Applications are invited for the post of Lecturer in Model-Based Precision Dosing, based in Systems Pharmacology within the Centre for Applied Pharmacokinetic Research, in the Manchester Pharmacy School. The lectureship aims to advance modelling research in the area of individual dose optimisation and to demonstrate its application.

You will have a first degree in a biologically related subject (e.g. pharmacy, pharmacology, systems biology) with a PhD involving modelling in the area of clinical pharmacology. You should have a sound understanding of physiologically-based pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics with scholarly publications focusing on patient variability.

You will be expected to setup appropriate links with clinical research groups across the University in order to initiate research projects related to dose individualisation, particularly relating to Cancer, HIV and applications of biologics. Research projects should entail the utilisation of prior information on patients and drug characteristics using Bayesian optimisation methods and by monitoring markers of therapeutic effects. The Lecturer will participate and contribute to the post graduate teaching on model-based drug development particularly in the area of physiologically-based pharmacokinetic modelling.

The Manchester Pharmacy School is committed to promoting equality and diversity, including the Athena SWAN charter for promoting women’s careers in STEMM subjects (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine) in higher education. The School received a Silver Award in 2014 for their commitment to the representation of women in the workplace and we particularly welcome applications from women for this post. Appointment will always be made on merit. For further information, please visit:
