National Space Biomedical Research Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

NSBRI is a NASA-funded, non-profit research consortium charged with developing biomedical countermeasures and technologies for potential health problems that could occur in astronauts either during long-duration spaceflight, on exploration missions, or upon return to Earth.  NSBRI’s current program, aligned with NASA’s exploration objectives, consists of approximately 44 science and technology projects organized into research teams.


NSBRI invites ground-based research applications for Postdoctoral Fellowships. Minority.Scientist briefly summarized the details of this fellowship opportunity below, but please review the entire application for more information. Good luck!

Proposals:  Proposals can either address topics of interest to one of the seven existing NSBRI research teams, or the supplemental cross-cutting research area of Food Science, which has importance to both NSBRI and the NASA Human Research Program (HRP). The seven research teams are as follows:

  • Cardiovascular Alterations
  • Human Factors and Performance
  • Musculoskeletal Alterations
  • Neurobehavioral and Psychosocial Factors 
  • Radiation Effects 
  • Sensorimotor Adaptation
  • Smart Medical Systems and Technology


Who can apply: The program is open to U.S. citizens, permanent residents or persons with pre-existing visas obtained through their sponsoring institutions that permit postdoctoral training for the project’s duration.

Duration: Postdoctoral Fellowships will be competitively awarded for two years, with an opportunity for a third year renewal, in any laboratory in the U.S. conducting biomedical/biotechnological research aligned with NSBRI’s goals

Stipend: First year- $42,500; Second year- $43,775

Deadline: June 7, 2013

Welcome to Minority Scientist

I'm Minority Scientist and I started this blog to
1) share useful information to assist minorities, including women and underrepresented peoples, navigate a career in scientific research and
2) explore the world of science through the eyes of someone who
pursued a PhD in the biomedical sciences as a single parent.

In the spirit of sharing, if you find info here useful for you or someone you know... pass it on! If you would like to share information, send an email to
