About Immunai:

Immunai is a data & engineering-first platform company dedicated to transforming therapeutic decision-making, from drug discovery to clinical trials. Leveraging our vast clinico-immune database alongside advanced machine learning algorithms, we map the immune system with unmatched scale and detail. This empowers us to offer end-to-end solutions to our pharma partners - from data generation to therapeutic innovation to clinical trial optimization. In an era where AI and drug development are converging, we strive to accelerate the delivery of breakthrough medicines to patients, ensuring a healthier future for all.

About the role:

As a Deep Learning Scientist at Immunai, you will join our Machine Learning team to research, build, and deploy our core single-cell representation models. These models synthesize large amounts of molecular data and metadata, linking therapies, indications, data modalities, and biological systems to drug trial results. Your purpose will be to influence drug development decisions based on the prediction of the team's models.

You'll tackle the challenge of modeling varied big data from millions of cell-specific measurements, focusing on, but not limited to, advanced transformer architectures. You will collaborate closely with an experienced ML team, computational biologists, and immunologists to ensure the success and broad application of our models in both internal and external projects at Immunai.
