Job Title: FDA Secondary Pharmacology Analysis Fellowship
Job Number:
Organization: U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
Posted: 8/3/2020
Type: Full-Time
Number of Openings: 1
Location: Silver Spring,  MD   
Position Description: *Applications will be reviewed on a rolling- basis.

A research opportunity is available in the Office of Translational Sciences/ Office of Clinical Pharmacology (OCP), Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Secondary pharmacology data is regularly submitted with Investigational New Drug (IND) applications. These data are binding assays at multiple (80-100) targets that can assess a drug candidate's potential to induce adverse events. However, this data is currently housed with individual applications in the Electronic Document Room and is submitted in a PDF form, making it difficult to extract and analyze. This project will explore a data extraction and analysis tool to allow for better accessibility of these datasets.

The participant will be trained within multiple interdisciplinary teams across the Agency to learn about the regulatory submission and review process, which will provide a broad learning experience about the workings of the FDA and general public health. Additionally, the participant will gain understanding about the submission challenges surrounding secondary pharmacology data as well as the impact of secondary pharmacology and its relationship to adverse events.

This program, administered by ORAU through its contract with the U.S. Department of Energy to manage the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education, was established through an interagency agreement between DOE and FDA. The initial appointment is for one year, but may be renewed upon recommendation of FDA contingent on the availability of funds. The participant will receive a monthly stipend commensurate with educational level and experience. Proof of health insurance is required for participation in this program. The appointment is full-time at FDA in the Silver Spring, Maryland, area. Participants do not become employees of FDA, DOE or the program administrator, and there are no employment-related benefits.
