Our Research

The Probabilistic Machine Learning and Genomics Group, co-led by Mafalda Dias and Jonathan Frazer, develops models of the effect of genetic variation on the health of humans and other species. The primary goal is to develop tools which can aid in diagnosis, preventative care, and discovery of the genetic underpinnings of disease. We study the full spectrum of rare and common diseases and build models ranging in scale from single proteins to whole genomes. We are a 100% computational group using techniques from deep learning, Bayesian statistics, comparative genomics and population genetics.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for someone who loves model building and is keen on studying disease from an evolutionary perspective. This position is part of a joint project in collaboration with the Transcriptomics of Vertebrate Development and Evolution Group, headed by Manuel Irimia. Experience in statistics, deep learning, or transcriptomics is desirable but not essential.
