Senior Data Scientist

Full-timeNYCData ScienceNYC


ScienceIO is on a mission to make healthcare more transparent, connected, and equitable with the help of artificial intelligence. Since 2019, we've been developing language models optimized for responsible and secure use in healthcare.

We’re looking for a Senior Data Scientist to help build our next generation of language models. You'll have the opportunity to work closely with our machine learning engineers to improve the quality of our algorithms. You'll deepen our understanding of our data and support real-world monitoring of model performance and bias. You'll work with users to understand their needs, and directly inform how our technology roadmap evolves to meet their critical needs. Fundamentally, this role is focused on understanding how data turns into algorithms and products that can make the most positive impact on healthcare.

You'll be a part of a dedicated and curious team of experts in machine learning, medicine, biology, and healthcare workflows. We care deeply about making our healthcare system better for every patient and provider. Learn more about us from our Substack and our recent feature in Microsoft’s Technology Record.
