Here at Recursion, we combine experimental biology, automation and artificial intelligence to quickly and efficiently identify treatments for human diseases. To accommodate a consistent flow of experimental output, our Operations Team is hiring a Lab Operations Associate to help keep our laboratories organized and promote a clean and safe environment for our team.


We recently tripled the square footage of our lab environments and have a need for someone who has the ability to accommodate this growth. As the Lab Operations Associate, you will get hands-on experience in the design and development of the operations of our future labs.

You’ll join a dedicated and enthusiastic team that has an eye for safety and an appetite for success. On any given day, you will assist with deliveries, inventory procedures, conduct equipment and lab audits, help with laboratory equipment maintenance, maintain lab safety standards, and help with lab administrative tasks.

You will:

  • Impact A well-run lab is essential in ensuring that the hundreds of experiments being done weekly are happening in an organized manner. Your ability to make sound judgements, will guide the consistency of our platform.
  • Organize This is a role that requires an (almost) obsessive passion for organization. You will assist the Lab Manager receiving, tracking, and organizing sensitive and high-value materials daily.
  • Pivot You will manage a variety of different tasks and will need to shift and adapt at a moment’s notice.

Recursion combines experimental biology and bioinformatics with artificial intelligence to quickly and efficiently identify treatments for human diseases. From its initial and continued focus on drug repurposing to treat rare diseases, Recursion has now broadened its platform to explore many other indications, including aging, inflammation, infectious disease, and immunology. Recursion’s ultimate vision is to use technology to build a robust and reliable map of human cellular biology, which would enable a radical shift in the pace and scale at which new treatments could benefit patients.
