Data science is the backbone of our drug discovery pipeline. Not an afterthought.
Recursion is the clinical-stage biotechnology company industrializing drug discovery by decoding biology. Recursion leverages sophisticated machine-learning algorithms to distill from its dataset the Recursion Map, a collection of hundreds of billions of searchable inferences across biology and chemistry unconstrained by human bias.
Recursion’s creed -- to build a map of biology and follow this map to discover treatments to serve patients -- relies on our unique combination of high-throughput and high-dimensional biological experimentation with deep computational modeling to discover therapeutic starting points and rapidly progress them to the clinic.
The Recursion Map of Biology is a unique platform integrating genome-scale reverse genetics and chemical profiling -- with over 1 million unique biological perturbations profiled -- in a high-dimensional, uniform biological assay to predict tens of billions of relationships between biological perturbations and therapeutic candidates. The Senior Director, Drug Discovery position offers a unique opportunity to develop, guide, and implement the strategy to weave computation through the drug discovery process, from program ideation and initial hit selection in the Recursion Map, through molecular optimization, and culminating in transition to IND-enabling studies.
The Impact You’ll Make
In this role, you, your team, and your colleagues will:
This is a drug discovery-focused role and candidates are expected to be experienced in industrial drug discovery specifically. Experience in clinical development, post-marketing data science, or data analytics and infrastructure are valuable but not independently qualifying.
The Team You’ll Join
As Senior Director of Data Science, Drug Discovery, you will report to the VP, Data Science and lead our computational drug discovery efforts. You will collaborate with peer leaders in data science, biology, chemistry, and engineering to drive both present execution and future industrialization in both Recursion’s core therapeutic areas of oncology, neuroscience, fibrosis and future areas. You will lead teams focused in each therapeutic area, as well as application-focused teams bringing together innovations across therapeutic areas in service of Recursions high-level goals and long-term vision.
The Experience You'll Need
Recursion Pharmaceuticals is a digital biology company, developing a drug discovery platform and pipeline with machine learning. Salt Lake City, Utah, United States.
