National Research Council of the National Academies Postdoctoral and Senior Research Associateship Program
The NRC Research Associateship Programs (RAP) promote excellence in scientific and technological research conducted by the US government through the administration of programs offering graduate, postdoctoral, and senior level research opportunities at sponsoring federal laboratories and affiliated institutions. Prospective applicants select a research project or projects from among a large group of Research Opportunities available through the website. Prior to completing an application, prospective applicants should contact the Research Adviser listed with the selected Research Opportunity to assure that funding will be available if the application is recommended by NRC Research Associateship Programs panels. Applications are accepted four times each year.
