Your role

As a Bayesian Researcher at Infermedica, you will be responsible for designing complex algorithms intending to mimic reasoning capabilities of real human diagnosticians. Your main focus will be researching and developing novel methods for Bayesian inference and complex statistical and graphical models.

On a day-to-day basis you will work on the prototyping, analysis, implementation and improving of our reasoning engine. You’ll join the growing team of data scientists and will collaborate with medical doctors and developers. We solve problems from A to Z. Starting with finding data sources, through data cleaning, modeling, communicating results with visualizations and interactive reports, up to scalable implementations. You will be able to see the impact of your efforts almost immediately.

Requirements and skills

  • Master’s degree or PhD strongly preferred in one of the following studies: statistics, mathematics, physics, economics or similar quantitative field of study
  • Strong programming skills in R, python or other relevant languages
  • Experience with Bayesian software such as Stan or PyMC3
  • In-depth knowledge and prior working experience with Bayesian network algorithms
  • Proven track-record of proactive planning, scoping, implementing and validating R&D projects
  • Prior experience with large-scale reasoning algorithms
  • Firm grasp of statistical concepts
  • Fluency in English
  • Ability to work autonomously
  • Work 40 hours a week (full time)

It would be even better if you have:

  • PhD in Bayesian inference
  • Experience in Java
  • Previous experience in health data analysis

Perks and benefits

We're committed to build an open and supportive environment where you can do your best work and improve your competence. You will be working with great people, and we will help you lead a healthy life outside of the office. What benefits do we provide?
