The post is based in the Pharmacometrics Group led by Prof Standing. 

The group consists of doctoral and postdoctoral researchers who focus on both applied therapeutics in this area and more general methodological questions collaborating across UCL. 

The successful applicant will build patient-level viral dynamic models arising from Phase II clinical trials and routine clinical data. 

These models will be used to inform antiviral drug development and investigate the utility of novel biomarkers in early antiviral therapy. 

This project is a collaboration between clinicians at three major London teaching hospitals, academic pharmacometrics researchers, advisors to the UK COVID-19 therapeutics task force and the anti-infectives pharmacometrics group at Pfizer. The role includes an opportunity of in intercalated internship at Pfizer to gain experience of pharmacometrics model informed antiviral drug development. 

This post is available for 1 year in the first instance. 

PhD in mathematical/statistical modelling of biological systems. Experience of using mathematical/statistical modelling of biological systems to give insights into processes that would not be apparent from statistical summaries of observed data. Fluent in at least one mathematical/statistical programming language. 

Candidates with significant postdoctoral experience in pharmacometrics or a closely related field and named investigator (Co-I or PI) on a successful grant will be considered for at Grade 8. Good organisation and scientific communication skills will be required to coordinate activity across the collaboration team.
