Abstract:
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology (CNST) will award a five-year cooperative agreement totaling $15 million to the University of Maryland (UMD), College Park, Md., to develop and implement a Postdoctoral Researcher and Visiting Fellow Measurement Science and Engineering Program. This program will advance the CNST's mission to support the development of nanotechnology by providing as many as 100 researchers with one- to two-year appointments at the CNST.

NIST to Award Up to $15 Million to UMD to Support Nanotechnology Research

Gaithersburg, MD | Posted on September 29th, 2010

Visiting researchers supported by the grant will aid in the development of measurement and fabrication methods, standards and technology in a wide range of areas including future electronics; nanofabrication and nanomanufacturing; energy transport, storage, and conversion; and bionanotechnology.

In addition to providing new research opportunities for U.S. industrial, university, and government scientists, the grant will provide training for the next generation of nanotechnologists by providing recent Ph.D. recipients postdoctoral research opportunities to work under the mentorship of CNST project leaders and have access to a state-of-the-art nanofabrication facility, the CNST NanoFab. Under the terms of the cooperative agreement, UMD will identify candidates for the available research projects based on cooperatively developed criteria.

The positions are open to all qualified applicants, including non-U.S. citizens.
