About Unlearn
Recent progress in artificial intelligence coupled with a growing resource of longitudinal patient data from historical clinical trials and real world sources provides an unprecedented opportunity to transform clinical trials and speed the development of new medicines.  

Unlearn is a science-first company that has invented the first machine learning platform for creating Digital Twins of patients in clinical trials — comprehensive simulations that answer “what would likely happen to this patient if he/she were randomized to the control group?”.

Using information from Digital Twins to estimate treatment effects reduces required sample sizes, increase statistical power, and provides patient-level treatment response information.

It’s about increasing confidence in trial results. 

It’s about bringing new medicines to patients faster.

It’s about time.


Your Role at Unlearn
Do you enjoy using data science and software to solve complex challenges? 

Unlearn.AI pioneers computational methods to help patients get life-saving therapies more quickly. As an early employee at Unlearn, you will have the opportunity to shape the future of how data are used in clinical science and join a world-class team of computational scientists.

Day-to-day work will include:

    • Using our powerful, proprietary software tools to transform clinical trial data and electronic health data into tidy datasets that enable machine learning models of disease progression.
    • Researching outcome measures, biomarkers, and other data that are measured in clinical trials. 
    • Creating and editing documentation and processes to ensure quality in Unlearn’s datasets and resulting products.
    • Providing feedback to the data infrastructure engineering team to improve software used for data processing.
    • Collaborating with internal and external scientists to create prognostic models of disease progression, analyze clinical trials, and publish scientific results.

You'll likely have:

    • B.S. in Computer Science, Statistics, or a related field.
    • Advanced degree such as an M.S. or Ph.D. is a plus.
    • 3+ years industry experience in data science or a related role.
    • Experience with the analysis and use of clinical data.
    • Proficient in Python (including data science tools such as numpy, pandas, and sklearn) and collaborative software development (e.g., git, using clean coding styles).
    • Strong analytical and organizational skills.
    • Excellent communication and collaboration skills.
    • The flexibility and adaptability necessary to be an early employee at an ambitious startup.
