Subject: 20.12.18 Machine Learning Postdoctoral Opportunity in the NIST PREP Program at Georgetown University
Qualified applicants are invited to apply for postdoctoral research opportunities at the US National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, Maryland in collaboration with Georgetown University. A major aim of our group is to use artificial intelligence to improve mass spectrometry in the fields of proteomics and metabolomics. Our current research objective is to design and train deep neural networks to predict the mass spectra of all peptides in the human genome and to estimate the error of these predictions. These predicted spectra may be incorporated into the NIST mass spectral libraries, used by many thousands of scientists worldwide to analyze complex biological and chemical samples. This opportunity is ideal for a scientist with a strong background in computation, math, and physical or biological sciences to learn artificial intelligence methods. A background in machine learning and mass spectrometry is not required, but the successful applicant should program in python and understand both linear algebra and statistics. Coursework or research in biology and chemistry is a plus. The applicant will work closely with and be mentored by scientists well versed in machine learning and mass spectrometry. US citizenship is not required. NIST is a center for measurement excellence, and, as a result, has available for this research large sets of high quality data essential for deep learning. NIST also provides training and excellent computational support, including substantial GPU compute clusters. The successful applicant would have an opportunity to interact with the large community of chemists, biologists, physicists and computer scientists at NIST, and be encouraged to present their research in a variety of international meetings and publications.
