NRC Post-doctoral Research Fellowship Opportunities for the Complex Microbial Systems Group

We encourage recent PhDs to join our team through postdoctoral fellowships with the National Research Council (NRC) Research Associateship Programs. There is a competitive application process that awards funding based on the merits of an original research proposal, your academic background, and references.

As a postdoctoral fellow in the CMSG, you will have the opportunity to conduct your own research while collaborating with other NIST scientists on a variety of microbiology-related projects.

If you are interested, please contact us and we will have a meeting to introduce our team, discuss our ongoing research, and see if your ideas would be a good match.

Instructions can be found here.

Base Stipend: $74,950 + $3000 travel
