The Alan Turing Institute
Named in honour of Alan Turing, the Institute is a place for inspiring, exciting work and we need passionate, sharp, and innovative people who want to use their skills to contribute to our mission to make great leaps in data science and AI research to change the world for the better.
Please find more information about us here
The Alan Turing Institute and the Wellcome Sanger Institute are world-leading scientific institutions, with complementary skills in machine learning techniques and using genomic data to answer scientific questions. Under a new partnership, both institutes are embarking on a collaborative research project.
This project will combine two important fields of study: machine learning and spatial / single-cell transcriptomics.
The partnership is now recruiting a Research Associate with a research background in machine learning. You will be expected to work on specific machine learning projects at the intersection of single-cell biology, spatial omics and machine learning.
The successful candidate will have a PhD (or equivalent experience and/or qualifications) in a relevant area which will include either a computational focus like Statistics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Information Engineering, etc. or a biomedical modelling focus like Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Biomedical Engineering.
This role requires experience in statistical modelling and/or data analytics on significant real-world problems, including experience in learning from data from multiple sources and types. The ideal candidate will have substantial experience of using modern statistical programming languages (such as R and Python) and strong knowledge of core data science libraries e.g. Scikit-Learn, SciPy, TensorFlow, and PyTorch.
This is a stand-out opportunity to join a prestigious, national research institute and shape its agenda at an important and exciting time in its development, by being part of an exciting new partnership with the Wellcome Sanger Institute.
Applicants must be prepared to travel between the Turing office, London and the Wellcome Sanger Institute in Cambridge, when required.
