Our Postdoctoral Program at NIBR (Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research) provides postdoctoral scholars with a unique opportunity to perform innovative, fundamental research in a pharmaceutical setting.
Postdocs design and conduct their research with guidance from a principal investigator at Novartis, and an academic advisor where appro-priate. Our postdocs present their work at major research conferences and aim to publish their results in leading peer-reviewed journals.

After their postdoctoral term, fellows continue their careers in academic or pharmaceutical research and a variety of other areas. For further information, please visit our website nibr.com/careers.
