Across the healthcare continuum, there is a shared common concern regarding rising drug spend and drug pricing. EQRx’s innovative business model addresses the profound need for a more collaborative approach across the ecosystem to solve the challenges of patient access to innovative medicine at radically lower prices.

Kent Rogers Chief Customer Officer

EQRx believes responsibility can be revolutionary. Want to make a difference while advancing your career? Come join a team that is working towards our bold mission of developing innovative medicines at radically low prices to help people get the medicines they need.

What You’ll Do

As a key contributor in the building of a digitally-native life sciences company, you will determine strategies for the use of novel computational techniques to design, refine, and select novel drug candidates. You will lead EQRx’s capabilities in chemoinformatics and computational chemistry, integrating closely with our Rx Creation team. You will be a linchpin in efforts to extract consistent meaning from complex chemical, biological, and medical data sources, using modern machine learning techniques to synthesize experiments and the literature to rapidly generate and identify novel molecular binders and to optimize their ADME + Toxicity properties.

You will develop tools, techniques, and data products for integration of these results into EQRx’s drug creation, preclinical experimentation, and clinical trialing. You will provide quantitative leadership in a cross-functional effort to rapidly and at low cost develop new versions of current medicines with improved profiles. Using the tools of modern computational chemistry and machine learning, you will help enable our core mission of rapid, equal, and equitable access to medicines. You will also be part of a larger Data Science team that combines areas of expertise to gain a molecular understanding of disease etiology, to identify novel targets and chemical matter, assess preclinical model translation relevance and patient population heterogeneity.

The Impact You’ll Have

You will help us in our goal to radically lower drug prices and expand access, by integrating modern computational techniques for molecular generation and optimization into a rapid, state of the art drug development process. You will drive the adoption of machine learning for the improvement of human health in building a radically different, digital-native and data-first life sciences company, where we bootstrap our way to rapid increases in scale and efficacy across functions. You will enable experts across EQRx to see further, connecting data from biology and chemistry, to the clinic and patients, powering a novel, modern paradigm in drug development.

Your Superpowers

  • You have

    5+ years of experience in data science in industry.

  • You have a PhD (preferred) or Masters (with 3+ additional years exp) in a quantitative scientific field such as chemistry, physics, computational biology, computer science, engineering, etc.
  • You are fluent in python (strongly preferred) or R and cloud native data science from data extraction and organization to code sharing.
  • You have experience in cheminformatics and computational chemistry (eg similarity searching, SAR modeling, molecular generation, compound-protein modeling) and the adaptation of modern machine learning tools to key problems in chemistry, biology, and drug design.
  • Ideally, you have used these computational skills in multiple drug discovery programs and understand the applied utility of different methodological approaches.
  • You have an excellent understanding of computational methods for chemistry and machine learning from a principles-centric perspective; focused on mapping the analysis technique to the problem.
  • Preferably you have experience building and implementing deep learning models and matching network architecture and inductive biases to the problem to be solved.
  • You are an excellent communicator, able to translate complex analyses into insightful visuals and presentations for audiences with a wide range of technical backgrounds.
  • You are empathetic with end users; proficient at turning business and scientific questions into testable, clean, and reproducible data scientific workflows.
  • You have a quick, flexible mind, able to rapidly learn new fields and use data science and machine learning to improve decision making and workflows.
  • You are an avid reader of the literature; excited to try novel tools and techniques to solve problems.

Are you bold enough?

Your work should matter and allow you the freedom to be 100% you. We spend too much time and effort in our career to not feel excited and proud about what we do and who we do it with. In other words, your career is too important for your next move to be just another job, so let’s work together to change the world and bring affordable medicines to all patients.

We aren’t about a bunch of empty slogans on a wall or words on a coffee cup – you can find that in lots of places. We are a culture of individuals with diverse backgrounds and personalities. What does EQRx stand for?

• EQuality Medicines: Equally good or better, innovative medicines

• EQuitable Medicines: Making innovative medicines affordable

• EQual Access: Sustainable, frictionless access for people to cutting-edge medicines

We have a bold mission and are looking for equally bold people who want to join us and help make a difference in the world. If you want to grease the wheel, we are definitely not for you. Want to build the wheel? We might be just what you are looking for.
