Computational Postdoctoral 

The Hornstein Lab at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel is hiring a computational postdoc 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.

You will: 

  • Initiate, lead, design and implement AI/ML-driven biomedical studies, together with domain experts (biologists/clinicians).
  • Work and collaborate with a team, and also can perform independent research

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:

  • PhD in machine learning, (bio)statistics, computer science, or another relevant field.
  • 2+ years of hands-on experience in AI/ML
  • Fluency Python (a must) and R. 
  • Experience developing in a Linux environment
  • Familiarity with machine learning literature, foundational mathematics and statistics, and state-of-the-art modeling approaches.

Preferred Qualifications

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

This is a 4-year position, starting as early as April 2024. 

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