About Aqemia 

Aqemia is a deep-tech start-up in drug discovery. We are building on breakthrough physics theory and unique software to find promising drug candidates among millions of molecules.

Aqemia's software predicts the affinity between drug candidates and therapeutic targets responsible for diseases. The speed and accuracy of our software allows to screen up to million molecules in few weeks.

Our ambition is to disrupt upstream drug discovery through a combination of our proprietary physics-based technology and machine learning to generate innovative drugs.

If this sounds exciting to you, come and join us ! 

Job description

Aqemia's technology is based on a disruptive physics theory enabling fast and accurate calculation of affinity between molecules.

You will develop generative algorithms to design molecules, guided by our proprietary scoring of affinity. You will participate to a shift of paradigm in drug discovery: from database screening to de novo drug design.

Your role: Develop AI algorithms to generate relevant molecules

Your day to day responsibilities:

  • Code and test algorithms for molecules generation

  • Leverage available data and build relevant scorings to guide generation

  • Iterate with drug hunters to improve molecules relevance

Preferred experience


Your profile:

  • You have 2-3 years experience in AI / Machine learning development

    • Ideally on reinforcement learning, RNN, LSTM 

    • Based on complex data e.g., NLP, complex image
