Physiologically Based Pharmacokinetic Modeling Fellowship (ORISE)Posted by: Postdoc positions by NIH
Posted date: 2019-Feb-01
A fellowship opportunity is currently available in the Division of Biochemical Toxicology (DBT) at the National Center for Toxicological Research (NCTR) of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
NCTR conducts FDA mission-critical research specializing in the development of scientific strategies to support regulatory decision-making. DBT focuses on fundamental and applied research designed to elucidate mechanisms of toxicity and support risk-assessment for chemicals of interest to the FDA. The selected participant will work with a dedicated mentor on the development and use of pregnancy Physiologically Based Pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models to investigate the challenges and opportunities in modeling life-stages in support of NCTR’s objectives and the FDA mission.
Opportunities may include:
Through this fellowship, the selected participant will have the opportunity to learn and apply computational modeling skills to address public health-related issues and gain experience in developing tools geared towards the advancement of regulatory science. S/he will collaborate with FDA investigators at NCTR and with investigators in other FDA centers. During the project, s/he will be actively encouraged to present the research at internal and external meetings and publish the findings in peer-reviewed journals.
This program, administered by ORAU through its contract with the U.S. Department of Energy to manage the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education, was established through an interagency agreement between DOE and FDA. The initial appointment is for one year, but may be renewed for another year upon recommendation of FDA contingent on performance and availability of funds. The participant will receive a monthly stipend commensurate with education level and experience. Proof of health insurance is required for participation in this program. The appointment is full-time at NCTR in Jefferson, Arkansas. Participants do not become employees of FDA or the program administrator, and there are no fringe benefits paid.Qualifications:
