About us
Machine Medicine Technologies (MMT) uses computer vision and computational statistics to enhance the neurological assessment of patients. Our first product, KELVIN, allows assessments of motor dysfunction conditions to be performed, recorded and used both faster and better than has ever previously been possible. KELVIN is already in use at clinical sites across several countries to support routine patient care and clinical trials. MMT aims to build the platform into a generalised tool for patient selection, surgical planning and device programming for machine brain interfacing, a revolutionary therapeutic innovation. 

About you
You are an ambitious and capable machine learning scientist, with direct experience developing probabilistic graphical models (e.g. hierarchical Hidden Markov Models), preferably in a biomedical context. You have a strong research background, either in an academic or industrial lab. You are conversant with the relevant branches of mathematical statistics. You care about impact and want to do work that matters.
List of main duties and responsibilities:

  • Applying probabilistic graphical models to measure biomarkers
  • Conducting research and authoring academic papers 
  • Contributing to our research strategy
  • Keeping up to date with relevant research


  • Strong understanding of probabilistic graphical models (eg. HMMs)
  • Demonstrable experience applying probabilistic graphical models to real world problems
  • BSc, MSc in relevant quantitative subject (statistics, mathematical engineering, etc)
  • Good communication and data visualization skills
  • Experience with core Python data science packages (numpy, pandas, sklearn)


  • Publications at top ML conferences/journals
  • PhD (ideally in probabilistic graphical models)
  • Previous experience in the biomedical sector
  • Experience with at least one deep learning framework (PyTorch or TensorFlow)
  • Familiarity with git, bash and coding best practices.
  • Familiarity with cloud infrastructure (AWS EC2, S3, Batch) 

Company Culture
A fast-moving startup, with an energetic and dynamic team, looking to disrupt the MedTech industry with AI. Our employees are encouraged to take on the sort of career development opportunities that cannot be found at larger, more established, companies. We are in the highly regulated medical device industry, so our engineering team has to have an even greater focus on quality, usability and versatility. We also like to blow off steam, whether that’s playing a few rounds of table tennis in the office, or arranging an online gaming session.
