Ageing is one of the greatest challenges of our time. As the major risk factor for diseases and functional decline, it is at the root of the most devastating health problems we face. Science has demonstrated that we can slow the ageing process and extend the lives of animals in the laboratory.
At EPITERNA, our mission is to translate these breakthroughs into longer and healthier lives for both pets and people. Our team develops affordable products that can safely slow the ageing process to prevent age-related disease, delay functional decline, and extend life.
We have sufficient funding from investors who are deeply aligned with our mission, so while we are an early-stage startup, we have the necessary resources to develop best in class research and clinical infrastructure.
What you will do
Data mining and data analysis of human and companion animal biobanks.
Machine learning for drug discovery and target lead identification.
Develop scripts to process and visualize biological data.
Implement web apps for visualization of results
What you are bringing
MS or PhD in Computer Science, Data Science or equivalent experience.
Proficiency in web development, R, Python, data analysis, data visualization.
Highly organised, good at being rigorous and caring about details. Motivated and reliable.
Excellent communication skills in English. Spanish and French would be a plus. Capacity to explain complex information in a clear and simple way.
What you will find here
We are a small but growing team of ambitious scientists, physicians, and engineers. We understand that our mission will not be simple or quick, but we are determined to create more time that matters.
We are a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary, and pragmatic team and care deeply about creating a company culture that allows everyone to thrive and grow.
We are committed to rethink how we provide healthcare, from treatment of diseases to preventive care to slow down aging and extend life and health. If you want to deliver the very best outcomes to your patients rather than following common wisdom of how healthcare works, you will love it here.
Our processes, company size and personal responsibilities are not yet established and will change faster than in a corporate environment. This means there is a lot of room for you to take responsibility and move fast, but it can also be overwhelming at times.
We would like you to join as soon as possible.
This position is based in Alicante, Spain (it is a beautiful place). We work on-site. We believe this is important especially now at the beginning so we can create together EPITERNA’s culture.
