Author: [AUTHOR] Published on 9/30/2019 10:21:00 AM

Applications are Being Accepted for Editor-in-Training, CPT: Pharmacometrics & Systems Pharmacology
CPT: Pharmacometrics & Systems Pharmacology (PSP) is a cross-disciplinary journal devoted to publishing advances in quantitative (e.g. modeling and simulation) methods as applied in pharmacology, physiology and therapeutics in humans. PSP is an online only, Open Access journal that provides a unique international forum for scientists in the pharmacometrics and systems pharmacology space and is fully indexed in PubMed. The journal has a current CiteScore of 3.24.

The Editors-in-Training will be part of the core editorial team of PSP and will be involved in the day-to-day manuscript consideration processes, including peer-review and decision-making, assist with strategic planning, and will be mentored by experienced members of the PSP editorial team. The Editors-in-Training will be responsible for helping the journal develop and implement its social media strategy as well as foster and further develop the engagement of the ASCPT Early Career Community with PSP.

The successful candidate will be an outstanding early career scientist with a passion for systems pharmacology and/or pharmacometrics, science, patients, drug development and use, and peer-reviewed publishing. We do not require that candidates have any editorial experience; however, we are looking for someone with an outstanding publication record (commensurate with career stage) and a strong motivation to get involved in a top-tier peer-reviewed journal. Candidates will have an MD, PhD, or PharmD and several years of postdoctoral experience in systems pharmacology and/or pharmacometrics or a related discipline. Candidates should either be a current member of ASCPT or join if selected for the role. Ideally, candidates should be active in the ASCPT Early Career Community or an equivalent network and have some experience with peer review. Candidates should have the skills and vision to take the social media presence of PSP to the next level. Perhaps most importantly, candidates will genuinely feel that this is a unique and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn and contribute. This role is a one-year education and training opportunity for the selected candidates and, as such, no compensation will be provided.

To be considered for this new position, please send your CV and one page letter of interest to Elise Laffman-Johnson at elise@ascpt.org by COB, Monday, November 4, 2019.  Interviews will be held via Zoom on Friday, November 15, 2019.

Any additional information can be obtained from Elise Laffman-Johnson at elise@ascpt.org.
