Funding to do research in Federal Labs

Dear Department Head:

As you may know, the National Research Council of the National Academies
sponsors a number of awards for graduate, postdoctoral and senior
researchers at federal laboratories and affiliated institutions. These
awards provide generous stipends ($42,000 - $75,000 per year for recent
Ph.D. recipients and higher for additional experience; Master's level
stipends are $38,000 per annum), and the opportunity to do independent
research in some of the best-equipped and staffed laboratories in the
U.S. Research opportunities are open to U.S. citizens, permanent
residents, and for some of the laboratories, foreign nationals.

We ask your assistance in informing students and faculty in your
department of these opportunities by copying this message to each one.

Detailed program information, including instructions on how to apply
online and a list of participating laboratories, is available on the NRC
Research Associateship Programs Web site at:


Questions should be directed to the NRC at 202-334-2760 (phone) or <>.

There are four review cycles annually. Deadline dates for 2010 are:

February 1, 2010
May 1, 2010
August 1, 2010
November 1, 2010

Applicants should begin a dialogue with prospective Advisers at the lab
as early as possible, before their anticipated application deadline.

Thank you for your assistance.

Sincerely yours,
H. Ray Gamble
Director of the Fellowship Programs
