"Door to the Future" Highlights Postdoctoral Program

Every year, the Materials Science and Engineering Laboratory (MSEL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology appoints 10 to 15 new postdoctoral research fellowships under a program sponsored by NIST and managed by the National Research Council. According to MSEL Acting Director, Eric Amis, NIST programs are significantly enriched by the fresh ideas and talent brought by NRC postdocs, who enjoy close interactions with a broad range of experienced researchers and access to world-class equipment and resources.

A new NIST video, "Door to the Future" highlights this program. MSEL has nearly 200 postdoctoral research opportunities that span the materials spectrum, from metals and semiconductors to polymers and biomaterials. These include exciting opportunities in materials measurements for applications in electronics, energy, healthcare, nanotechnology, physical infrastructure and manufacturing.

Application deadlines are Feb. 1 and Aug. 1 of each year. for more information see "NRC Postdoctoral Research Fellowships @ MSEL" at www.nist.gov/msel/postdoc.cfm.

NIST generally hires approximately 60 NRC postdoctoral fellows annually. In addition to materials science, research opportunities are available in chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer sciences and engineering. For more information, see "NIST Postdoctoral Research Associateships Program." at www.nist.gov/oiaa/postdoc.htm.
