Job Description

Do you want to help us drive business impact with data and advanced analytics?

Who are we?

Abbott’s Established Pharmaceuticals Division (EPD), headquartered in Basel, is focused on helping make the world a healthier place by bringing the benefits of trusted pharmaceutical brands to much broader patient populations – in the developed world and, particularly, in the fastest growing markets. EPD brings value to its patients and customers through a growing portfolio of high-quality established pharmaceutical products and by building country-specific portfolios of trusted products to suit local patient needs.

What are we looking for?

We are on a journey to become more data- and insight-driven and want to start to explore advanced analytics and modern data technologies to a larger extent than before. To support this transformation, we are currently building a small team here in Basel to help accelerate awareness generation, understanding and adoption of data and analytics solutions within the company – worldwide.

Who do we need?

We search for a master or PhD student in e.g., applied mathematics, data science, computer science, engineering or other relevant areas, who is

  • passionate about modern data technologies, Advanced Analytics, Machine Learning, Deep Learning; in short usage of data to help address business challenges
  • a self-learner, keeping up to date on technology and the application of it over e.g., online courses, blogs, social media and communities on top of formal curriculums or study requirements – through reading and/or coding
  • intrinsically motivated to help people embark on a similar learning journey to make Advanced Analytics (AI, Machine Learning, Deep learning) more accessible to a broader range of stakeholders within our global organization (some more technical, some more business-focused)
  • feeling comfortable to write engaging short stories in English to promote good blogs, articles, news, online courses etc. and make this content easily accessible for our organization

We need people with a true passion for data & modern data technologies, who want to help others understand this new world of (data-driven) opportunities. Our company language is English, i.e., we do require fluent English, further languages always a plus but not a must.

Ideally you would be able to join us quite soon and spend at least 60-80% of your time with us for the coming months. Full-time internship is also possible.

At least at the beginning, the position will require significant time onsite in our offices in Basel. With time we can be more flexible, depending how quickly we get all structures up and running.
