Clinical Pharmacology Modeling and Simulation department at GlaxoSmithKline
in collaboration with College of Pharmacy, University of Florida is
offering a two year postdoctoral fellowship in clinical
pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics and pharmacometrics. The overall goal of
the position is to provide the postdoctoral fellow with research experience
in both an industry and academic setting to aid the fellow’s develo=
pment as
an independent researcher who has the skills and experience to pursue a
career in industry, academia, or a research/drug development setting.

During the first year, the fellow will participate in clinical
pharmacology, drug pharmacokinetic and metabolism studies and mathematical
modeling with faculties at College of Pharmacy, University of Florida. The
post doctoral fellow will be involved in the design, conduct and data
analysis of clinical pharmacology studies as part of the learning

During the second year at GlaxoSmithKline, King of Prussia PA, the fellow
will be part of a group that applies state-of-the-art quantitative
methodologies to the development of compounds in the GSK portfolio, such as
population pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic analyses, exposure-response,
disease progression modeling and clinical trial simulations. The fellow may
contribute to the design and analysis of first-time-in-human,
proof-of-concept, drug-drug interaction or other clinical pharmacology
studies. Using advanced techniques, the fellow may participate in modeling
and simulation efforts for quantitative decision making to enhance study
design, support candidate selection, provide dose rationale, and/or
benchmark against competitor compounds.

Minimum Requirements:

Preferred qualifications for the position are Ph.D. or equivalent in
pharmacokinetics, pharmacology, mathematics or relevant discipline with an
interest in pursuing a career in clinical pharmacology, pharmacokinetics,
and/or pharmacometrics. Familiarity with basic statistical methodologies,
prior experience with modeling and simulation and software tools like
NONMEM, Monolix, R is a plus.

Application Process:

The fellowship starts July 1, 2015. A competitive stipend, health
insurance, and travel to scientific meetings will be offered. Interested
individuals should submit, via e-mail, a letter describing their personal
goals as related to the fellowship, curriculum vitae, and three
professional references to:
