National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) Postdoctoral Fellowship Program soliciting applications


The National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) is soliciting applications for its Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.  Two-year fellowships are available in any U.S. laboratory carrying out space-related biomedical or biotechnological research that supports the NSBRI's goals.  NSBRI research addresses and seeks solutions to the various health concerns associated with long-duration human space exploration.
