PhD Scholarship in Computational Optimisation of Biopharmaceutical Drug Development
Operational Research & Management Sciences group
In collaboration with the Future Targeted Manufacturing Healthcare Hub, Warwick Business School is offering one fully-funded PhD scholarship in the area of computational optimisation of biopharmaceutical drug development. The goal of this PhD project is to develop decision-support tools capable of integrating capacity planning and portfolio selection for companion-diagnostic-driven stratified protein medicine, in particular during the drug development phase. A particular challenge in this domain is the high degree of uncertainty due to uncertain demands, production rates and clinical trial outcomes. Furthermore, there are often multiple objectives and the evaluation of solutions is computationally expensive.
The successful applicant will be working with a first class team of researchers at Warwick and other leading universities in the UK. An MSc/MEng in a relevant area is required. We expect excellent communication skills and experience in programming.
The application deadline for this scholarship is Monday 15 May 2017.
