NIST offers post-doctoral research associateships in collaboration with the National Research Council (NRC). A few research topics and associated advisers in the Magnetic Imaging Group are listed below. Complete information and applications forms for all NIST NRC postdoctoral offerings are available at There, to find opportunities at different laboratories, click on "Getting Started" in the left margin and then "Search for Research Opportunities" on the following page, or go directly to Contact a prospective adviser to discuss details of proposed work and the application process. Application deadlines are February 1 and August 1 but you must start developing your application and proposal months before the deadline. If you do not find a topic that exactly matches your interest, or for referrals or other inquiries, you may contact Gary Zabow, gary.zabow [at] (gary[dot]zabow[at]nist[dot]gov). U.S. citizenship is required for NRC postdoctoral appointments.
