As part of the digitalisation of early research at Novo
Nordisk we are looking for
outstanding candidates with a strong background in
computational science and natural language processing
(NLP) who can bring value to the
organisation by turning text into data for analysis and
insights, via application of NLP and analytical methods.
This is an exciting position where you will help scientists in the early research organisation to transform their decision-making from a document-centric view of finding documents and reading them, to a data-centric view of uncovering new insights by the use of natural language processing-based text mining. This will help the researchers to overcome the limitations of unstructured data and uncover previously hidden relationships.
This is your chance to join forces with a competent information research department and help democratize external and internal scientific information and data. The position offers you a unique combination of science and information research.
About the department and area
You will join 20 dedicated colleagues within the Novo
Nordisk Global Information and Analysis department (GLIA),
which offers a worldwide information service and scientific
intelligence function to Research & Early Development (R&ED)
, at headquarter and affiliates.
Our purpose is to provide modern digital solutions to the organisation and to ensure that internal customers have easy and global access to quality information sources and professional information research services supporting their needs.
GLIA is part of a new area, Digital Research & Intelligence, which is being establised to provide a modern scientific intelligence unit, drive external collaborations and access to emerging technologies in the digital space of drug discovery, facilitate idea maturation and develop an educational framework to drive our digital jounney.
Digital & Research Intelligence is part of Digital Science & Innovation (DSI), which was recently established to drive digitalisation across R&ED. DSI participates in drug development projects across the value chain, from early discovery to pre-clinical development.
You will work as a NLP specialist and be a key expert within your field. By combining NLP text mining, artificial intelligence, mechanistic modelling and knowledge graphs you will help scientists in early research to extract key information from unstructured text, rapidly and effectively, to provide decision support. You will be working with textual documents of multiple format like scientific literature, patents, patient literature, internal safety reports, drug labels, clinical trial data, social media, electronic health records, Google slides, Electronic Lab Notebooks etc.
We are looking for a highly motived person preferable with a PhD in Computer Science, AI, Computational Linguistics, Applied Mathematics, Physics or similar. Further we expect you to have the skills and expertise listed below:
Title and conditions are evaluated based on the individual experience and contribution .
