November 30, 2015 Karen Popp FellowshipsResearch

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine announce postdoctoral, senior and graduate fellowship opportunities in the 2016 NRC Research Associateship Programs. These awards are administered on behalf of federal research laboratories and affiliated institutions in over 100 locations throughout the United States. These programs provide opportunities for Ph.D., Sc.D. or M.D. scientists and engineers of unusual promise and ability to perform research on problems largely of their own choosing, yet compatible with the research interests of the sponsoring laboratory. Initiated in 1954, the NRC Research Associateship Programs have contributed to the career development of more than 16,000 scientists and engineers ranging from young researchers and recent doctoral recipients to distinguished senior scientists.

Application deadlines are February 1, May 1, August 1 and November 1 for reviews conducted in mid-March, mid-June, mid-September and mid-December, respectively.

Detailed program information including instructions on how to apply online, is available on the Fellowhips Office website at
