Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in Biology: The Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) awards Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in Biology to recent recipients of the doctoral degree for research and training in selected areas of biology supported by BIO to encourage independence early in their research careers and to permit them to pursue their research and training goals in the most appropriate research locations regardless of the availability of funding for the Fellows at that site. With this solicitation, BIO is establishing a program solicitation for announcing selected areas for its postdoctoral research fellowships. Currently the BIO programs are: Broadening Participation of Under-represented Groups in Biology and Biological Informatics. It is expected that in future years, these areas will change as new scientific and infrastructure opportunities present themselves; and this solicitation will be changed to reflect the areas being funded. The fellowships are also designed to provide active mentoring of the Fellows by the sponsoring scientists who will benefit from having additional members in their research groups. The research and training plan of each fellowship must address important scientific questions in contemporary biology within the scope of the BIO Directorate and the specific guidelines in this fellowship program solicitation. Because the fellowships are offered only to postdoctoral scientists early in their careers, doctoral advisors are encouraged to discuss the availability of BIO fellowships with their graduate students early in their doctoral programs. Fellowships are awards to individuals, not institutions, and are administered by the Fellows.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Organization Limit: Only individuals may apply. NSF postdoctoral fellowships are awards to individuals, and applications are submitted directly by applicants to NSF. However, applications must include sponsoring scientists' statements and the applicants must affiliate with institutions (e.g., colleges and universities, and privately-sponsored nonprofit institutes and museums, government agencies and laboratories, and, under special conditions, for-profit organizations) anywhere in the world. PI Limit: Applicants must be U.S. citizens (or nationals) or legally admitted permanent residents of the United States (i.e., have a "green card") at the time of application; earn or plan to earn the doctoral degree in a scientific or engineering field prior to the requested start date of the fellowship; either currently be a graduate student or, at the deadline date, have served in a position requiring the doctoral degree for no more than 12 full time months (or 24 months for the Minority Postdoctoral Research Fellowships) since earning the degree. There is a one time exception to this criterion for Biological Informatics in November, 2007 only, as described below. ;must present a research and training plan that falls within the purview of BIO and includes the required information for the specific competition as described below; select a host institution and sponsoring scientist different from the doctoral degree and current position or provide compelling justification for why such a change is not being proposed; not have received Federal funding of more than $20,000 as PI or co-PI (except graduate fellowships and doctoral dissertation improvement grants); not have submitted concurrently the same project to another NSF program; not be a named participant on any other proposal submitted to NSF, including regular research proposals, concurrent with the fellowship application, regardless of who is the named principal investigator; AND meet other limitations on eligibility imposed within the specific competitive areas, if any. If you fail to meet any eligibility criterion, your application will be returned without review.
