The Department of Clinical Pharmacy and Biochemistry of the Institute of Pharmacy at the Freie Universitaet Berlin seeks for:
Postdoctoral research fellows (f/m)
We are an interdisciplinary, international, research-oriented group applying high scientific standards and innovative methodologies with the ultimate aim to foster the rational use of medicines while empowering young scientists to perform clinically relevant research (www.clinical-pharmacy.eu, www.bcp.fu-berlin.de/pharmazie/PharmaMS ).
Our group is grounded on two research pillars: (1) Bioanalytics, microdialysis, cell culture, and (2) Pharmacometric (data) analysis. As key feature, the two pillars are bridged, as our pharmacometric projects are based on in vivo or in vitro data obtained by the experimental research pillar, while innovative dynamic in vitro systems utilise modelling and simulation approaches. In addition, many of our projects are realised as parts of clinical studies. Typically, our research is embedded in consortia at a national and international level (EU, global).
We are looking for full-time postdoctoral fellows in the field of optimising drug therapy and drug development by applying therapeutic response and disease modelling and simulation to join our research group for a period of at least 1 year; extension to 2 years is possible. To be eligible for the positions, a PhD and a strong record in either (i) pharmacometric research area or (ii) our experimental platforms or both is needed. Additionally, experience in either (i) evaluating pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic or systems pharmacology data and pharmacometric analysis with NONMEM, R or similar pharmacometric software, or (ii) LC-MS/MS, microdialysis, cell culture is required. In any case, relevant expertise in modern bioanalytical approaches or in vitro models is explicitly welcome. The positions also offer supervision of PhD and Master/Diploma students.
Applications in English should include a letter of motivation incl. a description of research interests and relevant qualifications for the position. In addition, a curriculum vitae including a list of publications and names/email addresses of 2-3 referees should be provided.
