BenevolentAI unites technology with human intelligence to re-engineer drug discovery and deliver life-changing medicines. We have developed the Benevolent Platform®, a drug discovery platform built on powerful data foundations with state of the art machine learning and AI technology. Our technology empowers scientists to decipher the vast and complex code underlying human biology, find new ways to treat disease and personalise medicines to patients. Benevolent has active in-house R&D drug programmes in disease areas such as neurodegeneration, immunology, oncology and inflammation and has research and commercial collaborations with leading pharmaceutical and research organisations. The company is headquartered in London with a research facility in Cambridge (UK) and a further office in New York.
We are an eclectic bunch at Benevolent, united by our belief that innovative thinking and purposeful technology can truly change outcomes for the better. Our mission is to re-engineer drug discovery and deliver life-changing medicines for patients in need and we do this by applying AI, machine learning and other advanced technologies to reinvent the ways drugs are discovered and developed. We strive to bring together unique skills and perspectives across biology, chemistry, engineering, AI research, informatics, precision medicine and drug discovery.
We are looking for a statistical geneticist with a passion for using human genetic analysis to impact drug discovery programmes at BenevolentAI. You will join a team, based in central London’s knowledge quarter, building and deploying a suite of tools for causal inference and patient stratification in our drug discovery programmes. Working closely with colleagues from machine learning, data science and drug discovery, you will bring statistical genetics tools together with machine learning methods to generate new biological insights. You will bring your skills and experience to bear on diverse methodological and scientific questions that have direct impact on Benevolent’s drug discovery programmes.
The dynamic environment that you will join at Benevolent offers many opportunities for a talented, motivated individual to influence our drug discovery programmes, supported by access to a wealth of data, infrastructure and expertise. We have a particular focus on deriving and applying more precise definitions of disease, and discovering medicines tailored to patients in those groups. You will be working to make precision medicine a reality alongside Benevolent’s world-class teams of data scientists and biologists, and an international network of external collaborators.
Together, we envision a world in which no disease goes untreated. If you are benevolent, curious, want to tackle real world problems and are willing to embrace new ideas, hit that ‘apply’ button and join us.
It has come to our attention that unfortunately fraudsters have been falsely offering jobs and set-up fake interviews under the guise of being a Benevolent recruiter. We therefore advise you to be very stringent about who is reaching out to you. Any enquiry from our team will only be made via the email firstname.lastname@example.org or an email from this domain @benevolent.ai. Please flag any suspicious contact request to email@example.com
