Job Description

GTN - A Quantum Leap in Drug Discovery.

Bringing a single new drug to the market costs $2.9bn and takes 15 years, with a high chance of failure. At GTN we combine machine learning and quantum physics, using our unique patent-pending technology, Generative Tensorial Networks, to efficiently access the full drug-like space, i.e. 1060, and to more accurately predict chemical activities. This has the potential to create substantial efficiencies in the whole drug development cycle which could have a huge positive impact on lives globally.

GTN is well funded by Tier-1 VCs and has built an outstanding interdisciplinary team, a world-class board of advisors and collaborations with a number of global pharmaceutical companies and world-leading research institutes.

GTN received the CogX UK Rising Star award for Outstanding Achievement in Machine Learning handed to us by the British Prime Minister, Theresa May and was recently featured in WIRED Magazine.
