RJR - Golberg Post-Doctoral Fellowship Program

Fellowship Focus

A wide variety of research projects and educational opportunities are available including positions in the fields of genomics and proteomics, behavioral pharmacology and substance abuse.

This program has trained four current and sixteen former Fellows who have progressed to careers in academia, pharmaceutical and chemical industry, contract research firms and regulatory affairs companies in the US, Canada and several other countries.
