Biomedical Data Scientist

| Greater Boston Area

At PathAI, we are using machine learning to diagnose disease accurately and to match patients with effective therapies. We develop and apply computational methods to integrate data across biological scales (population, patient, tissue, cellular, molecular and genomic) to define disease states and to predict therapeutic response. Data Science and biostatistics play central roles in this effort. We are looking for a Data Scientist to lead these efforts at PathAI.

Responsibilities 

If you're the right candidate, you'll be exercising all the technical and scientific skills you have and building new ones along the way:

  • Lead biostatistics efforts in a team setting of fellow scientists and machine learning engineers
  • Cross-functional collaboration with other teams to integrate large-scale datasets and use bioinformatics to define the factors associated with drug response and resistance
  • Develop computational methods and build tools to enable data-driven patient stratification and inform the development of clinical decision support products
  • Identify scientifically relevant findings within datasets spanning multiple modalities
  • Develop scalable computational solutions to further clinical data analysis automation across projects
  • Communicate findings both internally and externally and recommend follow up actions

Qualifications

Our employees come in all shapes and sizes, but to be successful in this role with us, you'll at least need:

  • Ph.D. in bioinformatics, engineering, statistics, biostatistics, biomedical engineering, cancer biology, immunology, genetics, or similar with 3+ years of industry experience or strong academic record.
  • Demonstrated ability of contributing to multi-disciplinary team projects.
  • Expertise with programming language such as R AND Python for complex data analysis and reproducible research practices.
  • Mastery in integrating and analyzing diverse high-dimensional data sets relevant to oncology, immunology, and other areas of clinical relevance.
  • Capability to conduct systematic analyses to evaluate multiple hypotheses and prioritize clinically-relevant questions.
  • Scientific curiosity with an ability to identify questions that computational approaches can address, and the skills to develop solutions both independently and collaboratively.
  • Excellent problem-solving and collaboration skills.
  • Strong communication, data presentation, and visualization skills.
  • Strong publication record.
  • Background in clinical data/oncology/immuno-oncology and/or experience working with clinical trial data is a plus.

Benefits

For the right candidate, we'll offer a competitive salary plus equity. Your compensation is rounded out by a strong benefits package:

  • Flexible work hours, with work-from-home options available for many roles
  • Three weeks of paid leave per year, an additional two weeks of sick time, plus extended holidays and team-approved leave
  • Ten days of 100% subsidized childcare per year
  • Healthcare, vision, and dental insurance plans (HMO or PPO), with voluntary add-ons available for dependent care, life, and accident coverage
  • Commuter benefit available for public transit or parking
  • Convertible sit-stand desks
  • Weekly in-office yoga classes
  • Free in-office lunch on Tuesdays and Fridays
  • Snacks and drinks in the office – which currently include a mountain of Milano cookies, endless Fruit Snacks, as well as cold brew coffee and kombucha on tap, among many other options. Our in-house Snackologist is also happy to take your requests!

Most importantly, you'll be doing important work with a team of people you'll genuinely enjoy spending the day with.

An Insider's view of PathAI

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We’re really flexible - there are no on-call shifts, and you can work from home when you need to. A lot of my colleagues have young children and they can be there for their family. We all work hard, but the work is task-oriented and day-to-day workload is actually realistic.

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Automating and auto-scaling a generalized machine learning workflow that takes pathologists from a slide medical image to a clinical prediction

Mariel

What makes someone successful on your team?

Someone who is willing to roll up their sleeves and do what it takes to get the job done will do well here! Since we're a small startup, we all wear multiple hats, so a willingness to adapt, be flexible, and learn from one another is really important.

Diana

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We hire smart people to solve hard problems early on, and just let them do their thing.
