Penn State University Postdoc Positions

penn state

Penn State University has partnered with the Defense Threat Reduction Agency to provide postdoctoral positions within the Department of Defense. The Scholars Program is designed to bring the expertise of highly qualified recent Ph.D. graduates to bear on the challenging, but highly rewarding problem of combating and responding to weapons of mass destruction proliferation and use.  These are not lab or bench research positions, but rather an opportunity to research and develop grant topics,  manage grant activities, and sit on inter-agency councils and working groups. Come be on the other side of research: the policy side!! There are currently three open positions; all require US Citizenship to apply.

Life Sciences Postdoctoral Scholar Position

Candidates should have a strong research background and a Ph.D. in one or more of the biologically-oriented physical or computational sciences such as biochemistry, biophysics, molecular biology, analytical chemistry, environmental sciences, radiation biology, bioinformatics, or systems biology inter alia.
