Since 2006, 23andMe’s mission has been to help people access, understand, and benefit from the human genome. We are a group of passionate individuals pushing the boundaries of what’s possible to help turn genetic insight into better health and personal understanding.
23andMe's Therapeutics team is committed to discovering and developing new therapies that can offer significant benefits for patients. This dedicated research and development group in South San Francisco, California identifies novel targets using 23andMe's genetic database and performs preclinical research to advance programs for disease areas with high unmet need. More information about our Therapeutics team is available at therapeutics.23andme.com/.
We are looking for a quantitative scientist with experience and expertise in using AI/ML approaches to model complex data. 23andMe has the world’s largest cohort of phenotypes and genotypes. Your role will be to work with our team of computational biologists and geneticists to help guide the use of AI/ML technologies to support drug discovery. Areas of application involve: predictive models of genetic risk for various diseases and traits, phenotype imputation, highly multivariate regression modeling, application of methods such as Gaussian processes to longitudinal data, as well as high dimensional clustering approaches to assess complex diseases.
Qualified candidates will have the following:
- Ph.D. in Statistics, Computer Science or a related field with a strong emphasis on AI/ML approaches and strong statistical expertise
- Excellent interpersonal communication and the ability to collaborate effectively with colleagues
- Experience working with very large data sets
Experience programming in a cloud environment and/or a background in genetics and/or genomics are strong pluses
