Dear All:

I'm writing to inform you that we continue to solicit CVs who are
interested in pursuing entry-level and senior pharmacokineticist
positions within the Department of Drug Metabolism at Merck Research
Laboratories at our West Point, Pennsylvania location -- in fact, we are
planning to expand our group substantially in 2009. Pharmacokineticists
at Merck work in inter-disciplinary teams to design, conduct, and
interpret the results of clinical drug trials, with a focus on obtaining
and interpreting quantitative data on the time course of drug
concentrations within the body and drug effects on the body. In
addition, pharmacokineticists play a central role in PK/PD modeling and
simulation, a key aspect of model-based drug development at Merck.
Pharmacokineticists are expected to present their results at internal
and external meetings and to write reports and other regulatory
documents to support drug registration.

experimental design/interpretation and quantitative analysis,
particularly mathematical modeling. Experience in the area of PK/PD
and/or population analyses is highly desirable but not essential. In
addition, experience in PK/PD analysis of biologic therapeutics is a
