    SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellowship 2019-2020

    This is a long shot as there never seem to be a lot of us, but is there anyone else out there who applied to the SSHRC postdoctoral fellowship competition this time around?? Hopefully letters should go out next month, so wondering if anyone is in the same waiting boat as I am. This is my second time applying to the postdoc competition, I was unsuccessful last year so fingers crossed this time!
  2. NRC Research Associateship Programs The National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine offers postdoctoral and senior research awards on behalf of 23 U.S. federal research agencies and affiliated institutions with facilities at over 100 locations throughout the U.S. and abroad. We are actively seeking highly qualified candidates including recent doctoral recipients and senior researchers. Applications are accepted during 4 annual review cycles (with deadlines of February 1, May 1, August 1, November 1). Awardees have the opportunity to: · conduct independent research in an area compatible with the interests of the sponsoring laboratory · devote full-time effort to research and publication · access the excellent and often unique facilities of the federal research enterprise · collaborate with leading scientists and engineers at the sponsoring laboratories Benefits of an NRC Research Associateship award include: · 1 year award, renewable for up to 3 years · Stipend ranging from $45,000 to $80,000, higher for senior researchers · Health insurance, relocation benefits, and professional travel allowance DESIRED SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE Applicants should hold, or anticipate receiving, an earned doctorate in science or engineering. Degrees from universities abroad should be equivalent in training and research experience to a degree from a U.S. institution. Some awards are open to foreign nationals as well as to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. ABOUT THE EMPLOYER The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Fellowships Office has conducted the NRC Research Associateship Programs in cooperation with sponsoring federal laboratories and other research organizations approved for participation since 1954. Through national competitions, the Fellowships Office recommends and makes NRC Research Associateship awards to outstanding postdoctoral and senior scientists and engineers for tenure as guest researchers at participating laboratories. A limited number of opportunities are available for support of graduate students in select fields. For more information or to apply visit the NRC Research Associateship Programs.
  3. Anyone heard back about the NSF PRFB? 6 months is quickly approaching and my status is still listed as "pending". Wondering if anyone has gotten word (good or bad) yet? This waiting game is killing me....
  4. Hi everyone, since my last thread that I inquired about the general timeline to apply/become a postdoctoral researcher positions, I have decided to try to graduate within the next 7 months. I recently have compiled a list of PIs that I'm interested working with, so that as soon as my recently submitted paper is accepted, I'll start search for my next stop. However, even though I have a general idea how I should construct my cover letter (e.g. discuss why I am interested in a particular lab/research, what I can offer to that lab, etc.), I'm still trying to figure out how should I strategically inquire a potential postdoctoral position -- through e-mail and in-person -- to a lab that does not advertise such position. E-mail: How to make your cover letter standout enough that the PI would read it, or, wouldn't go straight to trash bin? (Not sure if the "game" is different than applying a position that is advertised.) *In-person: What would be the best approach to bring up/discuss/inquire possible postdoc positions if the potential PI is giving a presentation? (*A conference/symposium without neither a poster session nor social activity(ies). Hence the assumption here is that I would try to talk to the PI before or after his/her presentation.) Thank you!
  5. Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington has two openings for Post-Doctoral Research Fellows: Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, Immunogenetics: http://bit.ly/2fe6SsO Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, B Cell Response to Vaccination: http://bit.ly/2fmUSnq At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutch's pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer with minimal side effects. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation's first and largest cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women's Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network.
  6. Hi folks, I am in a situation where I may either graduate in Spring/Summer 2017 (lack of funding), or in Spring/Summer 2018 (if secure a dissertation fellowship). Since neither alumni from my lab nor alumni from my program (STEM) typically go into academia to be a postdoc, I would like to know at what point of time should I do such or certain things, so that I can ultimately getting a post-doctoral research position that I want, presumably at the beginning of a Fall semester/quarter or as soon as I fulfilled all the requirements that complete my program. I think that inputs from those who are graduating / graduated from grad school can be gathered and combined into a "timeline", so that future viewers/readers of the forum can use it as a guidance. I would assumed that the first step is when "you about to start / started writing your dissertation", or "meet individuals / POI who you wanted to work for as a postdoc". Many thanks in advance! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ - [If necessary] The summer before graduation -- prepare research and/or teaching statement(s) - July-December the year before graduation -- apply post-doctoral research fellowship(s)
  7. Hello, I have received a SSRCH postdoctoral fellowship starting next year. The award holder's guide B specifies that postdoctoral fellowship holders may teach the equivalent of one full course per year, but that no other employment is permitted. I currently own a sole proprietorship that I run as an independent contractor/self-employed worker on my spare time. Is this forbidden by the SSRCH? If so, that means I need to give up on my small business? Does anyone knows if the SSHRC has access to the taxes filed with the government? Thanks in advance for your advice.
