Do you have expertise in, and passion for, Data Science ? Would you like to apply your expertise to impact clinical trials in a company that follows the science and turns ideas into life changing medicines? Then AstraZeneca might be the one for you!
AstraZeneca is a global, science-led, patient-focused biopharmaceutical company that focuses on the discovery, development and commercialisation of prescription medicines for some of the world’s most serious diseases. But we’re more than one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies.
Digital Health - Be part of the team playing a critical role in driving meaningful change in the way we predict, prevent and treat patients’ conditions. A place that’s actively embracing and investing in technology, we harness digital, data and analytics to reinvent the future of healthcare and deliver improved outcomes to patients beyond core medical.
A forward-thinking mindset, everything we do is about redefining the status quo and thinking critically and differently to drive innovation. We ignite our creativity and fuel our curiosity by trying innovative approaches to do what’s never been done.
The Digital Health Study Design AI Team uses techniques from machine learning, artificial intelligence, and optimisation to build tools and models to assist the design of clinical trials. The aim is to make trials better for patients, cheaper and faster to implement, and more likely to succeed. The team uses a wide range of data – including clinical trial data, real world evidence, and unstructured data – to develop solutions that will in future impact every AstraZeneca trial. These solutions might be deployed machine learning models, novel knowledge representation approaches, optimisation models, sophisticated ontologies, or knowledge graphs.
The team is looking for a Senior Data Scientist to specialize in development of innovative machine learning models, optimisation models and artificial intelligence systems to support study design. This role will work closely with partners and the team to develop novel analytic solutions for a wide variety of applications such as measuring the burden of being a patient on a trial, improving sustainability of trials, building digital representations of trial designs, or optimising aspects of the trial design. Applications should have a great foundation in at least one of machine learning, artificial intelligence, optimisation and software engineering.
At AstraZeneca we’re dedicated to being a phenomenal Place to Work. Where you are empowered to push the boundaries of science and unleash your ambitious spirit. There’s no better place to make a difference to medicine, patients and society. An inclusive culture that champions diversity and collaboration, and always committed to lifelong learning, growth and development. We’re on an exciting journey to pioneer the future of healthcare.
