Offer & Deadlines

PharMetrX has much to offer for both, students who are looking for a PhD opportunity bridging pharmacy & mathematics (PharMetrX Research+ Program) as well as for PhD students who are looking for a structured training curriculum in pharmacometrics & computational disease modelling and a network of peers for exchange (PharMetrX Training+ Program). See below for details and deadlines.


Our Offer

PharMetrX offers two different opportunities for prospective PhD students:

  • As a student of the PharMetrX Research+ Program, you will perform your PhD studies in the fields of pharmacometrics & computational disease modelling with Prof. Dr. Charlotte Kloft (Clinical Pharmacy & Biochemistry, Freie Universität Berlin), and with Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Huisinga (Mathematical Modelling & Systems Biology, Universität Potsdam), be assigned a mentor from one of our Industry Partners and part of the PharMetrX Network of PhD Students, participate in the module curriculum, and be financially supported by an attractive research fellowship.

  • As a student of the PharMetrX Training+ Program, you will participate in the module curriculum and be part of the PharMetrX Network of PhD Students, while you already have a supervisor & funding and not yet completed the first year of your PhD studies when entering the PharMetrX program.

  • Start of application period: Jul 15th, 2021
  • Deadline for applicants to upload their information/documents: Sep 15th, 2021
  • Deadline for the two researchers to upload their letters of recommendation: Sep 15th, 2021
  • Email notification to shortlisted and waiting list candidates: Mid Oct 2021
    Note: We will not notify applicants that are not shortlisted or not on the waiting list. If you do not hear back from us until Mid/End of October than your name is on neither of the two lists.
  • Pre-selection interviews with candidates (online): week 18-22 October 2021 (via Skype, WebEx or Zoom)
  • Personal interviews at Freie Universität Berlin or online --- update ---: 22 + 24 Nov 2021

  • Email offers to selected candidates: within one week after the interviews
  • Start of your PhD research project: oftentimes Mar 2022, but can be determined individually

For all students who need a visa to attend the personal interview in Berlin/Germany: From past experience, the time span between being notified for the personal interview and the date of the personal interview is typically too short for arranging all visa matters. We highly recommend that you arrange a tentative visa interview appointment even before the date of notification to all shortlisted and waiting list candidates so that you do not lose time in visa matters in case you are shortlisted and invited to the personal interviews in Berlin.

  • Deadline for applicants to upload their information/documents: Sep 15th, 2021

The joint module curriculum of the PharMetrX Research+ Program and the PharMetrX Training+ Program will start Mar 2022.

Depending on the pandemic situation in 2021, the modules curriculum might partially/fully be taught in online format. The decision on the format will be taken in due time.
