GSK has 3 openings available for Data Integration (US and UK) in the
Pharmacometrics (PMx) group. PMx is seeking solutions for: (a) delivering
real-time access to analysis-ready data sets, (b) gaining timely access to
useful external data (e.g. numerical competitive intelligence) and (c)
exploiting the enormous amount of existing clinical data GSK holds. The
objective of these activities is to facilitate data analysis and
interpretation process and to support informed decisions making process in
Drug Discovery and Development. To this end, we are forming a small group
of three highly motivated individuals with diverse statistical and
programming skills to work in the PMx group and to interact with Discovery
Biometrics, Clinical Pharmacology Modelling & Simulation, Genetics and
Computational Biology.

Main accountabilities include:
(a) Implementing integrated toolset enabling business processes to be
independent of the data capture and data storage tools used, (b)
Delivering data aggregation solutions, exploratory analyses, and data
presentation tools appropriate to support the implementation, the
execution and the timely delivery of PMx projects, (c) developing
exploratory and visual data analysis tools using appropriate statistical
and graphical techniques, (d) Defining and implementing an integrated and
easy-to-use environment that allows users to extract, transform, manage,
query and view data, (e) Defining tools (scripts libraries) to automate
trivial/repetitive activities for data manipulation, formatting and
display.
