We are looking for talented computational biologists, bioinformaticians and other life sciences graduates and postgraduates to join us.
You will have the opportunity to apply the knowledge you have gained during your studies and use a range of skills to create, develop and deliver solutions that truly make a difference in the world.
You will help our clients solve a variety of science and engineering problems. Projects can span a range of activities and your responsibilities will include:
Our projects are exciting and rewarding and provide plenty of opportunities to learn and develop. They can be based either on client sites or in Tessella offices, so you will be expected to undertake regular travel, usually no more than one hour from your base office. You will be assigned to projects based on your existing skills and experience, but you will also be expected to quickly learn new domains and technologies and apply innovative thinking and transferable skills to solve new challenges.
You will work predominantly with pharmaceutical, biotech and life sciences clients in the Stevenage area. Our work in the life sciences sector is mainly solving computational problems for chemists at the early stages of drug discovery and development, but projects are varied, from disease mapping to modelling the lifecycle of pesticides.
We are looking for enthusiastic graduates and postgraduates, with a passion for problem solving, to join us. During your career at Tessella, you will learn and develop your skills, but before you join us you should have:
We offer excellent prospects for your future. While we do offer traditional career paths, most staff end up shaping their own based on their aspirations, the skills they have developed and the projects they have worked on. As your career progresses, you will be able to contribute to projects in a variety of roles, from Data Scientist and Software Developer to Business Analyst and Project Manager, or any combination of these. We take personal development seriously and all staff receive an annual training allowance of 150 hours, which can be used to learn new technical and soft skills, often leading to recognised professional qualifications.
We are proud of our culture, where a positive attitude, supportive colleagues and commitment to continuous learning are all valued. The wellbeing and engagement of all staff is our priority and we work in a collaborative, cooperative environment with a good work-life balance. We offer an excellent salary and benefits package including a profit-sharing scheme, non-contributory pension, relocation assistance and a range of flexible benefits, which staff can tailor to fit their needs. We also support flexible working requests where possible.
