Senior Machine Learning Scientist (26693)

Cambridge, Hybrid Working
circa £80k + excellent benefits

Design innovative deep learning algorithms

This is an excellent opportunity for a skilled researcher with extensive understanding of machine learning and deep learning used in the context of sensory artificial intelligence.

A thriving Cambridge company seek a Senior Machine Learning Scientist to assist in the innovation and evolution of their ground-breaking audio-related product. They offer a very competitive salary, excellent benefits and the opportunity for remote working.

The Senior Machine Learning Scientist will have demonstrable skills that they will be able to use to help solve real life problems. They will apply research and evaluation methodology efficiently and with foresight. As part of an energetic and enthusiastic team, they will enjoy bringing their own contributions to the table, as well as encouraging and mentoring junior members of the team to excel too. They will have excellent skills in Python and algorithm prototyping and ideally will have a real interest in developing deep learning solutions for DSP problems, such as audio, computer vision, or time series processing.

Essential skills and attributes

  • Either a Master’s degree or a PhD, and significant post-doc or commercial experience. It should include noteworthy achievements involving machine learning and deep learning in topics such as speech recognition, computer vision, or other AI involving sensory perceptions. Work on a signal processing use case, such as time series analysis or source separation would also be considered.
  • Deep understanding of machine learning and optimisation theory. For example, the capacity to formulate new loss functions or new architectures to address particular performance issues, or the capacity to justify the choice of existing solutions at the theoretical or mathematical level.
  • Programming, scripting and algorithm prototyping: Keras, Tensorflow, PyTorch, SciKit-Learn, Python.
  • Excellent communication skills.

Desirable attributes

  • Good knowledge of audio source separation, as well as machine learning aided audio filtering and generation.
  • Experience with multi-channel recording and multi-microphone applications, including beam-forming.
  • Familiarity with integrating a machine learning solution into a real-world product.
  • A good track record of academic publications or patent applications.

Full right to work in the UK without time limit or sponsorship will also be required.
