NIST offers postdoctoral research associateships in collaboration with the National Research Council (NRC). Research topics and associated advisors in the Quantum Sensors Division are listed below. Complete information and applications forms for all NIST NRC postdoctoral offerings are available at http://sites.nationalacademies.org/pga/RAP/index.htm. The NIST program is described at http://nrc58.nas.edu/RAPLab10/Opportunity/Program.aspx?LabCode=50. Click on "Search Opportunities" or go directly to http://nrc58.nas.edu/RAPLab10/Opportunity/Search.aspx. Contact a prospective advisor to discuss details of proposed work and the application process. Application deadlines are February 1 (to begin work between July and March) and August 1 (to begin work between January and September), 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 Ron Goldfarb, goldfarb [at] boulder.nist.gov (goldfarb[at]boulder[dot]nist[dot]gov). U.S. citizenship is required for NRC postdoctoral appointments.
After you have decided on an advisor and a project, register to complete the electronic application at http://nrc58.nas.edu/nrcwebrap/rap/login/login.asp. Instructions for completing the application are at http://sites.nationalacademies.org/pga/RAP/PGA_046398. Once you register, you may return to the system as often as you like. It is not necessary to complete all forms at the same time. You can return after you submit the application to check the status of receipt of your supporting documents.
