Job Description

The successful candidate will work with Prof Chen Yu Zong on developing deep learning models for prediction of pharmacokinetics properties to facilitate drug discovery under a project on Deep learning for drug discovery. The RF is expected to develop various machine learning and deep learning algorithms to predict pharmacokinetics (PK) properties of drug-like small molecules. Properties involved in all PK stages like absorption, bioavailability, distribution, metabolism, and excretion will be modelled and predicted. The performance of developed models needs to be benchmarked against state-of-art machine learning and deep learning models and furthermore tested on experimental datasets. This will be a six-months job contract, based in Department of Pharmacy, National University of Singapore.
