Fellow (Post Doc)

Organization

College of Veterinary Medicine- Kansas State University

Location

Manhattan, KS

Description

The Institute of Computational Comparative Medicine (ICCM) and Department of Anatomy and Physiology within College of Veterinary Medicine are seeking applicants for a Fellow (Post Doc) to work in the Computational Toxicology, Pharmacokinetic Modeling, and Risk Assessment Laboratory. The incumbent of this position will be responsible for designing and developing computational models, primarily physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models for drugs, environmental chemicals, or nanoparticles in animals or humans for use in food safety and risk assessment to improve public health decision making.

The incumbent of this position will be mainly responsible for the development and applications of computational models, primarily physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models for use in food safety and risk assessment to improve public health decision making. Specific responsibilities include:
- To design and develop PBPK models for drugs in food-producing animals, including swine, beef cattle, dairy cows, sheep, goats, or chickens
- To design and develop PBPK models for environmental chemicals or nanoparticles in rodents and humans
- To convert the developed PBPK models to web-based interfaces
- To apply the developed PBPK models to help address issues related to food safety and risk assessment.

Other responsibilities include:
- Present research findings in professional conferences, such as Society of Toxicology, Food Animal Residue Avoidance Databank (FARAD) Annual Summit, and American Academy of Veterinary Pharmacology and Therapeutics
- Write manuscripts toward publication in high quality peer-reviewed journals in the field of pharmacology and toxicology
- Help prepare documents for grant applications and progress reports
- Collaborate with other lab members and help on other computational modeling projects that are active in the lab, including quantitative systems pharmacology modeling projects, population-based nonlinear mixed effects pharmacokinetic (popPK or NLME-PK) modeling projects, and probabilistic risk assessment projects.
