At Recursion, our mission is to leverage automated biology and computational methods to accelerate the discovery of therapeutics for patients with thousands of diseases.
As part of our team, your high-level job description has only one item: do whatever is necessary to help us progress in identifying cures for diseases. We hire the best, and trust that they are usually in the best position to decide what to try next.
What you'll do
Our approach to scalable, high-throughput biology allows us to rapidly find potential treatments for many diseases at a rate upwards of one disease per month. Our innovation team identifies new cell types and high throughput assays to advance the therapeutic boundaries of our platform, then performs platform-enabling pilot experiments to validate new assays before handing them off to the high throughput biology team.
As a Research Scientist on the Innovation team, you’ll work with a team of scientists to generate ideas and insights that will drive Recursion’s future growth. Your role will involve identifying new assays and therapeutic areas for expansion of the platform, exploring the feasibility of integration of assays into our platform, then piloting human cellular assays. You will work cross-functionally with data scientists to design and pilot assays of strategic interest to Recursion and our partners. You will be the in-house expert on new biological assays and techniques of immediate relevance to our platform (e.g. CRISPR) and will lead efforts validate the utility of these technologies.
Competitive salary and equity in Recursion are part of the deal, as are healthcare and any other benefits the company introduces in the future.
