As a Human Genetics Scientist at Athletigen you will join a fast-paced and creative team in building a personalized genomics product people will love. A major part of our platform is generating content for our web application by mining genetics research papers for markers that affect athletic performance, human physiology, and other relevant traits. Your primary role will be to identify candidate markers and associated scientific literature that provide the best information to our users. You will then engage in translating scientific information into useful content for users in collaboration with other team members. As part of the Athletigen Scientific Team you also may be engaged in research collaborations with outside partners, engage in internal research, be involved in scientific publications, and participate in other content writing for end users.
The reason I liked this presentation so much is that it’s different. It’s not about extracting knowledge from genetics research papers or combing patient records for symptoms and diagnoses (those are impressive, but they are more plentiful). It’s about measuring something about patient-uttered language and helping diagnose potential medical problems. It’s using computational linguistics to create a virtual medical instrument, just as a stethoscope or X-ray machine is a medical instrument, to better see (or hear) potential medical conditions.
