We integrate multidisciplinary biology and data science methods, real-world human clinical data, and molecular experiments. We aim to leverage AI/ML and develop powerful bio-medical predictive models. We also translate the molecular mechanisms we have discovered – that underlie neurodegeneration into potential therapies.

Required Qualifications:

  • MSc/PhD in machine learning, (bio)statistics, computer science, OR equivalent work experience delivering state-of-the-art AI/ML solutions.
  • 2+ years of hands-on experience in AI/ML
  • Fluency Python (a must).
  • Experience developing in a Linux environment
  • Enthusiasm to work in an academic environment

Preferred Qualifications

  • ML for healthcare,  disease biology, or medicine background
  • Scientific publications in AI/ML (NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR, AAAI, among others), computational biology, or bioinformatics venues.
  • Experience working with high-throughput biomedical data (e.g., genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, electronic health records, clinical images).
  • Rstudio

This is a 3-year position, starting as early as April 2024.

Please sare a brief statement of research interest/cover letter with your CV (including list of publications), and contact information of 1-2 references.
