Postdoctoral Scientist – Wolfe Laboratories, Inc

Wolfe Laboratories, Inc. has an immediate need for which your current, or recent, graduates may be interested. This is a newly-created position due to our growth. May, or even June, 2017, graduates are certainly eligible to apply as well as recent grads.

I want to point out that our Postdoctoral Scientist positions are not for a specific length of time, as are most academic postdoc roles. This is a full time “permanent” job, with the anticipation of once the postdoc attains certain milestones they are then moved into a different position in the company (Scientist I, Project Manager, and other opportunities as well).

Thank you for your assistance in distributing these to your students, and hopefully I’ll get a lot of interest! As usual, should you have any questions, feel free to ask away. Thanks.
