Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

Postdoctoral fellowship program grants enable early career scientists to design, develop and conduct their own space-related research projects under the guidance of experienced faculty mentors. These two-year fellowships provide a stipend based on NIH guidelines and allowance for healthcare and travel.

• Focus: Proposed by applicant
Schedule: Solicited annually
Annual Funding Amount: Based on NIH guidelines
Duration: 2 years with competitive third year
Review: External scientific peer review 

To support the mentorship of its postdoctoral fellows, TRISH established the Academy of Bioastronautics, a virtual forum for the fellows to share experiences and ask questions to seasoned spaceflight experts. The academy is led by Dr. Larry Young, Apollo Program Professor Emeritus of Astronautics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

TRISH will release an annual solicitation for this opportunity through the NASA Research and Education Support Services (NRESS). Stay tuned to the TRISH and NRESS (NSPIRES) websites for more information. 

Visiting Scientist Program / Faculty Exchange Program
