NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Programs
April 12 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Overview of Webinar:
The National Science Foundation offers Postdoctoral Research Fellowships to provide opportunities
for recent doctoral graduates to obtain additional training, to gain research experience under the sponsorship of
established scientists, and to broaden their scientific horizons beyond their undergraduate and graduate training.
Postdoctoral Fellowships are further designed to assist new scientists to direct their research efforts across traditional
disciplinary lines and to avail themselves of unique research resources, sites, and facilities, including at foreign locations. NSF seeks to promote the participation of scientists from all segments of the scientific community, including those from underrepresented groups, in its research programs and activities; the postdoctoral period is an important level of professional development in attaining this goal. NSF offers Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in Polar Programs, Earth Sciences, Ocean Sciences, Atmospheric and Geospatial Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, Astronomy and Astrophysical Sciences, and Social Sciences. The NSF Engineering Directorate offer an engineering postdoctoral program (eFellows) for early-career PhDs in engineering fields. The eFellows program is administered by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) with funding provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The webinar with provide program descriptions and eligibility requirements for NSF postdoctoral research programs.
