Deep Genomics is a Toronto-based startup company that is building an AI-powered discovery and development platform to significantly expand the universe of medicines available for genetically-defined diseases. Founded in 2015, Deep Genomics brings together a multidisciplinary team of world-leading experts in machine learning, genomics, chemistry, and biology. Together we are on a mission to rapidly discover and develop oligonucleotide drugs for the treatment of patients with severe disorders of the liver, central nervous system, and eye.
We are looking for an organized, ambitious, and hard-working research technician with extensive molecular biology experience. Working alongside both computational and wet-lab scientists, you will experimentally validate genome-based therapeutics in cell culture systems and animal models. In addition, you will help design, execute, and troubleshoot novel high-throughput experiments to improve our computational platform.
An undergraduate degree in the life sciences or a related field.
A minimum of 3 years of hands-on experience with standard molecular biology techniques. For example, bacterial and mammalian cell culture, nucleic acid and protein isolation, PCR, cloning, etc. Previous experience working with primary cells and/or organoids is highly desirable.
Superlative organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills.
A flexible attitude to job roles as well as a willingness to contribute wherever needed. The ideal candidate will take full ownership of their core responsibilities, and will be comfortable with those responsibilities evolving with the changing needs of the company.
Comfort working with limited supervision in a fast-paced and rapidly growing work environment.
Previous experience working in a high-growth and/or biotechnology company is desirable.
What we offer:
A highly competitive salary and meaningful equity compensation.
Exceptional opportunities for learning and growth.
A bright, collegial, highly-motivated team working at the intersection of the most exciting areas of science and technology.
Deep Genomics thanks all applicants, however only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
Deep Genomics welcomes and encourages applications from people with disabilities. Accommodations are available on request for candidates taking part in all aspects of the selection process.
About Deep Genomics
Deep Genomics is using artificial intelligence to build a new universe of life-saving genetic therapies.
The future of medicine will rely on artificial intelligence, because biology is too complex for humans to understand. At Deep Genomics, our geneticists, molecular biologists and chemists develop new ways of detecting and treating disease using our biologically accurate artificial intelligence technology.
