packages such as mrgsolve, pkpdsim etc., is ideal but not required.
Candidates for this role are preferably in the advanced stages of a Ph.D.
program involving quantitative analyses of biological systems. Prior
industry experience will not be required.

into (a) the nature of pharmacometrics data generated within industry, (b)
the processes and systems involved in data analyses, (c) analytical and
