RE:     Funding Opportunity: Apply Now For NRC Research Associateship Programs

The National Research Council of the National Academies is opening the application process for 2014 Graduate, Postdoctoral and Senior Research Associateship Programs at over 100 government laboratories and affiliated institutions throughout the United States.

Full-time associateships will be awarded on a competitive basis for research in applied sciences, atmospheric science, chemistry, computer science, earth science, life science, mathematics, medical science, physics and space science. 

Annual stipends for Ph.D recipients range from $42,000 to $80,000, depending on the sponsor. Graduate entry level stipends start at $30,000 and are higher for additional experience. Stipends for senior award recipients are higher.

Awards are for one or two years, renewable for a maximum of three years. Senior applicants who have had a doctoral degree for at least five years may receive awards for shorter periods.

Financial support is provided for allowable relocation expenses and limited professional travel during the award.

The host laboratory provides facilities, support services, necessary equipment and travel needed for conducting approved research programs.

Many of the laboratories are open to both US citizens and foreign nationals.

The first round of applications opens December 1, 2013, with a February 1, 2014 application deadline.
