Up to five Postdoctoral Research Awards in the amount of $10,000 each, sponsored by ASMS, are presented annually. The purpose of these awards is to promote the professional career development of postdoctoral fellows in the field of mass spectrometry. The awards are open to postdoctoral fellows within three years of completing a Ph.D. or equivalent degree. Applicants must be currently appointed as a postdoctoral fellow in North America (e.g., in academia, industry, a government or national laboratory or at a research institute), and may not have previously received an award under this program. The deadline for submission of completed applications is November 30, 2016. Additional information regarding the program, including eligibility, fiscal details and the application process, may be found at ASMS Postdoctural Awards.
