The Faculty of Science and the Leiden Academic Centre for Drug Research is
looking for a Postdoctoral researcher, Cardiovascular Quantitative Systems
Pharmacology (1.0 FTE).


Key responsibilities

*We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to work on development of
cardiovascular systems pharmacology models for prediction of adverse drug
reactions. This project is part of the IMI TransQST consortium.
Responsibilities include the development of PKPD, PBPK and QSP models
related to cardiovascular drug effects, writing of scientific publications,
and contributing to teaching & training.*
Selection criteria

   - *You are highly motivated with an ability to work independently and as
   part of a team;*
   - *You hold a PhD degree in the area of quantitative pharmacology,
   bio-engineering or computational biology;*
   - *Experienced with quantitative modeling approaches, e.g. differential
   equations, network analysis, statistical modeling;*
   - *You have experience with relevant software packages such as R,
   Matlab, NONMEM and similar;*
   - *Desirable: knowledge of cardiovascular biology and associated
   quantitative models.*

Research at our Faculty/Institute

The Faculty of Science is a world-class faculty where staff and students
work together in a dynamic international environment. It is a faculty where
personal and academic development are top priorities. Our people are
committed to expand fundamental knowledge by curiosity and to look beyond
the borders of their own discipline; their aim is to benefit science, and
to make a contribution to addressing the major societal challenges of the
future.
The research carried out at the Faculty of Science is very diverse, ranging
from mathematics, information science, astronomy, physics, chemistry and
bio-pharmaceutical sciences to biology and environmental sciences. The
research activities are organised in eight institutes. These institutes
offer eight bachelors’ and twelve master’s programmes. The =
faculty has
grown strongly in recent years and now has more than 1,300 staff and almost
4,000 students. We are located at the heart of Leiden’s Bio Science=
 Park,
one of Europe’s biggest science parks, where university and busines=
s life
come together.

The Leiden Academic Centre for Drug Research (LACDR) is a leading institute
dedicated to world-class research and education in drug discovery and
development. LACDR comprises a diverse and international team of
approximately 150 researchers.
Within the LACDR there is a growing focus on using (translational)
metabolomics and patient derived organ-on-a-chip systems in the areas of
drug research, translational disease research, systems pharmacology,
computational modeling and biostatistics, and integration with
epidemiological studies, genetics and clinical studies.
The Division of Systems Biomedicine and Pharmacology at the LACDR has a
world-leading reputation in the field of metabolomics, and a growing
strength in systems approaches, including genome-scale computational
modelling of biochemical networks.
