GlaxoSmithKline Internship

Summer Internship in Statistics

The Biomedical Data Sciences Department at GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals R&D has a graduate student co-op position beginning in May or June, 2004 and extending for a duration of 3 months. (Some flexibility exists within the program to accommodate the student's need to start and finish at convenient times.)  The position will be based at the R&D facility located in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, approximately 30 minutes drive northwest from Philadelphia.

The purpose of the student co-op position is to provide graduate students in statistics with substantial on-the-job experience and interaction with industrial statisticians. All candidates must be currently enrolled students.

The co-op project will primarily consist of a statistical modeling exercise using a large clinical trials database.  The goal will be to identify and quantify study design features and patient population characteristics which impact on the magnitude and variability of response to medication.

* Two or more semesters of graduate course work in statistics (18 credit hours minimum)
* Familiarity with SAS®.
* Familiarity with general linear models with both fixed and random effects.
* Ability to work well in a team environment
