Recursion is the clinical-stage biotechnology company industrializing drug discovery by decoding biology. Recursion leverages sophisticated machine-learning algorithms to infer biological relationships. By commanding massive experimental scale — up to millions of wet lab experiments weekly — and massive computational scale — owning and operating one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world, Recursion is uniting technology, biology and chemistry to advance the future of medicine.
Eight years ago, Recursion was manufacturing and staining plates by hand. Today, we’re able to process and scan more than a million experiments every week. In the last year we’ve been able to take a compound from screen to preclinical data package in almost six months and put multiple molecules in the clinic with line of sight to our impact on patients. Next, we are building a Digital Chemistry team to help translate biology inferences to discovery leads and advance pharmaceutical projects in unprecedented fashion. Our drug discovery strategies are map and data-driven rather than target and exec-driven, revealing destinations you might never have considered. It is an audacious goal, but it isn’t a dream or science fiction. We’re already doing it!
While we offer cutting-edge tools and an amazing lab, the secret sauce is our people. Our organization structure and culture isn't driven by politics or ego, it is designed first and foremost to help you do your best work. We live and work by values that we see as the strategic differentiators that give us a competitive advantage, supporting better and faster work without burnout and encouraging us to make leaps where others take steps. This is a place where people in every role and every level make the bold bets that create large leaps forward on a regular basis.
The Impact You’ll Make
As a Cheminformatics Data Scientist you will be an essential member of drug project teams, working with biologists and chemists to advance candidate drugs through screening and development, and with other data scientists on improving our algorithms for drug discovery. You will bring your unique approach and innovative thinking in developing scalable solutions in drug discovery that immediately impact decisions. In this role, you will:
The Team You’ll Join
You will be an essential member of the Recursion Digital Chemistry team. The Digital Chemistry Team is an empowered, execution-minded group of drug discovery professionals responsible for translating Recursion's innovative science to patients through hit identification and lead optimization activities. Our desire to make a difference and contribute to our mission of radically improving lives drives everything we do. In your role, you will collaborate cross-functionally within the Chemistry, Biology and Data Science teams to ensure successful planning and execution of discovery operations.
The Experience You’ll Need
The Values That We Hope You Share:
Recursion spends time and energy connecting every aspect of work to these values. They aren’t static, but regularly discussed and questioned because we make decisions rooted in those values in our day-to-day work. You can read more about our values and how we live them every day
