Post-Doctoral Fellowships at the University of Southern California and Allergan, Plc
Clinical Pharmacology and Translational Nonclinical Development Fellowship
This nonlaboratory-based one-year Clinical Pharmacology and Translational Nonclinical Development Fellowship focuses on developing skills of a modern translational scientist. The fellow will be provided opportunities to gain expertise in nonclinical and early clinical development through honing skills in areas such as nonclinical safety assessment, pharmacokinetics, clinical pharmacology, and pharmacometrics. As part of the training, the fellow may engage in design and execution of nonclinical toxicology and pharmacokinetic studies, design and execution of phase 1 and/or phase 2a clinical studies, development of translational strategies, preparation of regulatory documents, as well as PK/PD and pop-PK modeling. The candidate will also participate in cross-functional team interactions spanning all of Allergan’s therapeutic areas. This advanced hands-on training program provides opportunities to engage in a broad range of activities within nonclinical and early clinical development and can be tailored towards specific needs and background of the candidate.
