We are seeking for a Machine Learning Engineer to develop machine learning models related to predicting the outc ome of computational biology and chemistry simulations , as well as the relationship between experimental measurements and related computational simulations. The successful candidate will be working in a multidisciplinary team to explore and create methods for better understanding the correlation between the computationally predicted structure of proteins with the corresponding experimentally derived structures.
Reporting to the C hief Technology Officer , the M achine Learning E ngineer will work with a diverse-skilled team including software engineers, geneticists , biochemists , and other machine learning engineers to understand and predict relationships between genomic and proteomic simulations and experimental studies.
POSITION AND PROJECT OVERVIEW
We are seeking a Postdoc Fellowship Scholar to commit to a one-year postdoctoral position, funded under the MITACS Elevate program, which is renewable for another year, depending on project progress. The project is a collaboration between Terramera, Agriculture and Agri-food Canada (AAFC), and the University of British Columbia (UBC), and studies will be conducted in the AAFC Summerland Research and Development centre and the facilities of both UBC and Terramera in Vancouver, BC.
Wheat production suffers from three different types of rust fungi: Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici causing stem (or black) rust, P. triticina, causing leaf (or brown) rust, and P. striiformis f. sp. tritici , causing stripe (or yellow) rust. These rust diseases continue to cause major yield losses in Canada annually, and in many other wheat-producing areas worldwide. Fungicides are used in the management of rust diseases, but efficacy is limited by many...
