The Opportunity
Key to insitro’s approach to rethinking drug development is leveraging disease models, genetics, and clinical datasets to link in vitro and cellular phenotypes with patient outcomes.

As a machine learning engineer with expertise in clinical data analysis, you will develop cutting edge deep learning and computer vision tools to analyze and integrate large-scale multi-modal phenotypic datasets, including medical imaging modalities, physiological monitoring, and longitudinal data. You will work with clinical data from randomized clinical trials, large human cohorts with medical imaging datasets, and other sources. You will also work closely with a cross-functional team of life scientists, statistical geneticists, bioengineers and machine learning scientists to integrate human level data with our high-throughput in-house in vitro genomic and phenotypic data to identify therapeutic targets and develop drugs that have high efficacy and low toxicity.

You will be joining an agile and fast growing biotech startup that has long-term stability due to significant funding, but yet is very much in formation. You will have ample opportunities for significant impact. You will work closely with a very talented team, learn a broad range of skills, and help shape insitro’s culture, strategic direction, and outcomes. Join us, and help make a difference to patients!
