The Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center has a postdoctoral fellow opening in clinical pharmacology and pharmacometrics. This fellowship is focused on the application of pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic/pharmacogenetic and disease modeling and clinical trial simulation to facilitate pediatric drug study design and improve individualized patient care in a top tier academic setting. The candidate will have an opportunity to gain a breadth of experience including: population pharmacokinetic –pharmacodynamics (PK/PD) and pharmacogenetic modeling as well as mechanistic physiologically –based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling of drugs in pediatric patients participating in ongoing studies at our institution. Emphasis will also be on the design of informative studies using modeling and simulation in neonates and infants including patient on ECMO and cardiopulmonary bypass. The fellow will have an opportunity to be involved in the development and evaluation of novel advanced numerical and computation approaches for disease progression/improvement modeling.
Preferred qualifications for the position are a Pharm.D., Ph.D., or MD with an interest in pursuing a career in clinical
pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, and/or pharmacometrics. For more information go to:
