Forging the next frontier with QSP

The Certara Quantitative Systems Pharmacology (QSP) group is a global organization focused on the impactful application of QSP and mechanistic PKPD modeling and simulation in drug discovery and development.

We are leading several first-of-its-kind QSP Consortia with more than 10 global pharmaceutical companies and have a rapidly expanding consultancy portfolio. Our QSP scientists work in close collaboration with other Certara staff and clients to generate and use state-of-the-art mechanistic models for decision making in pharmaceutical R&D.

We are seeking highly motivated and talented QSP modelling experts at all levels, who share our passion for using quantitative approaches to understand and impact complex drug discovery and development questions. Positions are available at various levels of experience across our global locations and for flexible, home-based roles.

QSP Research Associate

Our QSP scientists work in close collaboration with other staff and clients to generate and use state-of-the-art mechanistic models for decision making in pharmaceutical R&D. The models are designed in close dialogue with clients and developed with a view to creating user-friendly tools that will inform drug development programs from discovery to regulatory filing. For this role, you should have postdoctoral experience in systems modelling for drug discovery/ development teams and PhD (or equivalent) in life sciences, engineering, computer sciences, mathematics, physics or equivalent. It is also essential that you have solid understanding of PKPD, pharmacology and biology and its application in drug discovery and development.
