 More information

Duties: The project will involve establishment of pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) relationships based on preclinical and clinical data for new and available antibiotics. Pharmacometric models will be developed which aim to translate exposure-response relationships in animals to exposure-response in patients, as well as improved analyzes of clinical study data and simulations for optimized dosing. We expect that the project will lead to new advances of methods for characterizing pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics in the field.

Requirements: Eligible to be employed as a researcher is a person who has completed a doctoral degree (PhD) in pharmacokinetics / pharmacodynamics / pharmacometrics or a related field or has a foreign degree that is deemed to correspond to a doctoral degree in the specified field.

We place great emphasis on personal suitability and motivation to improve methods for antibiotic development and antibiotic use. The applicant must be able to express themselves well, both orally and in writing, in English.

Additional qualifications: Pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic modeling and simulation of antibiotics. Experience of model-based translation from preclinic to clinic for antibiotics in drug development. Interest in, and skill in, scientific writing is highly desirable, as is experience of collaborating in international networks.

Application: The application should include:

  1. a motivation letter with a brief description of the candidate and research interests as well as experiences in relation to the requirements and qualifications listed above, and the topics pharmacometrics, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and oncology
  2. the candidate’s CV
