Career Opportunity - Machine Learning Engineer

Machine Lerning Engineer

The SBDR is a renowned society dedicated to biomedical research into diabetes. The Society is engaging an integral part in research project preparation and application at national and international funding organizations.

For a project on molecular photophysical and laser spectroscopy we are looking for a highly qualified Machine Learning Engineer with expertise in computational intelligence, learning theory, algorithm programming, artificial intelligence (AI), and artificial networks. The project is aimed at biological particle measurement by optical and photochemical determination.

You may be affiliated with an academic or research institiution or a private company, which may become concomitant project partner. You may also be without current affiliation, looking for a project and funding of research into computational intelligence applied to biomedicine. The place of work will be Germany. If you are affiliated with an international academic or research institute, you may schedule six months/year stay (for at least three years) in Germany to attend our research facility. The position is scheduled as a 50% position.

Tasks include:

- Developing machine leraning algorithms tailored to the goal of forcast optimization.
- Transforming raw data (resulting from real-time measurements) into statistical data.
- Carrying out multivariate analysis
- Delivering estimation statistics, including effect size and point estimate
- Carrying out predictive analysis
- Developing and benchmarking system performance models.
- Developing and implementing test procedures.
- Evaluating and selecting appropriate test processes.
- Optimization of machine leraning for prediction of optical signatures.
- Development of test procedures.
- Fabrication and testing of prototype systems.
- Modification of design as required.
- Determination of calibration and error analysis on test data.
- Development and maintenance of data collection, reduction, and modeling software.
- Development and maintenance of data bases of measurements and test results.

Essential skills:

- In-depth practical knowledge of statistical methods, including multivariate analysis, estimation statistics, stochastics, Clarke error grid
