Postdoctoral Program in Neuroscience

At Pfizer, we believe that a great deal of the most interesting research in neuroscience in the coming decade will be done in industry, and the resources available to postdocs at Pfizer Neuroscience are considerable. Pfizer Neuroscience postdocs are exposed to a range of techniques including molecular/cellular biology, protein biochemistry, in vitro and in vivo electrophysiology, imaging, neurochemistry, systems neuroscience, computational biology, animal models of disease, synapse biology and behavioral/cognitive neuroscience. Neuroscience postdocs at Pfizer pursue basic biology around novel drug targets and disease-relevant molecular, synaptic, circuit, and behavioral mechanisms. Major disease programs include Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, autism, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, among others.  In addition, postdocs at Pfizer get exposed to the art and science of drug discovery, with first hand ability to interact with scientists working to develop new medicines.
