Postdoctoral Researcher – AI/ML applications in Personalised Medicine (R2)

Application deadline:

"The Computational Biology group, led by ICREA professor Alfonso Valencia, is looking for a postdoctoral researcher to work in the context of AI/ML applications in Personalised Medicine. The Life Sciences Department at the BSC integrates the independent research of senior scientists that work on various aspects of computational biology, ranging from bioinformatics for genomics to computational biochemistry and text mining. The Computational Biology group (http://life.bsc.es/compbio) is involved in multiple projects covering a wide range of topics including multilayer network modeling, epigenomics and computations systems biology. The candidate will work in collaboration with senior researchers in the Computational Biology Group of the Life Sciences Department as well as other research groups at the BSC. The work is in the framework of the research lines of the group, which include applications of AI in personalized medicine, cell-level simulations including metabolic models, sequence-based protein coevolution and genomics. The Researcher will work in a highly sophisticated HPC environment, will have access to state-of-the-art systems and computational infrastructures, and will establish collaborations with experts in different areas both at international and local levels, in particular. The Researcher’s tasks will involve applying AI/ML methods in the context of biomedical decision making. The analysis will focus on OMICs data from patients, leveraging in particular knowledge of cellular mechanisms in biological networks. "
