Calico (Calico Life Sciences LLC) is an Alphabet-founded research and development company whose mission is to harness advanced technologies and model systems to increase our understanding of the biology that controls human aging. Calico will use that knowledge to devise interventions that enable people to lead longer and healthier lives. Calico’s highly innovative technology labs, its commitment to curiosity-driven discovery science, and, with academic and industry partners, its vibrant drug-development pipeline, together create an inspiring and exciting place to catalyze and enable medical breakthroughs.
Calico is seeking a Machine Learning Scientist to join a team investigating aging and disease using genetics and functional genomics in humans and model systems. Genomics offers rich, informative profiles of organism state throughout life. We collect these data to build causal models for organism state, that reveal the critical underlying cellular processes and highlight promising intervention points. The ideal candidate is passionate about unraveling how genome sequence determines function and the adverse transformations that accompany aging.
Predictive modeling with cutting edge machine learning tools are at the core of this work, exemplified by recent publications modeling regulatory activity as a function of DNA sequence using deep learning.
