OverviewPostdoctoral Fellows
Postdoctoral Program
The Department of Neurobiology is committed to providing postdoctoral fellows with outstanding mentors for postdoctoral research, and an environment that ensures broad exposure to the full spectrum of neuroscience. Approximately fifty postdoctoral fellows are currently associated with the eighteen primary faculty members in Neurobiology.

Application for postdoctoral fellowship
Candidates interested in pursuing a postdoctoral fellowship in neurobiology should identify individual faculty members with whom they would like to work and contact those faculty members directly. See the Faculty and Research page for the research interests and contact information for individual faculty members.

The Postdoctoral Training Program in Fundamental and Translational Neuroscience at Duke University Medical Center
The intent of this three-year program for recent PhD and MD graduates is to train both fundamental and translational neuroscientists in ways that will promote crossover and understanding between the two areas.  All training faculty members have either primary or secondary appointments in the Department of Neurobiology and ties to various centers--Brain Imaging & Analysis Center, Cancer Center, Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, and Center for Neuroengineering. The program is headed by James O. McNamara, director, and David Fitzpatrick, co-director.

Potential applicants should first contact the individual faculty members with whom they would like to work and request their sponsorship for positions in the program. A National Institutes of Health training grant award provides stipend support for the first year during which time the trainee will apply for ongoing funding from other sources to cover the second and third years.

Here you will find information for new, old, and international postdocs, as well as links to social events organized by DUPA and other postdoctoral organizations in the research triangle area.
