Last year I had a heck of a time finding a summary of postdoctoral fellowships to apply for, so thought my compilation might assist others. This list is by no means comprehensive, but it’s a start. I’m happy to update this post with other suggestions (and links and descriptions). I especially tried to include whether the fellowships are available to international students or not. I’ve ordered them by approximate submission date, but as submission dates change every year, please don’t rely on these. Similarly, the links were active at the time of this posting. If they aren’t working, you can probably find the fellowship with a simple google search.
– Due ~October– LSRF awards fellowships across the spectrum of the life sciences: biochemistry; cell, developmental, molecular, plant, structural, organismic population and evolutionary biology; endocrinology; immunology; microbiology; neurobiology; physiology; virology.– Similar structure as NSF postdoc– Only one LSRF fellow allowed in a lab at any given time– U.S. citizens are eligible to work in any geographic location while holding an LSRF fellowship. Non-U.S. citizens must work in a U.S. laboratory to be eligible for an LSRF fellowship.
– Due ~October– The focus this year is, “Intersections of Biology and Mathematical and Physical Sciences“.– applicants must be U.S. citizens (or nationals) or permanent residents of the United States (i.e., have a “green card”) at deadline.– Due ~December– Applicants must be citizens or non-citizen nationals of the United States, or have been lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence.– Due ~December– Has both US and International options– Due ~January– All women scientists that are conducting research in the natural sciences regardless of nationality are eligible for application for any of the SDE/GWIS Fellowships.– Due ~March
