Post-doctoral Fellowship in Neuropathology of Alzheimer’s Disease

A postdoctoral fellowship opportunity is available in the Division of Neurotoxicology at the National Center for Toxicological Research (NCTR) on the Jefferson Laboratories Campus of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) located in Jefferson, Arkansas.

The NCTR, located approximately 35 miles southeast of Little Rock, conducts FDA mission-related research that is of critical importance to the Agency in developing a scientifically sound basis for regulatory decisions.  Over 110 Ph.D. scientists and 400 support scientists, on-site-contractors and administrative staff make up a dynamic group of professionals in the NCTR organization. Undergraduate and graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and visiting scientists also pursue education and research opportunities in a multi-disciplinary team atmosphere.  For more information on NCTR research and training activities, visit:
