Immediate openings for Scientist II, Senior Scientist and Senior Scientist II in our Simulation Technologies team to develop and apply software tools in the following areas:
- simulation and prediction of compound distribution in humans and animals
- simulation and prediction of in vitro dissolution experiments and IVIVC
- simulation and prediction of compounds’ behavior in in vitro cell culture assays
The responsibilities include:
- Conducting literature searches for data and methods related to the assigned scientific area (in vitro and in vivo measurements of compound interactions with cell or tissue components, and/or in vitro dissolution experiments and formulation design).
- Constructing and validating relevant mechanistic mathematical models (e.g., physiology-based descriptions of compound distribution in different regions of the body, descriptions of compound- and formulation-dependent dissolution, and descriptions of compound interactions with tissue samples and isolated cells).
- Constructing and validating models for translation of in vitro data into meaningful in vivopredictions based on underlying processes occurring in both systems.
- Discuss software application issues with clients and others on telephone, email, Internet meetings, and/or in person.
- Travel to professional conferences as an attendee and/or an exhibitor.
- Make formal presentations at professional conferences.
- Visit customer sites to provide training and consultation.
