I'm happy to answer any questions a potential candidate may have about the =
work, division, School, or RTP area.



A Research Assistant Professor position is available immediately to work as=
 part of a multidisciplinary team on infectious disease projects focused on=
 the application of mathematical modeling and simulation to characterize dr=
ug pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.

The projects will involve the use of nonlinear mixed effects and physiologi=
cally-based modeling techniques, and other biostatistical applications in p=
reclinical and clinical drug development research, to identify optimal dosi=
ng and clinical trial design.

The successful candidate will work in the Clinical Pharmacology and Analyti=
cal Chemistry Laboratory of Dr. Angela Kashuba, and will focus on challengi=
ng preclinical and clinical modeling projects in the areas of HIV treatment=
, prevention, and cure. This position is also integrated into the UNC Cente=
r for AIDS Research, the HIV Cure Center, and Qura Therapeutics. The candid=
ate will also consult on, and assist with, projects supported by these enti=

This candidate will become part of the Division of Pharmacotherapy and Expe=
rimental Therapeutics. This Division is a designated Pharsight Phoenix(r) C=
enter of Excellence, and is a nationally recognized, dynamic and collegial =
faculty whose vision is to lead the nation in achieving excellence in innov=
ative translational research, education, and progressive pharmacy practice =
to optimize drug therapy outcomes.

The Division has vibrant fellowship and graduate programs, including an NIH=
-funded T32 postdoctoral training program in Clinical Pharmacology in colla=
boration with Duke University and the Institute for Drug Safety Sciences. I=
t is expected that the successful candidate will embrace student mentoring.=
 Didactic teaching is not required, but there are many opportunities to par=
ticipate if the candidate wishes to grow their teaching portfolio.

At UNC-CH, the UNC Schools of Medicine, Public Health, Dentistry, Nursing a=
nd Pharmacy comprise one of the nation's few comprehensive academic health =
centers located on a world-class research campus. This creates an excellent=
 environment in which to conduct multidisciplinary research. This position =
will work within dynamic multidisciplinary teams to optimize drug dosing an=
d outcomes.

Qualified candidates must have either a doctoral degree in Pharmacometrics,=
 Pharmaceutical Sciences, Biostatistics, Biomedical Engineering, Medicine, =
Pharmacy or a closely related discipline, or a masters of science degree wi=
th additional pharmacometrics training.

The successful candidate must demonstrate expertise in modeling, simulation=
, and statistical methods through evidence of scientific meeting presentati=
ons, publications, regulatory report submissions or other equivalent activi=
ties.Extensive software (e.g., NONMEM, ADAPT, Phoenix, Simulations Plus Sui=
te, R) and programming proficiency is preferred. Excellent communication sk=
ills and ability to work independently as well as a member of an interdisci=
plinary team are essential. Interested applicants should submit a letter de=
