Who we are:
Calico is a research and development company whose mission is to harness advanced technologies to increase our understanding of the biology that controls lifespan, and to devise interventions that enable people to lead longer and healthier lives. Executing on this mission will require an unprecedented level of interdisciplinary effort and a long-term focus for which funding is already in place.
Calico is seeking a strong leader to build and lead a small, world-class team that develops new data analysis and machine learning algorithms to extract insights from data that is being produced by our internal science teams, our collaborators, and by other parties (e.g., publicly available databases). You will also collaborate with our scientists to design new experiments that can provide valuable insights relevant to our mission. The data that your team will tackle will span multiple organisms (from yeast to human), scales (from entire organisms to molecules), data modalities (from physiology to sequencing to imaging to free text), and time scales (from single time points to continuous time series).
Here, you will work in close collaboration with some of the world’s best life scientists and enable them to achieve ground-breaking discoveries in human health. You will do so by creating something new in a company that is both a nimble startup but also has a firm financial footing. Your team will develop cutting edge methods that span data processing, machine learning, data analysis, and data visualization and exploration, and that help extract novel insights from the challenging datasets that we are collecting. You will also work with our data platform and our computational biology teams to turn these methods into a repository of scalable, reusable tools.
