We’re looking for ambitious Human Genetics, Computational Biology, and Functional Genomics professionals to join GSK in a range of therapeutic areas. For a list of current opportunities, visit our careers portal.


Our ambition is to positively impact the health of 2.5 billion people by the end of the decade. We have dedicated global teams that research, develop, and manufacture innovative medicines and vaccines. By harnessing our science and technology, we have an opportunity to not only prevent disease in the first place, abut also change the course of a disease – helping to prevent or slow down the progression of an illness and limit long-term complications.

Find a career with purpose in genetics or genomics

Our people are central to our success. To deliver against our strategy and tackle global health challenges effectively, we need a talented, motivated, and resilient workforce. To achieve this, we aim to create a working environment where employees feel valued, empowered, and inspired.

Our approach to R&D focuses on science related to the immune system, and will leverage human genetics, functional genomics, and advanced analytics to improve the probability of successfully developing new medicines. Used on a genome-wide scale, these technologies have the power to uncover insights previously hidden. We are poised to transform drug discovery by taking a deeper look into the genetic clues behind disease, aided by large-scale genetic resources, the latest technology, and advanced data science skills.
