Machine Learning Engineer AI Center


Rozzano, IT, 20089


The Machine Learning Engineer has experience in machine learning and deep learning applied to structured and unstructured medical data.

Your main contribution will be focused on developing models to answer clinical questions with evidence in a R&D setting using data from the electronic health record. You will routinely interface with clinical stakeholders to evaluate KPI, update the modelling strategy and course-correct unverified hypothesis. You will be developing libraries to share with your team and leverage already existing ones.

The ML Engineer will develop and deploy AI solutions while also improving already existing pipelines.

The candidate will also contribute to developing new technologies for data synthesis and digital twins using a wide variety of machine learning and deep learning methods.

The AI Center of Humanitas is focused in research in the field of Artificial Intelligence applied in healthcare. Research and development areas include predictive and decision-support systems based on data-driven model (ML/DL models) to optimize clinical processes and ultimately improve the quality of patient care. We are a team of multidisciplinary scientists who work day by day on e-health and AI projects, by collaborating with clinical staff (doctors, nurses, researchers) and management staff.
