Data Scientist

The UCSF Immunoprofiler Initiative is hiring motivated Data Scientists interested in applying and developing cutting-edge machine learning analytics to imaging and other high dimensional datasets, with the aim of discovering as-yet unknown patterns in human disease. Very proximal goals of this research include the discovery of new diagnostic and therapeutic modalities for cancer. Long-term lessons learned are also very likely to inform the diagnosis and treatment of multiple diseases.
