If you have a knack for the development of mathematical and computational models of biological systems or if you are a genius developer with a keen interest in working on a state-of-the-art platform, read and apply.

Culture attributes

Our people are our greatest asset. We evaluate each applicant’s fit with Nova on the basis of the following attributes:

Integrity: our clients work to improve patients’ lives. We are committed to doing the right thing for the institutions we serve.

Emergent leadership: we don’t care about titles or seniority, we expect each member of our team to act like an owner, not like an employee. A typical illustration is: “I’ve identified a problem, figured out what caused it, researched how to fix it, and I fixed it.”

Comfort with ambiguity: human biology is eminently complex so more often than not you will be faced with a problem which does not have a clear cut solution.

Intellectual humility: while we hire the brightest minds we also ensure these individuals operate as part of a team. It’s a matter of “we”, not “I”. And it’s ok to make mistakes as long as you learn from them.

Profiles & positions

We hire engineers with a solid understanding of biology to develop mathematical and computational models of biological systems (Modeling & Simulation group). We hire developers to build the best modeling & simulation platform in our industry (Technology group). Check our WISE® engine for a sneak peek. We also hire people who eat maths for breakfast but do not know much about biology to work at the interface between our M&S and Technology groups.


You will go through a thorough recruitment process if you are selected as a potential candidate, and we’re mindful of your time, so don’t bother with a cover letter as most of them look alike and those who stand out are poor predictors of actual performance on the job.


Want to discover Nova from the inside? There is no better way than starting with an internship to find out if there is a mutual fit. We are looking for talented grad students in the fields of applied mathematics, computer science or life science technologies. We are flexible on the dates and accept students for internships ranging from 2 to 8 months as we have a wide variety of exciting subjects for you to work on depending on your specialty and area of interest. For instance in computer science we have subjects in data visualisation, automatic parsers and language interpreters; in life sciences we have subjects in systems biology and lung allograft disfunction; in applied mathematics we have subjects in complex system dimensionality reduction and inverse problems.
