We are looking for a knowledgeable and skilled researcher/engineer in AI/Machine Learning who wants to make a difference and help bring about a proactive healthcare revolution. As an early stage startup we need someone with a can-do attitude who is happy to jump in and get their hands dirty. This might include anything from tweaking our current models, developing new modelling/algorithmic strategies and training novel models that will be included as part of our product. This person will play a critical role in the team as a Creative Data Scientist, developing sophisticated biomarker and prediction algorithms that will not only have huge value for the research community but will also have lasting health benefits for people around the world.

As an early stage startup with big ambitions you will get the chance to work with numerous different technologies, access a unique genetic dataset, collaborate with top academic experts, get your work published, have a say in how we drive the company forward and learn a ton along the way. An interest in understanding biology and disease is a must.

Nice to have:

* Familiarity with biological concepts and large omics datasets (e.g. genomics data).

Benefits

WHO ARE WE?
Chronomics is an ambitious health tech start-up that believes people should be in charge of their own health. Health management should be proactive, not reactive and it should be personalised.

We are using longitudinal biological data to bring about this revolution. A revolution where not only will people be in control of their own future but also in control of how they contribute to the future of humanity through the use of their data.


WHO DO YOU NEED TO BE?
We’re about openness, integrity, accessibility and great communication so these should be qualities that you have too. The usability of our products, open exchange of ideas with our collaborators and the commitment to our customer’s data ownership are values we won’t budge on and so we’ll want you to exemplify these too.

We recognise and respect the work each of us does. You won’t find micro-management or pettiness on our watch. We also have lives outside of our work and that’s just as important as our business. If we have a role to suit you, it’s an incredible opportunity to join not just a start up with an excellent culture, but a community dedicated to making fundamental changes to how we live.
