Redefining our approach to healthcare

It is an exciting time at GSK. We have created a world-leading computational environment and toolset to enable large scale experiments that exploit GSK’s unique access to data. This will be focused on bringing data, analytics and science together into solutions for our scientists and, ultimately, for our patients.

We understand our company will look very different in ten years’ time, and we are looking for people like you to help drive this change by joining our Esprit R&D Flagship programme of AI/ML experts for 2019.

What is unique about the Esprit R&D Development Programme?

Past success following the Esprit R&D programme has provided outstanding senior leaders and technical specialists in both Scientific and Medical areas. In 2018 we extended this programme to data leaders and now in 2019 we are specifically targeting AI/ML experts to support GSK R&D’s strategic transformation. In this development programme, as a talented individual you will be supported with:

  • Accelerated development to achieve an in-depth knowledge of R&D’s Data and Computational Sciences (DCS) environment, whilst gaining a broad understanding of the wider R&D organisation. This will be achieved through 3 x 12-month rotations tailored to the individuals needs and interests and could include an international assignment
  • Autonomy to help shape an intellectually demanding, diverse, fluid environment where you will be part of the AI/ML ground-breaking work that patients and our business depend on
  • Tailored support through mentoring and coaching. We understand you may not have previous experience in R&D Healthcare, therefore you’ll have regular access to Senior Leaders and leading Data thinkers to help you in your mission to accelerate development of the next generation of medicines for patients
  • Business acumen and leadership training to help you thrive within the matrix environment.

The programme is a career differentiator for participants. Members who have a high level of success on the programme are recognised for their technical/scientific contributions and are well positioned to accelerate their careers in the R&D function within GSK.


Will you be joining our 2019 Esprit R&D Leadership development programme?

This is a technical AI/ML role, with the opportunity for matrix and/or thought leadership responsibilities. You will be empowered to be creative, collaborative, ambitious and bold, to solve novel R&D problems and have the potential to directly impact patients’ futures. We have impressive kit and world class data, and we are now looking for smart people. Join us on this exciting journey and take the opportunity to utilise your AI/ML expertise to revolutionise the future of medicinal discovery at GSK.
