Research Engineer in Deep Learning

DeepLife is hiring!


DeepLife is an early stage startup founded in 2019 by Jonathan Baptista and Jean-Baptiste Morlot, backed by international investors, developing the first SaaS platform for cellular engineering.

While we are able to design and build incredibly complex mechanical engines, engineering biological systems, such as cells, remains a challenge. However, recent technological improvements, notably in biochemistry, recently enabled the construction of databases with millions of quantitative cell activity measures, covering multiple diseases.

The DeepLife team develops a SaaS platform combining state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms on multi-omics sequencing data, public and private cell atlases, and proprietary deep learning-based cell engineering tools. Our goal is to supplement in vitro testing with in silico simulations, and rapidly discover molecular triggers to efficiently engineer cell behavior.

We are working closely with biotech and pharmaceutical companies to accelerate their drug discovery processes. We are also collaborating actively with the academic community by publishing papers and providing open access to our platform’s features and data.
