Data scientist


This is a Full-time position in Long Beach, CA posted December 17, 2019.

COMPANY INFORMATION ALTO NEUROSCIENCE altoneuroscience.comAlto Neuroscience is a private company headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Alto is developing a new generation of neural biomarker-based diagnostic tests and personalized treatments for use in psychiatry, based on a platform built from data aggregated at scale and proprietary artificial intelligence analysis tools.

The team combines world-leading neuroscientists and business executives with experience commercializing products for the brain.There currently is no objective way to diagnose psychiatric illness, nor to identify which treatment is best for an individual patient.

Treatment selection is presently done by trial-and-error as there are no reliable blood tests nor objective brain measures, for example, that can inform these decisions.

This results in clinical care that is highly inefficient and costly.

Alto is focused on addressing this need through finding novel brain biomarkers that can define actionable subtypes of psychiatric illnesses, or inform the development and deployment of new treatments.

To that end, we are building a platform capable of identifying a pipeline of new brain-based candidate biomarkers that can underpin new product opportunities.ROLE SUMMARY DATA SCIENTISTUnder direct supervision of the chief technology and medical officers, the Data Scientist will complete programming tasks within a developing IT infrastructure surrounding 1) large-scale clinical and biomarker datasets and 2) incoming data from prospective clinical studies.

Work will include developing data processing workflows, primarily in python, for the following tasks:A cloud-based, real-time system for data management, quality control, pre-processing, feature extraction, and machine learning from a multimodal set of brain signalsAutomated deidentification and extraction of relevant signals from electronic medical records (EMRs)Correlating brain signals with clinical information using machine learningWork closely with Alto’s data science and medical teams to deliver novel diagnostic and therapeutic solutions for brain healthROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIESBuild and deploy machine learning models for brain signal-based prediction tasksDevelop visualization tools to interpret resultsDaily responsibilities will include algorithmic design and implementation, data analysis, coding/debugging, troubleshooting, and health monitoring/alertingQUALIFICATIONS AND EDUCATION REQUIREMENTSDegree in Computer Science, Information Systems Management, Engineering, or other quantitative fields2+ years of Python programming/development experience1+ years of machine learning experienceBe a team player while being able to work independentlyShare a desire to improve mental healthcare deliveryCoding experience in linux/CentOS environmentDeep understanding of predictive modeling, machine-learning, clustering and classification techniques, and algorithmsFluency in a programming language (Python, C,C++, Java, SQL)Good to have: Cloud development experience, MATLAB, and EEG data analysis experienceIf interested, please email with your CV and answers to the following questions:1) Why you want to work at Alto2) What unique skill you could bring to Alto to help us in our efforts to improve mental health through the development of brain biomarkers and machine learning3) What do you consider as one or two of the most overlooked or undervalued analysis techniques for EEG in psychiatry and why?4) What resources do you feel could have significantly helped in your previous position or analysis and why (pick one or two)5) What are the top two things that you are looking for in your next role and what do you expect from Alto were we to offer you the position.
