We are an interdisciplinary, multi-cultural and science-driven team passionate about leveraging nature’s potential for human health and a sustainable food system. We are leaders in discovery, validation and making of bioactive food peptides and on a mission to improving the lives of billions. We are changing the game and breaking new ground thanks to our unique combination of artificial intelligence, proteomics, biology and manufacturing.

 

The Role

• Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence Scientist

• New Dublin-based scientist role in Data Science Team

• Work on cutting-edge machine learning approaches for drug/ingredient discovery from initial concept to final delivery 

• Leverage our libraries of natural compounds and our peptide knowledge base to identify most promising health-beneficial peptides to be developed in our laboratories

• Help expand our knowledge into new therapeutic areas and enhance the accuracy of our predictions

• Contribute to our next-generation peptides and help acceleration from idea to market


Responsibilities

• Work with the Data Science/Computational Biology Team to integrate the newly developed algorithms and solutions

• Apply the core technologies of Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and intelligent decision-making in R&D and related projects

• Maintain expert knowledge in state-of-the-art Machine Learning approaches 

• Lead AI projects through each phase, from scoping of the initial solution to development of a Minimum Viable Product
