A data scientist position is available in the laboratory 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 build network and predictive models of diseases and biological processes from large complex biomedical data sets. The responsibilities of the position include preparing robust implementation of such algorithms in a big data environment, especially large high-performance computing clusters. This work will be conducted in close collaboration with several other computational and experimental biologists at Mount Sinai and beyond.
The selected candidate will be able to contribute to the ongoing projects in the lab and the Institute, as well as define his/her own projects.
