Department: IUSM - Medicine - Clinical Pharmacology
Campus: IU School of Medicine Indianapolis
The Department of Medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine is seeking outstanding candidates for the Disease and Therapeutic Response Modeling and Simulation Program within the Division of Clinical Pharmacology for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship.
The postdoctoral fellow will join our individualized training program in quantitative clinical pharmacology and pharmacometrics, including application of non-linear mixed effects modeling, physiological-based pharmacokinetic modeling, data mining, machine learning, and quantitative systems pharmacology. Trainees will benefit from interactions with the Division's T32 Clinical Pharmacology Fellowship program, experts in clinical pharmacology, biostatistics, computational biology, and bioinformatics, as well as faculty with long-term experience in the pharmaceutical industry. Candidates will develop the critical skills necessary for participation in state-of-the-art pharmaceutical research, including support of the Pre-clinical Trial Core of the MODEL-AD Alzheimer's disease research program. Additionally, the candidate will have the opportunity to support projects in other therapeutic areas of interest, including women's health, oncology, pediatrics, nephrology, psychiatry, and mechanistic modeling of drug-drug interactions. Candidates are also encouraged to pursue methodological topics relevant to clinical interests of the Program.
Our interdisciplinary team is looking for a motivated, ambitious, and creative individual with excellent written and verbal communication skills.
PharmD, MD, or PhD in pharmacology, systems biology/pharmacology, pharmacometrics, bioengineering, biostatistics, computational biology, or related fields.
Preference will be given to candidates with strong quantitative skills and computational experience (R, Matlab, Python, Nonmem, etc); however, candidates with a strong desire to integrate such analyses with pre-clinical and/or clinical drug studies are also encouraged to apply.
