The University of Arizona seeks to hire an early-career scholar (post-doctoral) to support its innovative Regulatory Science Program, a collaboration between the James E. Rogers College of Law and University of Arizona Health Sciences. This idea of regulatory science is to “modernize our evaluation and approval processes to ensure that innovative products reach the patients who need them, when they need them.” This mission includes both the regulation of the scientific process, especially the protection of human subjects and privacy, and the production of science to answer regulatory questions about safety and efficacy, for all FDA-regulated products, including drugs, biologics, devices, and diagnostics.
The Fellow and Visiting Assistant Professor (VAP) position is a two-year academic commitment. Initially, the VAP will focus on independent and collaborative research, while also teaching in the Regulatory Science Colloquium. The Fellow/VAP will also teach one or more core classes at the law school. In both years, the Fellow/VAP will be part of the academic community of the College, with scholarly mentoring, opportunities to workshop drafts in progress, and a budget for research assistance and professional development.
