About MXM (mensxmachina.org)

The MensXMachina (MXM) group is a research team of about 15 undergraduates, graduate students, post-docs and researchers that focuses on machine learning and artificial intelligence for data analysis, with an emphasis on biomedical data. We maintain numerous national and international collaborations with biology and medical groups in synergistic, funded research programs. At MXM we go beyond the data and develop cutting-edge algorithms and software for big-data predictive analytics. We have pioneered technology for scalable, accurate, and principled variable selection methods and Probabilistic Network learning, attracting several national and EU grants.

Job Description

We are looking for skilled Software developers/engineers with a strong background in web applications to grow with our development team.
