Description

  • InstaDeep is looking for Research Scientists to join our Research Team in London, working at the intersection of machine learning and life sciences. Our in-house Research Team aims to build foundational expertise and develops the next-generation in of deep learning technologies for life science applications; for example, generative models for protein sequence and structure, protein structure prediction and inverse folding, ML-enhanced molecular dynamics, learning meaningful representations from proteomics datasets, and more. This necessarily requires expertise not just in machine learning, but also in the curation of experimental data and computational modelling techniques such as homology modelling, molecular dynamics with classical force fields, quantum chemistry calculations with density functional theory.
  • As a Research Scientist, you will leverage demonstrated you expertise to help shape and deliver the our research agenda, enabling us to stay ahead of the curve in this exciting field.

Requirements

  • Requirements:
  • PhD in Computational Biology, Machine Learning or a related scientific field.
  • A demonstrated ability to successfully deliver high-quality research, for example through the publication of scientific papers in journals or conferences.
  • Excellent communication skills and collaborative spirit.
  • Experience using deep learning frameworks such as PyTorch, Jax and/or Tensorflow.
  • Software development skills in Python.
  • Desirables:
  • Individuals in this role are expected to be accomplished in computational biology and machine learning, with deep expertise in at least one area evidenced by relevant academic/industrial experience or publications.
  • Experience with any of the following biological topics would be a plus.
  • Experience working with large biological datasets, databases (PDB, Uniprot, etc.) and their API technologies.
  • Protein language models
  • Drug discovery and protein engineering
  • Molecular dynamics
  • Structural biology
