Scholarship at the department of Work Environment Toxicology

Study Subject: biomedical science
Employer: Karolinska Institute
Level:
PhD/Postdoctoral
Scholarship Description: The Unit of Work Environment Toxicology seeks Post Doc / PhD candidates for development and application of advanced mathematical models related to toxicological risk assessment. The research will be carried out within three projects, namely:
- Development of PBPK models for nano particles
- Toxicokinetic population models as basis for biomonitoring
- Improvements in dose-effect analysis to refine and reduce animal experiments
A substantial part of the work relates to PBPK and Benchmark-Dose (BMD) model development and computer simulations of the toxicokinetic behavior of nanoparticles and biomarkers, as well as dose-biomarker and dose-response relationships. Collaboration with various other research groups is foreseen.

Eligibility:
We are looking for highly motivated graduate/Post Doc students with a degree related to engineering or biomedical science and a strong interest in applied mathematical modeling and toxicology. Documented skills in computer
programming, mathematics, statistics, toxicology and toxicokinetics/pharmacokinetics and are highly advantageous. Excellent skills in written and spoken English and in communication, as well as an ability to interact socially and scientifically with other researchers and students, are essential.

Specific qualifications for Post Doc application.
To qualify, the applicant must hold a doctor’s degree or a foreign qualification deemed equivalent to a doctorate. Applicants who have completed their degree no more than three years before the last date for applications should be given priority. Candidates who have completed their degree earlier than this should receive equal priority if special grounds exist. Postgraduates who have yet to graduate may apply if their public defense is scheduled to take place within three months after the application deadline, in which case verification from the Dissertation Committee or equivalent body must be submitted with the application.
Scholarship Application Deadline: January 7 2011
