  • Proven knowledge and experience with the design, implementation, and testing of deep learning models and analytical capabilities, especially the CLEVER and BERT NLP methods.
  • Demonstrated experience extracting knowledge from real health record data.
  • Experience analyzing research data.
  • Demonstrated analytical skills with the ability to troubleshoot problems of large scope where analysis of situations or data requires a review of a variety of factors.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills for working in a diverse team environment.

 

Desired Qualifications: 

  • Master’s degree in Bioinformatics and at least 6 months of related experience.
