Research professor or postdoctoral positions in systems/synthetic biology are immediately 
available at the Yoon Lab (Systems Biology) in the Department of Chemical Engineering, University 
of Massachusetts Lowell (MA, USA). The research group is a core part of the Massachusetts 
BioManufacturing Center (www.uml.edu/mbmc) and Biomanufacturing Consortium 
(www.uml.edu/bpqc). Currently we are looking for experienced and highly motivated researcher to 
support Population PKPD modeling project of LAI (Long Acting Injectables), and biomanufacturing 
research projects. The appointments are funded through FDA and pharmaceutical companies. The 
initial position is for one year, with the second and third year of employment dependent upon 
performance in the previous year.

Work for this position will largely involve developing mechanistic and statistical models for 
population PKPD models. Strong statistical and mechanistic modeling, and analytical skills are 
required. PKPD modeling, Gene expression, cDNA sequence, protein, metabolites, glycosylation, 
trace element profiling datasets of media and cell-culture samples will be addressed. 

FDA project requires some project management skills. The University of Massachusetts Lowell is
