Postdoctoral Scientist in Clinical Pharmacology Modelling & Simulation, GSK

An opportunity for a Postdoctoral Scientist position is currently available in Clinical Pharmacology Modelling & Simulation at GlaxoSmithKline, based in Sydney, Australia.

The role will explore ethnic variation in drug pharmacokinetics, initially on a 12-month contract. The Postdoctoral Scientist will utilise physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modelling to support assessments of potential ethnic sensitivity for new molecules in development at GSK. The Postdoctoral Scientist will build and utilise PBPK models, including the use of the SimCYP® Simulator, to explore the contribution of intrinsic and extrinsic factors to variation in pharmacokinetics across patient populations, contributing to model-informed drug-development strategies within GSK.

In addition to experience in modelling & simulation (PBPK preferred), an understanding of clinical pharmacology and pharmacogenetics or drug metabolism is required. To build good working relationships with other GSK R&D groups world-wide, the successful applicant will have good oral and written communication skills. Critical evaluation of the scientific literature is also fundamental to this role. Knowledge of R/R Studio, in either academia or the pharmaceutical industry, would be an advantage.
