We are seeking a genomic data scientist, with a track record of supporting innovative, high quality research. The candidate should be comfortable managing and analysing large volumes of genetic and genomic data and results in a modern database and analytical environment.
GSK aims to improve the number of successful late stage clinical trials for innovative medicines, by both identifying and advancing drug targets that have strong evidence of a causal role in disease biology. The Human Genetics team leverages major scientific and technological advances, including investment in biobanks linked to large-scale human health databases, cutting-edge informatics platforms, breakthrough understanding of biological pathways, functional genomics capabilities built upon rapid progress in gene editing, and leading industry-academia partnerships, in order to identify the best targets and to continue evaluation of targets through their life in the pipeline.
The successful candidate will work in a multidisciplinary, collaborative and scientifically driven environment, interacting with GSK scientists and key academic collaborators to advance drug discovery and clinical development in multiple disease areas. This research will leverage industry-leading data and compute resources, to address important drug discovery and development challenges, to directly impact GSK’s R&D pipeline, and to publish in top scientific journals.
