National Academy of Sciences

The National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences offers awards for postdoctoral scientists and engineers at participating federal laboratories. These awards provide generous stipends (ranging from $34,000 - $61,000, depending on the laboratory), and the opportunity to conduct independent research in some of the best-equipped and staffed laboratories in the country.

We want to ensure that a broad and diverse spectrum of graduate students is aware of these opportunities. Therefore, we are asking for your help in publicizing the program. Could you inform doctoral students in the sciences, engineering, and mathematics at your institution of these opportunities by copying this message to the graduate advisers and graduate students in your department?

For detailed information and application materials, prospective applicants should visit the NRC Research Associateship Programs Web site at Faculty may also be interested in the NRC Senior Associateship Programs, which include both sabbatical and summer faculty opportunities.

There are two remaining application review cycles this year, with postmark deadline dates of April 15 and August 15. Applicants should begin a dialog with prospective Advisers at the laboratory as early as possible before the application deadline.

Thank you for your assistance.
