About the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative is dedicated to advancing human potential and promoting equal opportunity through technology, grantmaking, impact investing, policy, and advocacy work. We look for bold ideas — regardless of structure and stage — and help them scale by pairing world-class engineers with subject matter experts to build tools that accelerate the pace of social progress.

We engage directly in the communities we serve because no one understands how to address our society’s challenges better than those who live them everyday. These partners help us identify problems and opportunities, learn fast and iterate toward our audacious goals for the next century. We strive to be humble, empathetic and scrappy life-long learners who work collaboratively to develop community-centered solutions.

About the Job

Our mission is to support science and technology that will help make it possible to cure, prevent, or manage all diseases by the end of the century. Interdisciplinary teams of physicians, biologists, computational scientists, and engineers can expand our understanding of the human body and illness — the very science behind medicine. CZI fosters collaboration between scientists and engineers, develops tools and technologies, and builds support for basic scientific research.

The ideal candidate will have a background in a quantitative or technical field and experience working with large data sets and making data-driven decisions. If you are mission-driven, entrepreneurial, and committed to building transformative technologies, we want to hear from you.

Meta is a product that helps biomedical researchers discover literature that’s important to their work and delivers it in real-time to their personal feeds. Meta uses artificial intelligence to organize and track over 67 million biomedical diseases, genes, proteins, techniques, researchers, journals, papers, preprints, and more—including full coverage of PubMed and bioRxiv. We believe that the complexity and scale of scientific knowledge is limiting how quickly researchers can understand, navigate and quickly make powerful connections across what is know. This is one of the fundamental challenges hindering the rate of discovery in basic scientific research.

As Data Scientist for Meta, you’ll be helping bring Meta to the broader community of researchers around the world. If you want to make a difference and help accelerate innovation in science, come and join us!
