Dear all,
We are looking for bright and motivated candidates to join our
pharmacometric modelling team at the University of Cape Town.

Pharmacometrics is an emerging discipline that uses mathematical and
statistical tools to quantify drug, disease, and trial information to
aid efficient drug development and/or regulatory decisions. It designs
and applies mathematical models to describe the relationship between
drug exposure (pharmacokinetics) and response (pharmacodynamics) for
both desired and undesired effects, and aims to include in such models
the effects of individual patient characteristics.

Our pharmacometrics group has established PK/PD modelling expertise in
the disease area of tuberculosis, HIV, and malaria. It is active
internationally and enjoys on-going collaborations and exchange programs
with some of the major pharmacometric research groups worldwide.

Scholarships at both PhD student and postdoc level are available and
