WHAT WE DO
Poised at the crossroads of biology and computation, Recursion is disrupting the pharmaceutical industry’s approach to drug discovery. Our unique platform leverages the most advanced high-throughput scalable biology, automation, and artificial intelligence to rapidly discover treatments for rare diseases, inflammatory diseases, immuno-oncology, cardiovascular diseases of aging, and more.
Using genetic manipulation, we create disease models in relevant human cell types, then use high throughput imaging coupled with automated image analysis to identify compounds that reverse cellular disease phenotypes. This approach creates incredibly rich data sets and is agnostic to preconceived notions of what the cellular disease phenotype should be. Once we have identified candidate treatments for a particular disorder, our Target and Compound Validation team develops a literature-based understanding of the disease, then uses automated and traditional wet-lab approaches to determine if our treatments rescue known disease phenotypes.
HOW YOU’LL CONTRIBUTE
The high-level job description has only one item: do whatever is necessary to help us progress in identifying treatments for diseases. If you are a Research Associate who is motivated to have the largest impact on biological science in the shortest amount of time, you have just found your dream job! Your work as part of our Target and Compound Validation team—using independent cell and molecular techniques—will significantly increase the speed of our drug discovery platform and will help us achieve our mission of discovering 100 rare disease treatments by 2025.
The team's key mission is to use disease-specific assays to experimentally assess drug candidates in order to prioritize or deprioritize them for pre-clinical work. This role is ideal for someone who can think about how to innovate and improve processes, think creatively, and work well in a team environment. In this role you will work to answer some pretty interesting questions: How do we scale and automate our Validation platform to handle many disease and drug targets coming off of our screening pipeline? What extensions of our Validation platform will yield the most useful data (e.g. new cell types, new/more equipment, alternative techniques, etc.)?
For this role, we are looking for researchers who are eager to:
