Postdoctoral AI Researcher

$250-350K | PALO ALTO, CA

Chai is the fastest growing generative AI startup in Silicon Valley. Founded by a group of relentless algorithmic traders, our company seeks to challenge the status quo and push boundaries wherever they may exist. We place quantitative methods at the heart of what we do in order to realize what we believe to be the most ambitious goals in our industry.


We are looking to hire exceptional PhD and Postdoctoral scientific researchers who seek fresh challenges after completing their academic commitments. The ideal candidate would be:

  • A world-class academic, as evidenced by either an excellent PhD thesis or publications in high-calibre international peer-reviewed journals and conferences. We will judge this commensurate with career stage.
  • A naturally gifted software engineer, with experience in either a high-level language such as Python or a low-level one such as C++.


  • We work hard and have a high-velocity environment with lots of growth opportunities.
  • We value exceptional performance and continuous improvement. We believe that if you aren't constantly learning, you aren't growing.
  • You will be responsible and accountable for making high-impact decisions that determine Chai's future.


  • You will join our internal team of outstanding academics who have made significant contributions to challenging problems in scientific fields ranging from Cosmology to Number Theory.
  • You will spend at least 50% of your time working on internal Chai research projects. This includes collaborating with our engineers to build highly accurate statistical pipelines, as well as opportunities to explore the booming field of generative AI.


  • Hold Bachelors and Masters degrees in a hard-science discipline from world-leading institutions.
  • You must either hold, or be working towards, a PhD degree in a hard science. In the latter case, you must have defended your thesis and passed with no major corrections before the proposed start date of your employment at Chai.
  • You must be experienced in programming. This can be in any sensible language, and could be evidenced by contributions to open-source projects or code written for research articles.
