The National Research Council (NRC) has announced that some 2500 new full-time associateships will be awarded in 1985 for research in the sciences and engineering. Most of the positions are open to both U.S. and non-U.S. nationals and to both recent Ph.D. holders and senior investigators. Applications must be postmarked no later than January 15, 1985. The announcement of initial awards is expected in March and April 1985.

The associateships will be awarded on a competitive basis for research in chemistry, engineering, and mathematics and in the earth, environmental, physical, space, and life sciences. More than 20 federal agencies or research institutions located throughout the United States will participate.
