With over 300 years of innovation, we’re a science-led global healthcare company that delivers billions of innovative products each year. Join us and help millions of people do more, feel better, live longer.
Are you a team-focused graduate who’s passionate about developing world-renowned medicines? Join us on this new three-year programme within the Biological Mass Spectrometry team, part of Drug design and selection (DDS).
Drug design and selection (DDS) supports the therapeutic areas within GSK that contribute to the discovery of new medicines. How? Through the collaborative identification of disease-linked targets and the selection of molecules for future drug development. This function’s scientific expertise and specific platform capabilities help us to deliver the best potential medicines.
This newly created position requires that you will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team to design and execute analytical strategies to support biology and biochemistry in the discovery phases of an R&D project. The Biological Mass Spectrometry team supports activities ranging from structural biology to mechanistic enzymology. The development and support of assays to measure both proteins and small molecules in vitro and in vivo is a key component of the groups remit. In addition, the successful candidate will actively pursue the development and implementation of new mass spectrometry-based technologies that will enhance our ability to more rapidly discover molecules and more thoroughly evaluate them in a relevant biological context. It is expected that person filling this position will publish independent and collaborative research in peer reviewed journals. We are looking for candidates who can make outstanding long-term contributions to our organisation. To help you achieve that, you’ll never be far from an expert who can help you to learn, grow and contribute to our business, and you’ll be coached and mentored to become a technical leader of the future.
If you’re a graduate with the talent and ambition to lead others, we’ll help you develop the expertise to become one of our Future Leaders.
Over three years, our Future Leaders graduate programme will challenge and support you to grow professionally and personally. You’ll have three stretching rotations within the Drug design and selection function, where you’ll be part of a vibrant global scientific community.
Whatever areas you join, you’ll be contributing to multidisciplinary teams that deliver therapeutic strategies to address specific disease areas. Rest assured that you’ll never be far from an expert who can help you to learn, grow and contribute to our business. As this is a new role, we’re keen to for you to help us tailor and influence the direction of the programme.
You’ll be responsible for the design and execution of label free, mass spec-based biochemical and cellular assays.
You’ll use state of the art mass spectrometry techniques to explore structural biology and protein modifications.
Seek out, evaluate and implement novel automation and sample introduction technologies for mass spectrometry analysis of protein, peptides and small molecules.
You’ll deliver high quality data to enable early decision making for target and compound progression
We’ll tailor your training and development to suit your talents and ambition, as well as our business needs, setting you up for success in your chosen niche. After you complete our Future Leaders programme, you’ll have the skills to become a technical leader of the future, with a solid foundation for a career within the pharmaceutical industry. There’s no limit to how far you can go with us – it’s up to you to prove yourself.
