Invitation for Applications: Editor-in-Chief

NEW JOURNAL, CPT: Pharmacometrics & Systems Pharmacology


The American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics (ASCPT)
announces its search for the Editor of its new online-only, Open Access
journal, CPT: Pharmacometrics & Systems Pharmacology (CPT:PSP), to be
launched in mid-2012 with Nature Publishing Group as Publisher. CPT:PSP,
the second journal in a family of journals sponsored by ASCPT, capitalizes
on and extends the strengths of the parent journal, Clinical Pharmacology
and Therapeutics (CPT), which emphasizes the clinical aspects of the
pharmacological sciences including clinical trials, and drug disposition,
response and safety.


ASCPT has created a Steering and Editor Search Committee to review
applications, which will be due by January 31, 2012. Interviews will be held
in late February 2012, and shortly thereafter, the successful candidate will
embark on developing the editorial team, refining the Aims and Scope of
CPT:PSP and creating the prototype table of contents for the new journal, in
collaboration with the Society and the Publisher.


The Editor will work with the Society and the Publisher on strategic
planning for CPT:PSP, and will be responsible for the editorial content of
the journal, including subject matter, types of articles and actual content
of articles that are published in the journal. He or she will contribute to
the peer-review of submitted and commissioned content and will act as an
ambassador for the new journal by reaching out to potential authors and
reviewers and by promoting submission of relevant papers. In addition, the
Editor will collaborate effectively with the editorial leadership of
Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics. The broad scope of the new journal
will include coverage of pharmacometrics, modeling and simulation as applied
to the design and evaluation of clinical trials, systems pharmacology
modeling, particularly with a mechanistic link to human physiology, disease
modeling, "population" or mixed-effects pharmacokinetics and
pharmacodynamics modeling, model-based meta-analyses of clinical trials,
pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic modeling, computational pharmacology,
model-based comparative efficacy, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness.


The successful candidate will be a well-published scientist with
considerable relevant research experience. An earned doctorate degree is
required. The successful candidate must have intellectual vision, bold
scientific judgment, and be recognized as a leader in the discipline.


CPT: Pharmacometrics & Systems Pharmacology will be a collaborative endeavor
that will provide a unique international forum for scientists in the
pharmacometrics and systems pharmacology space.



Applicants should provide a statement of why they are interested in this
position, along with three letters of recommendation from knowledgeable
colleagues, a current CV, including evidence of fulfillment of the following


1. Academic and Publishing records
