h1. The College of Pharmacy in association with the Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Michigan (U-M) is recruiting a research assistant professor to serve as the deputy director in the Pharmacokinetics Core (PK Core).
This well-funded core is part of a broader drug discovery effort at the U-M campus, and the Deputy Director will play a key role in supporting ongoing collaborations, expanding outreach, and further developing the core.
The PK Core (www.pkcore.org) has four objectives: A.) To support preclinical pharmacokinetics (PK) and metabolism for lead compound selection and dose regimen optimization; B.) To support clinical pharmacokinetics (PK) and optimize dose regimen in clinical studies; C.) To increase grants, publications, and patent applications; D.) To train students and postdoctoral fellows in DMPK studies in drug discovery and clinical trials.
The Deputy Director will work with the PK Core Director to oversee daily operations, including managing personnel and budget; communicating with collaborators; and writing reports, manuscripts, and patents. In addition, the successful candidate will serve as PI, Co-PI, and Co-I on independent grant applications; mentor graduate students and postdoctoral fellows involved in DMPK studies, and teach related courses.
