>
> 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 o=
f
> the position is to provide the postdoctoral fellow with research experien=
ce
> in both an industry and academic setting to aid the fellow’s deve=
lopment 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, 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
> experience.
>


> 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 a=
n
> 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.
