The Division of Clinical Pharmacology at the University of Cape Town invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship. Highly motivated science/engineering/data science researchers are invited to contribute to the research and training activities of the Pharmacometrics Group.
Pharmacometrics is an emerging discipline that uses mathematical and statistical tools to quantify drug, disease, and trial information to aid efficient drug development and/or regulatory decisions. It designs and applies mathematical models to describe the relationship between drug exposure (pharmacokinetics) and response (pharmacodynamics) for both desired and undesired effects, and aims to include in such models the effects of individual patient characteristics.
Our Pharmacometrics Group has established pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic expertise in the area of tuberculosis, HIV, and malaria. It is active internationally and enjoys on-going collaborations and exchange programs with some of the most renowned pharmacometric modelling groups worldwide.
This fellowship is not only a unique chance to acquire an internationally sought-after set of professional skills geared towards a career either in academia or the pharmaceutical industry, but also an opportunity for a scientist in quantitative sciences to apply their expertise within the fascinating and rewarding framework of biomedical research.
