Baidu Research Big Data Lab (, Silicon Valley, is looking for research scientists and engineers with strong background in machine learning, natural language processing, data mining, computer vision and system engineering. Our mission is to build next generation technologies for better connecting billions of users to services, e.g., healthcare/medical, financial services etc. As a research scientist at Baidu, you will be uniquely positioned in our team to work on very challenging problems and to push forward frontiers of AI technologies to transform business and automate different aspects of our daily life.

Big Data Lab in Silicon Valley has an agile team of scientists and experienced machine learning practitioners. We have been building the most-intelligent medical robotic, which is the intelligent core of Baidu Medical Brain.  We are working on applying advanced machine learning technologies to power Baidu Medical Brain to serve billions of users.

At BDL, we will provide:

  • An environment for you to learn cutting edge technologies in large-scale data mining, machine learning, deep learning, NLP, computer vision and robotics.
  • Opportunities to learn state-of-the-art industry application of machine learning technologies at massive scale.
  • Opportunities to mining on huge application-specific proprietary data.

Here is what we’d like to see in you:

  • Experience in at least one of the following (but not limited to):

    • Machine learning: deep learning, large-scale optimization, computer vision, probabilistic inference, graph model, etc.

    • Natural language processing: labeling and parsing, text understanding, question answering and dialog systems, knowledge extraction, representation and reasoning, etc.

    • Data mining: knowledge discovery from huge-size, complex data

    • Computer vision: image classification, detection, segmentation, etc.

    • System design and build: Design and build solid AI systems

  • Strong analytical skills (probability, algebra, optimization, etc.).

  • Ability to come up with practical algorithms and write high quality code quickly in a programming language (such as C++, Java, Python).

  • Background on healthcare/medicine/finance/banking is a plus.

Culture Fit:

  • Mission alignment: If you want to be part of a team to accomplish this great mission, we will provide you the best possible platform to achieve this goal and build up a successful career.

  • Self-motivated: We work best with people that are driven, motivated, and aspire to greatness. Are you the sort of person that, if you had time on your hands, will independently find interesting and useful things to do?

  • Eager to learn: We are eager to see you learn new skills and grow. But learning is hard work and this is something we hope you want to do.

  • Team orientation: We work in small, fast­-moving teams. We don't believe in lone wolves. We watch out for each other and go after big goals together as a team
