It’s pretty well accepted by now that AI is the future of most industries. Wouldn’t you like to play a part in defining that future while developing the medicines of tomorrow?
How exciting would it be to bring your skills as a computational biologist/data scientist to bear on a cutting edge, machine learning driven drug discovery engine, allowing you to uncover treatments in areas of serious unmet medical need?
What about working in a highly diverse team of international experts who are tackling novel scientific challenges every day?
We are an innovative biotech company based just outside Oxford who can give you the opportunity to do all this and more!
You’ll be working on a cutting edge, machine learning and network biology driven drug discovery platform to identify novel targets and therapeutics for a range of conditions. You’ll be answering unexplored biological questions to tackle areas of unmet medical need, helping to develop new capabilities, and taking a lead role in delivering exciting discovery programs.
In this role you’ll develop and implement a range of approaches both supporting the company’s drug discovery programs and expanding the capability of the platform. This will include developing novel approaches to the analysis of functional omics data, hands-on analysis of biological and chemical data to inform scientific decision making, and using cutting edge computational and statistical techniques to improve and enhance the platform.
You’ll also work closely with colleagues in data science, biology and software/data engineering to deliver cohesive solutions to real-world problems.
Our platform enables a unique approach to drug discovery, and we’re making real progress in treating conditions previously considered undruggable. Key partnerships with major Pharma companies have provided clear validation of our approach, and an emphasis on complex biology sets us apart from other technology-driven businesses.
If you’re a computational or data scientist who’s excited by solving fascinating puzzles in areas of real impact, then you’ll encounter engaging challenges and fantastic opportunities for development.
For this position, we’re looking for experienced computational biologists, bioinformaticians or data scientists with a track record of working with biological data, a comprehensive understanding of drug discovery and experience working with large scale omics datasets such as transcriptomics, GWAS, proteomics and eQTL.
A hands-on, practical understanding of computational optimisation, statistical data analysis and machine learning techniques will be critical to your success, and hands-on experience in wet lab biology, particularly target validation, will be an advantage.
You’ll also need strong interpersonal skills and an ability to influence without formal authority.
If this sounds like the opportunity you’ve been looking for, then get in touch on email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you.
