Creating A New Universe Of Genetic Medicines

About Us

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.

About the role

We are seeking a highly motivated data scientist (positions open in multiple groups) with strong programming and scripting skills to help us advance our therapeutic programs to the next level. The successful candidate will work in a multidisciplinary team of biologists and computational scientists, and take on tasks spanning analysis and visualization of experimental data, processing of genomics data, designing antisense oligonucleotide compounds, and supporting pre-clinical development programs. The ideal candidate would have a good understanding of molecular biology, human genetics, and statistics.

What you'll do?

  • Analyze high-throughput experiments to assess data quality and identify hits.
  • Build tools to streamline design of antisense oligonucleotide compounds.
  • Support pre-clinical development programs with computational analyses

What do you bring ?

  • BSc in Computer Science, Statistics, Bioinformatics, or related fields and two years post-graduate experience, or MSc in the related fields.
  • Solid knowledge of Python, and some knowledge of R is desirable.
  • Solid statistics knowledge with ability to perform various statistical analyses independently.
  • Understanding of basic concepts in molecular biology and human genetics.
  • Comfort working in a fast-paced and rapidly growing work environment

What we offer ?

  • A highly competitive salary and meaningful equity compensation (ESOPs).
  • A wide array of company-paid benefits.
  • Exceptional opportunities for learning and growth working alongside the world’s best team.
  • An opportunity to work alongside a bright, collegial, highly motivated team working at the intersection of the most exciting areas of science and technology.
Deep Genomics encourages applications from all backgrounds who seek the opportunity to build the world's leading AI-driven genetic medicine company. 

If you have a disability or special need, accommodation is 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.
