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.
Base Stipend: $74,950 + $3000 travel
