Type of opportunity:
The Molecular Design group at GSK Stevenage have an opportunity for an Industrial Placement student to join their team. We work in close collaboration with our R&D colleagues to apply computational techniques to discover better and safer medicines for patients. We have a diverse range of expertise, from machine learning to cheminformatics and molecular simulation.
We are partners in an EU Innovative Medicines Initiative project, MELLODDY and you will be involved with the data assembly, machine learning and data analysis as we contribute to the various workstreams of this ambitious, international project.
You should have a good knowledge of basic statistics and a strong interest in data science/machine learning. Familiarity with a programming language such as Python is preferable.
You should be thorough in the way you work and pay attention to detail. You will be able to plan and organise your own work and have the ability to work independently as well as in a team environment. You have the ability to follow projects through to completion. Good communication and interpersonal skills are essential. Some knowledge of chemistry or biology would be advantageous, but not a requirement.
This is a computational role and will not involve any laboratory work.
