Dear list members, The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), in cooperation with the National Research Council (NRC), offers competitive awards for 2-year postdoctoral research appointments in a broad variety of scientific fields. These awards provide a select group of scientists and engineers an opportunity for research in many of the areas that are of deep concern to the scientific and technological community. NIST, with direct responsibilities for the U.S. measurement network, involves its laboratories in the most modern developments in the physical, engineering, information, and mathematical sciences and the technological developments that proceed from them. ...................................................... Some of the opportunities for research at NIST include: Isotopic and Chemical Measurements to Study the Origin and Transport of Atmospheric Contaminants Affecting Pollution and Climate Change [50.83.71.B1659]. Chemical/Isotopic "Fingerprinting" by Gas Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry [50.83.71.B4047]. Gas Chromatography/Combustion/14C Accelerator Mass Spectrometry Applied to the Source Characterization of Chemically Heterogeneous Materials [50.83.71.B4048]. Characterizing and Tracking Anthropogenic Sources of Atmospheric Emissions that Affect Health and Climate [50.83.71.B4049]. Inorganic Mass Spectrometry and Elemental Isotopic Metrology [50.83.91.B1713]. ........................................................ The competition is open only to citizens of the United States who have held the doctorate (Ph.D., Sc.D. or equivalent) for less than five years at the time of application. Annual base salary is $50,000 plus $5,500 for travel, incidental equipment, and other research expenses. Each applicant must develop and submit an original research proposal that relates to a specific research opportunity at NIST, and all application materials must be postmarked no later than January 15, 2000 -- if awarded, appointments normally start about October 1, 2000 although some flexibility exists. Furthers details are available at the Website http://www.nist.gov/oiaa/postdoc.htm and in the NIST 2000 Postdoctoral Research Associateships Book. Copies of this book and application materials may be obtained from Ms. Janice H. Campbell ([log in to unmask]).
