Postdoctoral R&D

Are you an exceptional postdoc or PhD scientist with strategic decision-making skills? If you would like to work on critical R&D challenges in the pre-competitive space then consider joining our postdoctoral R&D program.

What will the program be like and what will I learn?

You can expect to be working on the critical R&D challenges in the pre-competitive space, providing the opportunity for publications in high-impact journals and presentation opportunities while rounding out your training with a deeper understanding of translation of drug discovery and development to medicines of value for patients.

At the start of the program, you’ll work with your supervisor to further a program of research with mutually agreed timelines, milestones, objectives, accountability and duration (up to three years).

During this time, you will have access to our extensive R&D engine, including our tools, technologies, libraries, samples and events.

On the program you will:

  • Be at the cutting edge of science
  • Understand how we are bridging the gap from target identification to medicine for patients in need
  • Be part of a multi-functional drug research and development organization working on high risk, cutting edge science, focused on resolving critical R&D challenges
  • Be prepared for a career in industry, government, a non-profit and/or academia

It felt like a big leap into the unknown, but I’m so glad I did it. I’ve always wanted to work close to clinical need, so it feels great to be part of a healthcare company. It wasn’t until my first postdoc that I found out about GSK’s postdoctoral programme – and how relevant my expertise in immunology is to the development of new medicines.
