BenchSci is on a mission to accelerate the pace of biomedical discoveries.
Today scientists are faced with a major challenge: up to 50% of their experiments fail because of the poor quality of biological compounds. Before using a compound, scientists review thousands of scientific papers in order to identify those that have been proven to “work” by the scientific community. This is a long, rigorous process, taking hours, sometimes even weeks.

Enter BenchSci. We are creating a cutting edge technology that automates this process and
allows scientists to achieve biomedical discoveries faster. Our technology decodes scientific
papers and extracts the crucial information that scientists need. With BenchSci, scientists can now find biological compounds that have been proven to work within seconds.
If you are excited about machine learning, science, marketplaces, startups, and building cool stuff, we want to talk to you!

What we are looking for
A talented, creative, and ambitious full stack developer who will be instrumental in the
development of our cutting edge machine learning search platform for scientific products.

Responsibilities include: UI development with ReactJS, and backend development with big data platforms such as Hadoop and Spark. As we are constantly evolving our technologically, comfort with fastpace changes in toolsets a must. Our ideal candidate has a Bachelor’s degree in computer science / computer engineering or higher , and possesses the following qualities:

● Comfortable with fast paced technology adaptation
● Innovative and proactive
● Expertise in Python, Javascript, Java

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

Course enrollment for Spring 2018

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

For students trying to add CS courses, we encourage you to review the course selection page.

COURSE ENROLLMENT
In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
1. Students who selected courses but something went wrong because of: enrollment capacity in a course **a time conflict **an academic enrolment block was applied after course selectiondropping or failing a course after course selection** Please re…
