Summary of Duties

The laboratory of Dr. Mary Paine in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences is seeking a motivated and experienced Postdoctoral Research Associate with a PhD in pharmaceutical sciences or related discipline with an emphasis in pharmacokinetic (PK) and physiologically-based PK (PBPK) modeling and simulation, drug metabolism/ transport, and xenobiotic-drug interactions.

This position will be funded by the NIH Center of Excellence for Natural Product-Drug Interaction Research. The mission of the Center is to provide leadership in the study of natural product-drug interactions, with the ultimate goal of developing Recommended Approaches to determine the clinical relevance of pharmacokinetic interactions between natural products (e.g., herbal supplements and other botanicals) and FDA-approved medications.

Research projects will focus on understanding mechanisms underlying natural product-drug interactions using in vitro (drug metabolism and transport assays), in silico (PBPK modeling and simulation), and in vivo (human clinical studies) methods.

Additional Information

Washington State University’s health sciences and research campus is located in the University District along the riverfront in downtown Spokane. The University has relocated all of the health sciences disciplines and built new facilities on the campus in recent years. The new construction includes an $80 million Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Sciences Building and a $34.6 million Nursing Building.
