The Joint Postdoctoral Program for NIH and NIST
The National Research Council will accept applications for the August 1 deadline for the Joint Postdoctoral Program for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The goal is to cultivate a scientific work force competent in both the biological and the physical sciences. The research opportunities will emphasize interdisciplinary research at the interface of the biological and physical sciences including, but not limited to, structural and computational biology, medical and bioinformatics, genomics and proteomics, tissue engineering, single molecule detection, nanotechnology, and imaging techniques. Each Postdoctoral Associate will have two Advisers, one at the NIH and one at NIST, and the Associate is expected to spend time at both the NIH and the NIST laboratories during the course of the two-year award. The NIH laboratories are located in Bethesda, Rockville, Frederick, and Baltimore, in Maryland; and in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. The NIST laboratories are in Gaithersburg, Maryland, and in Boulder, Colorado.
The competition is open to both U.S. and non-U.S. citizens. The application deadline date is August 1 and awards will be made in late September. Ph.D. recipients within five years of the doctorate at the time of application are eligible to apply. The award offers an annual stipend of $55,000 plus relocation expenses, health insurance coverage, and limited professional travel.
