CRA Academy and Fellows Programs
This postdoctoral fellowship program enables fellows to gain research expertise in drug development, quantitative pharmacology, and translational research while preparing them for careers as clinical pharmacologists, or clinical pharmacokineticists in an industrial, academic, or regulatory setting. Fellows will first participate in clinical pharmacology and drug transport and metabolism studies with faculty at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, as well as enroll in advanced courses on PK/PD and clinical research methods.
In their second year, fellows will work at Allucent, applying state-of-the-art quantitative methodologies to drug development, such as conventional and population PK and PD analyses, exposure-response, and clinical trial simulations. Fellows will also contribute to the design and analysis of first-time-in-human, proof-of-concept, drug-drug interaction, or other clinical pharmacology studies and use advanced techniques as they participate in modeling and simulation efforts for quantitative decision-making.
The ideal candidate should have a Pharm.D., Ph.D., or M.D. and possess strong analytical skills, excellent written and verbal communication skills, good organizational abilities, and evidence of leadership, independence, and teamwork. A background in pharmacokinetics is preferred.

Building upon Pharm-Olam and CATO-SMS legacy programs, the Allucent CRA Academy Training Program provides a hybrid approach to learning the needed skills and best practices to effectively monitor a clinical research study. This is the first step in pursuing an exciting and desirable career path connected to ensuring the safety, rights, and well-being of subjects participating in clinical research studies. The program is designed to allow for graduation as an assigned monitoring CRA in as short as four weeks. During this time, our candidates participate in live webinars, standard course work, interactive learning, on-the-job training, and online simulated monitoring scenarios to objectively demonstrate and check your progress. Coursework and interactive learning is based on ICH GCP and applicable regulations and guidelines combined with Standard Operating Procedures to ensure consistent quality and compliance. Live webinar instructors include Allucent subject-matter experts spanning the globe. This academic program is supported by visits on-site with experienced CRAs to learn tips for Source Data review, organizational skills, and communication with site staff. Following graduation of the program and assignment or alignment to a Sponsor/Trial, you will continue to have accompanied visits to ensure opportunities for continued improvement, career growth, and advancement. Academy members are full-time Allucent employees and are eligible for all benefits available at Allucent.
