The National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) is soliciting applications for its Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. Two-year fellowships are available in any U.S. laboratory carrying out space-related biomedical or biotechnological research that supports the NSBRI’s goals. NSBRI research addresses and seeks solutions to the various health concerns associated with long-duration human space exploration.
Applicants must submit proposals with the support of a mentor and institution, and all proposals will be evaluated by a peer-review panel. The program is open to U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or persons with pre-existing visas obtained through their sponsoring institutions that permit postdoctoral training for the project’s duration.
Detailed program and application submission information is available on the NSBRI Web site at http://www.nsbri.org/Announcements/rfa10-01.html . Notices of intent and applications must be submitted through the NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System (NSPIRES) at http://nspires.nasaprs.com. Notices of intent are due July 23, 2010, and the application deadline is August 18, 2010.
