The AI Scientist will act as a tech lead and be required to establish and apply new AI methods to specific problem domains within those functions. This position requires the incumbent to leverage strong machine learning knowledge and hands-on experience for solving real AI problems. With the supervision and mentoring of the head of ECDi MLP, the AI scientist will develop and implement novel mathematical and algorithmic techniques for machine learning applications of ECD AI projects. There are two studies tracks that can be explored by the newly recruited AI Scientist. One is to apply and develop advanced machine learning/deep learning models to process protein’s amino acids sequence for TCR-antigen interaction prediction in cancer immunology and antibody design/engineer in protein science with varieties of protein-protein interaction scenarios, which can facilitate the drug discovery process in large molecule drug development and cancer immunology therapies. Meanwhile, the team is exploring a new direction of personalized medicine AI for oncology. The focus for this direction is to apply machine learning and deep learning approaches to incorporate genomic information, model and integrate patients biomarker/digital biomarker and EHR data from clinical trials to make multimodality predictions on the patients’ disease progression, response/non-response/survival rates, and accordingly help infer the decision for clinical scientist to design the clinical trials, with built-up AI products speeding up workflows within ECD. Furthermore, the analysis on the patients’ data can help conduct reverse translation study to guide drug/target discoveries in early research.
