Biological Data Scientist

Job description

Eikon Therapeutics is a new biopharmaceutical company employing revolutionary technology at the intersection of chemistry, engineering, computation, and biology to discover novel treatments for life-threatening diseases. Eikon’s discovery platform is built on groundbreaking innovations from its founders (Nobel Prize, 2014), culminating in the creation of microscopes which enable real time, molecular-resolution measurements of protein movement in living cells, thereby unlocking otherwise intractable classes of proteins as drug targets.


As a Biological Data Scientist, you will work to better understand large high-throughput datasets. You will support data analysis for external scientific collaborations while developing novel analysis tools and workflows.

About You

You have a passion for understanding biology via novel high-throughput data generation. You enjoy multidisciplinary scientific collaborations. You are conscientious and value scientific reproducibility and intelligibility as much as innovation. You can juggle competing priorities and stay focused on long-term goals, while having the flexibility to keep up with the pace of experimental science.

What You’ll Do
  • Collaborate both internally and externally with biologists and chemists to better understand large datasets
  • Work with research, software development, engineering, and product teams to create data analysis tools for internal and external stakeholders
  • Communicate complex analyses internally and to external scientific collaborators

  • Ph.D. in computer science / bioinformatics / computational biology or equivalent experience
  • 5+ years of experience with biological data analysis
  • Strong expertise in scientific python (e.g., pandas, scipy, matplotlib)
  • Experience with large image derived datasets
  • Expertise in data workflow management systems (e.g., Snakemake, Nextflow) a plus
  • Cell imaging experience is a plus
  • Customer facing experience is strongly preferred
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Team oriented, flexible, able to adapt to rapidly evolving goals and challenges
  • Enthusiasm for gaining biological and drug discovery experience essential

Eikon is proud to be an equal opportunity employer and will consider all qualified applicants for employment.

In accordance with the Company’s duty to provide and maintain a safe workplace, the Company requires all employees to have received both an FDA-approved primary vaccine series and at least one booster vaccine against COVID-19 as of their start date.
