Computer Vision Scientist – 6 months Internship

12.05.2022

ImVitro is looking for a mission-driven Computer Vision Scientist Intern to join the Paris-based company to tackle a problem that concerns around 15% of couples worldwide: infertility. The ideal candidate is a final year computer science master student with a strong interest in AI and in the medical field, available for a 6 months intership starting as early as June.

Today, one of the main medical solutions to infertility is in vitro fertilization (IVF). And yet, its success rates only come close to 20-30% in Europe, which means patients have to repeat this difficult journey all too often, or give it up altogether. At ImVitro, we minimize the number of cycles patients have to go through by personalizing medical decisions to each patient’s journey. We apply AI to a variety of data that is routinely used by doctors to make complex and multifactorial decisions, starting with videos of developing embryos. We predict the impact of these customized decisions on success rates, thus making IVF more transparent, robust and reproducible. Our vision is to create an easier path to parenthood to ensure families can take their planning into their own hands.

ImVitro is an early stage Deep Tech start-up backed by US & European VC funds. It was founded in August 2019 and has already created strong partnerships with fertility centers. The company has been backed by several accelerator programs  (Entrepreneur First, DeepTech4Good, Wilco, Agoranov) and was selected as one of Station F’s Future 40 2019 start-ups. 

Role and responsibilities

ImVitro is looking for an computer vision scientist intern that will help us bring our AI to the next level. By joining the R&D Team, you will work closely on ambitious cutting-edge research topics in Computer Vision on video classification.

During your internship, you will study the literature and implement new architectures in PyTorch to improve the performance of our classification algorithm on videos of developing embryos. You will monitor and compare experiments, gather the results and present them regularly to the team. You will have weekly touchpoints with a computer vision scientist from the R&D team.

This is a unique opportunity to be directly exposed to a fast-paced, demanding and exciting entrepreneurial ecosystem.
