*UNC/GSK Postdoctoral Fellowship in Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics*



The UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) offers a
two-year postdoctoral fellowship in pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics
(PK/PD). The fellowship emphasizes coursework and hands-on experience
focused on the application of population and physiologically-based PK/PD
modeling and simulation techniques to guide drug development. Fellows spend
their first year in Chapel Hill, NC at the University of North Carolina,
and the second year at GSK research facilities in Collegeville, PA.



At the completion of the Fellowship, the post-doctoral fellow will be able
to:

   - Describe the importance of clinical research in drug development;
   - Describe the nature and relevance of clinical data evaluations
   relative to drug development;
   - Design and implement studies to examine drug absorption, drug
   disposition, pharmacodynamic endpoints and drug interactions in healthy
   human volunteers or diseased patient populations;
   - Understand foundational concepts related to population PK/PD and
   physiologically-based PK modeling and simulation techniques;
   - Understand important considerations in clinical trial design and the
   conduct of clinical investigations in specific patient populations (e.g.,
   pediatrics);
   - Perform PK/PD and statistical data analysis using relevant software
   packages;
   - Prepare a manuscript, seminar and other scholarly vehicles for
   communication of scientific results.



Requirements: minimum of a PharmD, MD, or PhD with knowledge of PK/PD
analyses. Excellent communication skills and ability to work independently
as well as a member of an interdisciplinary team are essential. Interested
applicants can apply through this web site:
