Data Scientist (NLP) | Eagle Genomics, UK (вакансія неактивна)


On behalf of Eagle Genomics, GT is looking for Data Scientist with a solid background in NLP to join their newly created prototyping team in Kyiv.

As a Data Scientist, you will utilize your analytical, statistical, and programming skills to collect, analyze, and interpret large data sets, and participate in the development of the e[DataScientist] platform.

About the project:

Eagle Genomics is a pioneering company working at the intersection of two exciting areas: life sciences and data science. The exploration into the microbiome is inspiring a new view of biology. Breakthrough research into how microbes interact with humans, animals, and natural ecosystems is creating a wealth of vital data and insight into health, wellbeing, and environmental sustainability. Eagle Genomics operates at the intersection of biology, technology, and data to deliver microbiome discoveries that profoundly change the understanding of wellness and even fundamental assumptions about life on Earth. Their Network Science platform, the e[datascientist], drives novel microbiome insights in ever more accessible, intelligent and relevant ways. Through the blend of scientific expertise, advanced AI, and a genuinely curious and free-thinking culture Eagle Genomics empowers breakthrough possibilities in the true life-changing areas of study.

This is the intersection of ideas, innovation, and intelligence. If you’re passionate about data, ML/AI, experiments, prototype development, and innovations, join the team and help us change what it means to do real science and drive innovations.

The product development team in Kyiv: 2 Data Scientists, 2 Software Engineers. The team is currently expanding, so we are awaiting more engineers, a designer, and a project manager to join us soon. Your line manager will be a Data Science Director who is based in the UK.

The technology stack we are using: Python, R, Tensorflow, Keras, Skikit-learn, React, Angular, AWS. But we are always open to something new if it’s reasonable.
