Postdoctoral Fellowship Position at Metrum Institute

Metrum Institute is seeking a qualified and motivated candidate for a =
postdoctoral fellowship position. The fellow will apply modeling and =
simulation methodologies to continue the development of a systems =
biology model relating calcium homeostasis and bone remodeling. The =
purpose of this multiscale model is to simultaneously describe =
sub-cellular mechanisms, multi-organ interactions, and clinical =
outcomes. The goal of this model is to provide a workbench to evaluate =
the ramifications of system perturbations caused by disease state(s), =
genetic abnormalities, and therapeutic intervention(s). Skills to be =
applied and developed include physiologic modeling, clinical =
pharmacology, Bayesian methodologies, and various low- and high-level =
programming languages.

Founded in 2005, Metrum Institute is a nonprofit organization dedicated =
to the advancement of quantitative modeling and simulation in biomedical =
research, with particular emphasis on problems in clinical pharmacology =
and therapeutics. Our efforts include training courses in modeling & =
simulation techniques/methods, development of quantitative tools and =
software, publications, methods and applied research, symposia, and =
collaboration with the academic community in research and training of =
fellows and graduate students. Metrum Institute is dedicated to the =
promotion, advancement, and dissemination of knowledge through research, =
education, and training in quantitative modeling and simulation applied =
to biomedical research.

The successful candidate will work alongside and interact with the =
world-class scientific staff of Metrum Institute. Participation in =
weekly lab meetings and journal clubs will add to the breadth of =
experiences during the fellowship.

The fellowship appointment is for one year with the possibility of an =
additional year with mutual agreement. A doctoral degree (Ph.D., PharmD, =
or M.D.) is required in pharmacokinetics, pharmaceutical sciences, =
biostatistics, bioengineering or related discipline at the time of =
appointment. Prior experience with Bayesian and other modeling and =
simulation tools, programming and statistical training, and an =
understanding of biological processes is desirable. Applicants must be =
eligible to work in the United States. Metrum Institute is an equal =
opportunity employer.
