We are seeking motivated, innovative, skilled and experienced computational biologists to join our expanding team within the Human Genetics department. Candidates should be keen to drive and apply state of the art analysis methods to inform decision making across the GSK pipeline, integrating diverse and complex data types to translate genetic signals into innovative new medicines for patients with unmet medical need.
At the core of GSKs R&D approach is the identification of new medicines by focusing on ways to modulate the immune system, leveraging the vast amounts of human genetic data now being generated and applying cutting edge technologies in functional genomics and machine learning.
Within the Human Genetics team, we leverage scientific and technological advances, including investment in biobanks linked to large-scale human health databases, cutting-edge informatics platforms and integration of biological pathway and functional genomics data to identify novel targets with a high degree of human genetic validation. We continue to evaluate these targets throughout their life in the drug discovery and development pipeline, using genetics and genomics to identify the patients that are most likely to benefit and biomarkers to select these patients and assess efficacy.
The successful candidate will work in a multidisciplinary, collaborative and scientifically driven environment, interacting with GSK scientists and external collaborators to advance drug discovery and clinical development This field-leading research addresses important drug discovery and development challenges, directly impacts GSK’s R&D pipeline and leads to publications in top scientific journals.
