The 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.
Recursion is focused on conducting scalable biology, and leveraging computational approaches to extract maximum value from every dollar we spend in the laboratory. As such, we rapidly find potential new treatments for diseases - currently at a rate of more than 1 per week. You will work with a small team of other scientists and technicians to evaluate and prioritize candidates for further study.
Imagine this job as a mini-dissertation on multiple projects every year. You'll need to read-up on a disease for which we have identified a lead, decide on which assay(s) can most rapidly give us more or less confidence on one of our hits, and then execute those assays as rapidly as possible. The goal is to identify as many treatments for as many diseases in as short a time as possible, and so organization and and ability to prioritize are essential. You can expect to be working on each disease/drug for at most 1-2 months, and you should expect to be working on multiple projects at once - variety is the spice of life! You can expect to have at least one technician under your guidance on a relatively immediate basis (within 3-6 months of starting), and we expect the team to grow rapidly in the coming years.
Competitive salary and equity in Recursion are part of the deal, as are healthcare and any other benefits the company introduces in the future.
