NIST Postdoctoral Research Associateships Program
NIST/NRC Postdoctoral Research Associateships Program
NIST's Postdoctoral Program supports a nationwide competitive postdoctoral program administered in cooperation with the National Academy of Sciences/National Research Council. The postdoctoral program brings research scientists and engineers of unusual promise and ability to perform advanced research related to the NIST mission, introduces the latest university research results and techniques to NIST scientific programs, strengthens mutual communication with university researchers, shares NIST unique research facilities with the U.S. scientific and engineering communities, and provides a valuable mechanism for the transfer of research results from NIST to the scientific and engineering communities.
Detailed information on procedures and all necessary application materials and supporting documents are available from the NRC Research Associateship Program which also includes NIST-specific information on the program.
For the most current list of opportunities, please refer to the NRC website page for the NIST NRC Postdoctoral Research program.
To apply to be an adviser for this program, please complete the Research Adviser Nomination Form, which includes the proposed research opportunity, and return to Dr. Susan Heller-Zeisler at the International and Academic Affairs Office. Prior to submission, the adviser must have sign-off of their nomination form, and their research opportunity description from their NIST Division Chief. Following review of the information, the nomination form will be submitted by IAAO to NRC for consideration.
For additional information on this program, please contact Dr. Susan Heller-Zeisler.
