Machine Learning & AI Scientist

  • About You:

    • You are a talented computational scientist with a passion for using machine learning and AI approaches to answer important scientific questions.   At Autonomous, you'll be using your AI background to help predict the long-term safety and efficacy of our therapeutics.  

    • An ideal candidate would also have deep experience developing stochastic models to analyze dynamical systems (genomic and disease evolution are two highly relevant examples).  

    • You'll be working closely with our experimental virology and engineering teams to test your predictions in real-time settings in the lab.

    • In addition to helping us design and optimize new therapies, you'll also be working with us to predict future pandemics and threats to global health.

    • Experience: At least 4-5 years of experience involving ML or AI, coding (e.g., python), and stochastic modeling.

  • Job Type: Full-Time

    • Education: Masters or Doctorate


Virologist

  • About You:

    • You are an excellent virologist or synthetic biologist, who wants to help us develop first-in-class antivirals from HIV to herpes.

    • Specific expertise we’re looking for, includes: extensive work with viral reverse genetics (i.e., viral engineering) systems, experience with high-throughput assays (both developing the assays and using them), tissue culture experience, virus cultivation/quantification experience, as well as knowledge of standard molecular and cell biology techniques (e.g., qPCR, flow cytometry, molecular cloning, and western blots).

    • We’ll teach you cutting edge bioinformatics, robotics and mathematical modeling which you’ll use to track and predict the outputs of your experiments (e.g., the safety and efficacy of the therapies).

    • Experience: At least 5 years of wet-lab experience involving mammalian viruses.

  • Job Type: Full-Time

    • Education: Doctorate (Required) 


Cancer Biologist

  • About You:

    • You are a talented biologist with deep experience in oncology as well as in virology or immunology (e.g., you’ve worked on oncolytic viruses).

    • An ideal candidate has: i) a Ph.D. in cancer biology, immunology or virology ii) at least 5 years of hands-on, wet-lab experience involving human cancers, and iii) experience designing oncolytic viruses or immunotherapies and testing these therapies in vitro and in vivo.

    • Additional expertise a candidate might have includes: work with tumors in vitro (e.g., organoid systems) and in vivo, viral reverse genetics and (BSL2/3) tissue culture experience, extensive experience with virus cultivation/quantification, as well as knowledge of standard molecular biology and cell biology techniques (e.g., qPCR, flow cytometry, molecular cloning, western blots).

    • Experience: At least 5 years of wet-lab experience, including significant experience with human cancers.

  • Job Type: Full-Time

    • Education: Doctorate (Required)
