The National Research Council (NRC) is inviting applications from scientists and engineers who would like to receive funding under the NRC's Resident, Cooperative, and Postdoctoral Research Associateship Program in 1988. Each interested Ph.D. scientist can apply for $27,150 to $35,000 per year to conduct his or her own research at and on behalf of one of 28 host laboratories in the United States.
Approximately 450 associateships will be awarded in 1988; each can be held for 1 or 2 years, although it may be possible for senior researchers to obtain shorter-term grants. Most of the associateships are available to both U.S. and non-U.S. nationals. Three competitions will be held for the associateships in 1988. The deadlines for postmarking of applications are January 15, 1988 (December 15, 1987 for National Aeronautics and Space Administration), April 15, 1988, and August 15, 1988.
