What's the role and how do you fit in?
BenevolentAI, founded in 2013, is an advanced technology company focused on accelerating the journey from data to medicines. It is the world’s only technology company with end-to-end capability from early discovery to late stage clinical development.
You will lead the stewardship and management of the large quantities of data that form a core part of BenevolentAI’s drug discovery machine learning work. Applying your extensive experience in managing biomedical and clinical data, you will design and oversee processes for ingesting, cataloguing, storing, tracking and serving data, particularly individual-level datasets. Working closely with the systems engineering and compliance teams, and using your deep knowledge of the relevant legislation and regulations you will ensure that data storage, access and use, within all our processes are fully compliant. In all you do, your primary goal will be to enable and facilitate the work of our AI and drug discovery teams. In close collaboration with our scientific teams, you will draw on your expertise to deliver creative, robust solutions to their needs, and will be an integral member of the team delivering our data acquisition strategy.
