Graduate, Postdoctoral and Senior Research Awards

Posted: June 21, 2010

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; $30,000 - $35,000 for graduate level recipients) 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.

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 rap@nas.edu.

There are four review cycles annually. Remaining deadline dates for 2010 are August 1 and November 1. Deadlines for 2011 are:

  • February 1
  • May 1
  • August 1
  • November 1

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