Come work at AbCellera, and join the fight against pandemics, infectious diseases, and genetic diseases! We have a multi-faceted pipeline that is able to rapidly discover next-generation antibody therapies. Our pipeline generates an immense amount of valuable data which can be used to further develop our pipeline through state-of-the-art machine learning techniques. Our machine learning team is a small group of motivated people who work in collaboration with life scientists to constantly improve our discovery pipeline. Ultimately, we are all working towards a common goal which we strongly believe will make the world a better place. Join AbCellera and help bring new therapeutics to patients around the world!

The role:

Our research creates a huge amount of data. We need someone like you to help bridge the gap between complex biological data and life-changing insights, but fear not, if you don’t have a biology background we’ll get you up to speed. On any given day you might:

  • Develop computer vision models to automate and improve our drug discovery pipeline
  • Investigate data in creative ways to pull out exciting trends and discover useful features
  • Work on novel research and development projects to expand our capabilities
  • Optimize machine learning and data science pipelines with a focus on scalability
  • Work collaboratively with life scientists, engineers, and software engineers

What we’re looking for:

  • A Bachelor’s degree and 3 years of work experience in machine learning and/or data science, or a Master’s/Ph.D. in machine learning or data science and 1 year of work experience
  • Experience developing production-grade machine learning models
  • Proficiency in working with big data
  • An expert in computer vision, OpenCV, TensorFlow/Keras/PyTorch
  • Experience with Python 
  • A strong ability to present work and communicate ideas to technical and non-technical coworkers
  • A strong desire to work in a collaborative, multidisciplinary environment
  • No previous biology experience required, but a desire to learn more about the field is!

Perks of the job:

  • An attractive compensation package, including health and lifestyle benefits
  • A minimum of 3 weeks’ vacation
  • A seat in our beautiful office in Vancouver, BC, Canada (just off Cambie Street - with plenty of good lunch options nearby)
  • Opportunities for personal and professional development 
  • And of course, the opportunity to make a real difference, working on challenging problems that matter

About AbCellera: 

At AbCellera, we’re solving tough problems and creating innovative solutions from the ground up - custom immunizations, microfluidics, high-throughput imaging, genomics, computation, machine learning, and laboratory automation. We’re revolutionizing how our scientists explore antibodies and the scale at which they can do so. This is life-changing research and you could be a part of it.

You’ll join a diverse and multidisciplinary team of biologists, biochemists, engineers, bioinformaticians, computer scientists and physicists - all working together to bring better therapies to patients. We’re a growing company with a high-throughput pipeline and the drive to be the best in the industry. This isn’t just about having the best technology. We know we need a world-class team of visionaries and innovators. We look for people with drive and energy. Idealists. People we love and people we trust. This may be unconventional, but it is the key to our success. We’re looking for someone like you to help us get there.
