Job Description

We've created 13 petabytes of purpose-fit biological data. It interests you?

At Recursion, our mission is to decode biology to help radically improve our lives by industrializing drug discovery. This mission includes building the most scalable drug discovery platform in the history of the biopharmaceutical industry through a combination of biology and laboratory expertise, automation engineering and computational tools. peak. To this end, we have produced and continue to produce one of the largest biological datasets in existence in our laboratories – images of billions of cells subjected to millions of biological and chemical perturbations, and a growing set of transcriptional profiles generated by next-generation sequencing.

Our team is working to solve some of the biggest issues that pose threats to human health today. With the goal of contributing to the treatment of hundreds of diseases, we have assembled a team of data scientists specializing in computer science, physics, biology, mathematics, applied statistics and more. Together, we design tools and methods to transform our experimental data into treatments for pathologies that affect the lives of countless people. Join us as we decode biology and help radically improve our lives while playing the most important role of your entire career.

A bold goal, but one that is not science fiction. This is our raison d'être!

Your impact

  • Design, train and evaluate models. You will solve complex drug discovery problems by designing fit-for-purpose models and statistical data distributions for machine learning from our massive in-house datasets – over 13 petabytes of cell imaging data, to which s Add our growing chemical, transcriptomic, and proteomic datasets — and you'll train those models using our on-site NVIDIA A100 SuperPODs. You will work in collaboration with biologists, chemists, automation engineers, data engineers and other scientists to refine these models, your processes may generate more data, until your models lead to a productive solution and reliable.
  • Create biological maps. You will play a vital role in fulfilling Recursion's mission to decode biology for the radical betterment of our lives by transforming our massive datasets into biological maps of human diseases, upon which the developers of drugs to rapidly and precisely develop optimized small molecule therapies targeting hundreds of diseases.
