RJR-Leon Golberg Post-doctoral Fellowships

The Department of Physiology and Pharmacology of Wake Forest School of Medicine and the RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company established a post-doctoral fellowship training program that honors an eminent toxicologist, the late Dr. Leon Golberg.  The fellowships offer salary funding at the NIH level, an appointment as a WFU employee, and health care insurance.  A wide variety of research projects and educational opportunities are available. The Fellow will spend up to two years under the guidance of a faculty mentor, along with extensive interaction with other faculty members.  Some fellowship positions explore a joint project between a medical school faculty member and a company scientist.  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.   

Some fellowship positions are available in fields of genomics and proteomics, behavioral pharmacology, and substance abuse.  For further information contact Dr. Jack Strandhoy at
