Job Description

An NIH-funded data scientist position is available in the group of Prof. Gaurav Pandey (http://research.mssm.edu/gpandey) at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. The target project for this position is the design and implementation of novel machine learning algorithms to extract enhanced predictions and actionable knowledge from crowdsourcing operations. These algorithms will be applied to DREAM challenges (http://dreamchallenges.org) with the goal of improving the community's ability to address difficult biomedical problems. The responsibilities of the position include preparing robust implementation of these algorithms in a big data environment, especially large clusters and Hadoop-based system. These implementations will also be incorporated into the Synapse platform (https://www.synapse.org) for real-time deployment in live DREAM challenges. This work will be conducted in close collaboration with IBM Research and Sage Bionetworks.

Requirements

Candidates should have a masters or PhD-level degree in any computationally-oriented field and should have a solid background in programming and computational techniques. He/she should have strong interest in participating in research in big data and computational biology.

How to Apply

Send a CV, an experience statement and three reference letters to gaurav.pandey@mssm.edu

About Our Organization

Our group focuses broadly on developing and applying machine learning methods to build network and predictive models of biological processes from large biomedical data sets. It is a part of the recently formed Icahn Institute of Genomics and Multiscale Biology (http://multiscale.mssm.edu) at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mt Sinai. The Institute aims to revolutionize the field of genomic medicine by bringing to the table skills from very unorthodox disciplines (for biology), such as computer science, statistics, physics and high-performance computing. The faculty members of the institute, experts in all these areas, analyze large biomedical data sets to build accurate models of biological processes and complex diseases, such as cancer, type-2 diabetes and Alzheimer's disease. Being positioned within a prominent medical center such as Mount Sinai makes it feasible to bring the predictions and therapeutic discoveries from these models to the patients' bedside, thus placing the institute in a very unique position.
