SENIOR LECTURER IN

PHARMACOKINETICS AND PHARMACODYNAMICS

This position is based at the

Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology.

Ref. no.: E 324 2340/09

This position is based at the Department of Pharmacology, within the Unit f=
or Pharmacokinetics

and Drug Metabolism. The unit currently consists of one professor and nine =
doctoral/postgraduate

students.

The department offers teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels wit=
hin the pharmacist

and prescriptionist programmes, as well as research education. The teaching=
 is carried out in

Swedish and English. The research focuses on the absorption and disposition=
 of antiparasitic and

antiviral pharmaceuticals as a basis for rational treatment recommendations=
 for various patient

populations in a global perspective. In relation to this, applied pharmacom=
etrics has become an

increasingly important research methodology. For more information about act=
ivities in the unit,

see the unit's website: www.pkdm.se.

A research profile in pharmacometrics, particularly population pharmacokine=
tics, or either drug

metabolism or absorption will be considered a major advantage for this posi=
tion. On a secondary

level of merit, expertise in drug bioanalysis, particularly chromatography/=
mass spectrometry

would also be considered an advantage. Further, a teaching experience on ph=
armaceutical

undergraduate/-graduate programmes is of merit.

Duties: The position entails the teaching and examination at undergraduate =
and postgraduate

levels, including course development, management and leadership, as well as=
 the supervision and

examination of graduate theses, within the pharmacist and prescriptionist p=
rogrammes. The

holder of this position is expected to conduct and lead research as well as=
 to carry out required

administrative tasks.

Qualification requirements: Doctoral degree, successful completion of unive=
rsity pedagogy

training and demonstrated pedagogical proficiency.

Applicants who do not meet the qualification requirements in terms of unive=
rsity pedagogy training

and who do not possess equivalent skills may be employed for a maximum of o=
ne year, with the

possibility of an additional year's extension. If such qualifications are a=
cquired during this period

of employment, the form of employment will be converted to permanent tenure=
 on request.

Basis for assessment: In the first instance, assessment will be on the basi=
s of scholarly and

pedagogical proficiency. A first degree in the pharmaceutical sciences woul=
d be a particular

advantage, since the teaching carried out by the unit is within the pharmac=
ist and prescriptionist

programmes.

Administrative proficiency and collaborative abilities will also be taken i=
nto account when

appointing the successful candidate.

A candidate who is offered a permanent position as senior lecturer will ins=
tead be employed on a

permanent basis as a professor if she or he has requested this and is quali=
fied for such a position.

Applicants wishing to be considered for employment as a professor must spec=
ifically request this

on the first page of their application.
