NASA Postdoctoral Fellowships – Application Deadline March 1, 2012

NASA Postdoctoral Fellowships (NPP) (Applications accepted three times each year: March 1, July 1, and Nov. 1)

The NASA Postdoctoral Program (NPP) offers scientists and engineers unique opportunities to conduct research at NASA Centers. Each NPP fellowship opportunity is designed to advance NASA research in a specific project related to space science, Earth science, aeronautics, space operations, exploration systems, lunar science, or astrobiology. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in hand before beginning the fellowship, but may apply while completing the degree. Applicants must also be U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, or foreign nationals eligible for J-1 status as a research scholar.

Stipends for Postdoctoral Fellows start at $50,000 per year, with moderate supplements for high cost-of-living areas and for certain academic specialties. Funds are available for relocation expenses, up to a specified limit, and health insurance is available through the program. Fellows also receive $8,000 per appointment year to support travel to conferences, meetings, and other activities that directly support their research.
