Recursion is a clinical-stage biotechnology company decoding biology by integrating technological innovations across biology, chemistry, automation, data science and engineering to radically improve the lives of patients and industrialize drug discovery. Our team is working to solve some of the hardest, most meaningful problems facing human health today. Come join us in our mission to decode biology to radically improve lives, while doing the most impactful work of your life.
The Impact You’ll Make
You will lead multiple computational and/or therapeutics projects from launch to preclinical development to bring new therapeutics to patients. You will be at the forefront of developing new approaches to oncology therapeutics discovery and reimagining small molecule discovery from first principles using Recursion’s massive data capabilities.
Discover and develop new analytics and workflows for leveraging Recursion’s unique capacity to perform >1 million experiments per week for oncology target ID, program nomination and ML-enabled biomarker development. Work on complex biomarker development for novel therapeutics in areas such as colorectal, breast cancer, and others.
Deliver multiple new computational approaches and therapeutic programs into Recursion’s oncology pipeline at an accelerated pace. You’ll iterate quickly from ideation to validation on multiple projects.
Synthesize diverse datasets (internal and external) toward accelerating insight- and program-generation from Recursion’s phenomics data. You’ll strategically define novel datasets to advance our capabilities and answer critical questions.
Collaborate cross-functionally with Recursion’s data science and ML teams to further advance ML infrastructure and phenomics data capabilities.
The Team You’ll Join
We are building an interdisciplinary modern oncology group centered on machine learning and inference-based discovery from first principles. The group is a bold, agile, interdisciplinary collective of drug discovery and machine learning scientists deeply focused on the singular goal of bringing new cancer therapeutics to patients at an accelerated pace. You will lead project strategy and execution within a small group of project leaders, and collaborate extensively with data scientists, chemists, engineers and biologists throughout the organization and externally, to advance milestones and provide insights to further advance Recursion’s capabilities. Essential attributes to this role include a bold, execution-first attitude and passion for deploying rigorous science to end cancer. You will report to SVP, Translational Medicine.
