Postdoctoral Fellowships

Solicitation of Funds for University of Maryland Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (M-CERSI) Postdoctoral Fellows in Regulatory Science Program

This is a solicitation of funds for the University of Maryland Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (M-CERSI) Postdoctoral Fellows in Regulatory Science Program.  The objective of the program is to train the next generation of regulatory scientists.  Regulatory science is the science of developing new tools, standards, and approaches to assess the safety, efficacy, quality, and performance of FDA-regulated products.  Regulatory science projects at M-CERSI and the University of Maryland range from drug and biologics discovery, to pharmaceutical quality, to clinical research, and to post-marketing surveillance.

Each Fellow is mentored by a team of three scientists: one from industry, one from University of Maryland, and one from FDA.  Each fellowship is two years in duration.  Year 1 is spent at the University of Maryland.  Year 2 is spent at either FDA or an industrial setting.  Additional training of Fellows involves activities of M-CERSI (e.g. courses, workshop, lectures at FDA).
