With over 35 nationalities and a range of backgrounds represented in our Benevolent team, we aim to build an inclusive environment where our people can bring their authentic selves to work, be respected for who they are and the exceptional work they do. We welcome and actively encourage applications from all sections of society and are committed to offering equal employment opportunities regardless of sex, race, religion or belief, ethnic or national origin, marital, domestic or civil partnership status, sexual orientation, gender identity, parental status, disability, age, citizenship, or any other basis. We see our diversity as an asset as we tackle challenging problems that bridge the gap between drug discovery and technology.
As a placement student within BenevolentAI, you will be an integral part of one or more project teams and will learn how we use AI approaches to prioritise the best ideas and experiments and then test these ideas in the lab using a range of cell biology & pharmacology techniques with the ultimate goal of identifying molecules suitable to test in clinical studies. We have active projects against a number of disease areas ranging from cancer through to neurodegenerative diseases, autoimmune, rare diseases and others. Our projects are fast moving and some may change by the time you start your placement so unfortunately we can’t say which disease area you’d be working in but if you’d like to work in a specific disease area, let us know and we’ll see what might be possible.
You will have a dedicated supervisor to help you learn and get the best out of your placement. Good familiarity and experience with a range of lab-based experimental approaches is required but you’ll receive full training on the specific laboratory techniques you’ll be using along with associated health and safety considerations.
The placement will be based at BenevolentAI’s Cambridge research centre based at the Babraham Research Campus, Cambridge. You’ll receive a competitive salary and benefits during your placement.
