Summer internship announcement for natural product-drug interaction content development

Natural Product-Drug Interaction Summer Internship Available


Apply by May 18th, 2018

The Informatics Core of the Center of Excellence for Natural Product** Drug Interaction (NaPDI) Research is currently recruiting for 2 summer internship positions.**
The candidates will collaborate with a multi-disciplinary team to develop new content and validate existing content for a new natural product-drug interaction data repository. The content will come from drug metabolism/pharmacokinetic and analyticalchemistrystudies completed by the NaPDI Center, other natural product research laboratories, and from studies already published in the literature. The candidates will also 1) provide input on the development of a public website that disseminates natural product-drug interaction data; 2) help develop a recommended approach document for making the data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR); and 3) draft clinical annotations for specific natural product-drug interactions. Candidates should have a strong drug metabolism/pharmacokinetic data analysis background and an interest in informatics. This is a great opportunity for individuals who have recently completed a PharmD or PhD in a Pharmacology related field. Consideration will be given to individuals late in their PharmD or PhD training provided they have sufficient knowledge and experience. The candidate must be comfortable with participation in web meetings since the project will be managed remotely by a multidisciplinary team of advisors.
