Career Opportunities in Pharmacology

Our primary goal is to train students preparing for careers in teaching and research in an academic setting. In addition, however, there are a variety of other opportunities for those with degrees in pharmacology. Pharmaceutical companies and government research agencies have increasing requirements for scientists trained in pharmacology for the conduct and management of basic research. As a result, there are extensive employment opportunities for graduates of the program. Recent graduates of this department are now pursuing research that includes not only pharmacology but also molecular biology, biochemistry, neurophysiology, oncology, cell biology and medicine.

Postdoctoral Training in Pharmacology

There are opportunities for training and employment in various positions including, for example, research assistants and postdoctoral scholars. Contact individual faculty members for current opportunities.

Interested individuals should submit a letter of application, CV, copies of publications, and the names of three references directly to the faculty member.
