The Impact You’ll Make
As a Machine Learning Intern, you will contribute to building foundation models leveraging a range of data types including vision and other Omics that will power a diverse range of use cases in drug discovery. By leveraging your experience in machine learning, software engineering, infrastructure, and data, you will:
The Team You’ll Join
Recursion has built a unique dataset (over 1 million unique biological perturbations profiled in a high-dimensional biological assay, making up nearly 20 PB of highly-relatable data) and a unique approach to phenotypic drug discovery using our inference-based Recursion Map to predict tens of billions of relationships between disease models and therapeutic candidates. Additionally, we’ve generated large-scale Omics datasets to complement our phenomics data.
You will join a team of machine learning engineers and scientists working on building foundation models that power a range of use cases at Recursion. Our team’s recent preprint, Masked autoencoders are scalable learners of cellular morphology, highlights the success of this approach at capturing biological signals in microscopy images. We’re continuing to push the boundaries of foundation models by leveraging even larger datasets with additional modalities and more compute, leveraging one of the industry's most advanced supercomputers. The capabilities you bring to the team will help us scale our foundation models and develop net-new capabilities that don’t currently exist!
The Experience You’ll Need
How You’ll be Supported
The Values That We Hope You Share:
Recursion spends time and energy connecting every aspect of work to these values. They aren’t static, but regularly discussed and questioned because we make decisions rooted in those values in our day-to-day work. You can read more about our values and how we live them every day here.
More About Recursion
Recursion is a clinical stage TechBio company leading the space by decoding biology to industrialize drug discovery. Enabling its mission is the Recursion OS, a platform built across diverse technologies that continuously expands one of the world’s largest proprietary biological and chemical datasets. Recursion leverages sophisticated machine-learning algorithms to distill from its dataset a collection of trillions of searchable relationships across biology and chemistry unconstrained by human bias. By commanding massive experimental scale — up to millions of wet lab experiments weekly — and massive computational scale — owning and operating one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world, Recursion is uniting technology, biology and chemistry to advance the future of medicine.
Recursion is headquartered in Salt Lake City, where it is a founding member of BioHive, the Utah life sciences industry collective. Recursion also has offices in Toronto, Montreal and the San Francisco Bay Area. Learn more at www.recursion.com, or connect on Twitter and LinkedIn.
