Senior AI/ML Engineer - Biomedical AI

At GSK we see a world in which advanced applications of Machine Learning and AI will allow us to develop transformational medicines using the power of genetics, functional genomics and machine learning. AI will also play a role in how we diagnose and use medicines to enable everyone to do more feel better and live longer. It is an ambitious vision that will require the development of products at the cutting edge of Machine Learning and AI.

To help us make this future a reality, we are looking for accomplished Senior Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Engineers that have a track record of delivering state-of-the-art machine learning models for solving challenging real-world scientific problems. Senior AI/ML Engineers at GSK are experienced scientists and engineers with in-depth knowledge in modern machine learning, a keen interest in making a positive impact in healthcare, and strong experience in engineering software solutions at scale.

To strengthen our team in Europe, we are looking for skilled Senior Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Engineers that will drive the development of state-of-the-art biomedical AI algorithms. This role will be focused on researching, designing, implementing, and delivering cutting-edge prediction models across a range of challenging biomedical tasks using state-of-the-art high-performance computing facilities and the vast and detailed biomedical data sources available at GSK.

The AI/ML team is built on the principles of ownership, accountability, continuous development, and collaboration. We hire for the long term, and we are motivated to make this a great place to work. Our leaders will be committed to your career and development from day one. We strongly encourage applications from people with diverse and underrepresented backgrounds and perspectives.

You will:
  • Take ownership of, design and implement AI/ML-driven solutions along the entire model development life cycle.
  • Research and develop state-of-the-art machine learning models, including deep learning models, to optimize model performance on a range of biomedical prediction tasks.
  • Deliver robust, tested and performant code in an agile environment.
  • Mentor colleagues and act as a role model for robust and scalable machine learning engineering.
  • Lead early project definition and scoping together with domain experts across the company.
  • Liaise with experts in biology, medicine and experimentation to ensure optimal collection of data to train biomedical machine learning models.
