Description :
NeuroBinder is looking for a Machine Learning (ML) Researcher and cofounder to help us create artificial intelligence products. Machine Learning Researcher responsibilities include creating machine learning models and advancing the state of the art by researching and inventing entirely new neural network architectures. To do this job successfully, you need exceptional skills in statistics and programming. If you have a strong foundation in data science and software engineering, and an entrepreneurial mindset, we d like to meet you. Your ultimate goal will be to help solve the A.I. Safety Problem, as described in Prof. Stuart Russell s book Human Compatible: Artificial Intelligence and the Problem of Control and Brian Christian s book The Alignment Problem. To apply, please send an email to with your CV/ r sum , cover letter, and a link to your research. This position is remot but a willingness to move to Los Angeles or Pittsburgh is preferred. Responsibilities: * We see a win-win opportunity for you to build your publication record while contributing important new ideas to the A.I. safety field. We encourage you to pursue original A.I. Alignment research ideas and you are encouraged to submit your papers to leading conferences & journals of your choice. * Study and transform ML prototypes * Design machine learning systems * Research and implement appropriate ML algorithms and tools * Develop machine learning applications according to requirements * Select appropriate datasets and data representation methods * Run machine learning tests and experiments * Perform statistical analysis and fine-tuning using test results * Train and retrain systems when necessary * Extend existing ML libraries and frameworks * Keep abreast of developments in the field * Familiarity in state-of-the-art technology and researches in ML application Skills: * Proven experience as a Machine Learning Researcher or similar role * Understanding of data structures, data modeling and software architecture * Experience with database management platform (i.e. Streaming Data Platform, Kafka, Logstash, Teradata, etc.), and data formats (e.g. SQL, NoSQL, AWS S3, JSON, etc.) * Deep knowledge of math, probability, statistics and algorithms (regression, simulation, scenario analysis, modeling, clustering, decision trees, neural networks, etc.) * Experience working with large dataset (on order of million-billion data points and several hundred Gigabytes to Terabytes in size) * Ability to write robust code in Python, Java and R (and optionally C++) * Familiarity with machine learning frameworks (like Keras, TensorFlow, PyTorch, etc) and libraries (like scikit-learn) * Excellent communication and technical writing skills * A positive attitude to take on one of the most challenging problems in the industry * Excited to work in a cross-disciplinary team of skilled, hardworking team members * Outstanding analytical and problem-solving skills * PhD in Computer Science, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, or similar field * Knowledge in software version control (github, mercurial, svn, etc) * Strong skills with the Linux command line Bonus Points: * Interest or experience with fMRI, EEG, or other brain imaging technologies and/or TMS, TDCS and other brain stimulation technologies * Entrepreneurial background * Prior publications for machine learning (ICML, AAAI, NIPS, CVPR, IOS, ICRA, ICCV, etc ) * Computer Vision experience including high-accuracy classifiers and/or pix2pix-based style transfer * Language Model experience optionally including familiarity with word2vec * Agile software management experience e.g. with Jira Additional Details: * Role is full-time and will come with startup equity * Role includes public visibility such as attending conferences and publishing and optionally includes the ability to speak with the press if desired Show moreShow less
