Janssen Postdoctoral Program

The Janssen Postdoctoral (Post-Doc) Program, available in the United States and Europe, offers scientists just starting out in their careers the opportunity to gain experience in an industry setting while gaining the skills necessary to position themselves for success in the pharmaceutical industry and academia.

Those accepted in to the Post-Doc program will have the ability to work side-by-side with other scientists within the Janssen community. This will enable them to demonstrate their potential to excel as a leader within a Janssen team. Click to read the Janssen Post-Doc Program brochure (English only).

"Being a Janssen Post-Doc has vastly contributed to my understanding of the role discovery research
plays in the pharmaceutical setting. The cross-discipline, collaborative environment has helped me step
closer to my goal of making a meaningful impact in everyday lives by strengthening my technical skills
and my ability to critically assess data."
