This program awards a two-year postdoctoral fellowship of
$120,000 over the course of two years. It goes to a PI in environmental science or engineering for the purpose of appointing a
Postdoctoral Fellow in environmental chemistry.
The National Academies: Research Associateship Programs
The Research Associateship Program (RAP) is administered
through the National Research Council. It is offering several fellowship and research opportunities for graduate students and postdocs
at sponsoring federal laboratories and affiliated institutions.
American Water Works Association: Academic
The American Water Works Association’s (AWWA’s) Academic
Achievement Awards recognize excellence for two master’s and
two doctoral degree students. To be eligible, they must submit theses or dissertations relevant to the water supply industry.
Alfred P. Sloan Foundation: Sloan Research Fellowships
Two-year Sloan Research Fellowships seek to stimulate fundamental research by early-career chemists and scientists. Applicants
must possess a Ph.D. received within the last six years and hold a
tenure-track (or equivalent) position.
American Association of University Women (AAUW):
AAUW extends opportunities that support female scholars who
are completing dissertations, planning research leave from accredited universities, or preparing research for publication. AAUW
evaluates candidates on the basis of scholarly excellence, the quality and individuality of the project design, and the individual’s active commitment to helping women and girls through community
American Chemical Society: Graduate Student Award in
Computational Physical Chemistry
Two awards will be offered by ACS’s Physical Chemistry Division
and sponsored by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, which is located at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (NCSA). The first one offers up to 60,000 service units
on NCSA’s TeraGrid, and the second award offers up to 30,000 service units. Any graduate student (regardless of citizenship), who is a
member of ACS or whose adviser is one, is eligible to apply.
Miller Institute for Basic Research in Science:
Miller Research Fellowship
The University of California, Berkeley’s Miller Institute is offering
a fellowship to provide the opportunity for individuals to pursue
their research on the Berkeley campus. Applicants must either
be close to receiving or have been recently awarded their Ph.D.s.
(A short postdoc does not exclude eligibility.) In addition, they
cannot have not worked as an Assistant or Associate Professor or
Professor. The fellowships run for three years and offer a yearly
stipend of $63,000, with annual increases, plus a $10,000 annual
WCC/Eli Lilly Travel Award
The ACS Women Chemists Committee (WCC) and Eli Lilly and
Company co-sponsor funding to assist female chemists with the
cost of traveling to meetings where they present their research.
Female undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral chemists are
eligible to apply .
CIBA/YCC Young Scientist Travel Award
The CIBA Foundation and YCC offer this award to scientists
under the age of 35 who hold postdoctoral appointments or have
started their careers within the past 7 years. Awardees receive
$1,000 toward travel, registration, and accommodations for a national or regional ACS meeting.
Chemical Heritage Foundation Travel Grants
The Chemical Heritage Foundation is offering travel grants to
help defray travel and accommodation costs for researchers wishing to use their Beckman Center for the History of Chemistry
collection for short-term (one to two weeks) research. Awardees
must live more than 75 miles from Philadelphia to be eligible for
this $750 per week award.
PhD TV is looking for contributors to help build and develop
their programming content. They encourage people to apply if
they are conducting research on a “cool” topic that would make
an interesting feature on one of PhD TV’s programs or videos.
