The Air Force Science & Technology Fellowship Program (AF STFP) offers nationally competitive fellowship awards to postdoctoral and senior scientists to perform collaborative research at U.S. Air Force research facilities across the country. Since 1966, the Air Force S&T Enterprise has hosted over 1,000 fellows under the NRC Research Associateship Programs and many of these researchers have gone on to successful careers in government laboratories. The AF STFP continues this tradition of providing high quality research opportunities with Air Force scientists and engineers at Air Force Research Laboratory, the Air Force Institute of Technology, and the U.S. Air Force Academy.
Awardees have the opportunity to:
Conduct independent research in an area compatible with the Air Force Research Laboratory, the Air Force Institute of Technology, and the U.S. Air Force Academy
Devote full-time effort to research and publication
Access the excellent and often unique facilities of the federal research enterprise
Collaborate with leading scientists and engineers at the sponsoring laboratories
Benefits of an AF STFP award include:
Base stipend starting at $76,542, which is increased based on years of experience past the doctoral degree
Disciplinary supplement (if applicable)
Health insurance, relocation benefits, and a $4,000 professional travel allowance
DESIRED SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
Applicants must be U.S. citizens and must have earned a Ph.D., Sc.D., M.D., D.V.M., or academically equivalent research doctorate before beginning tenure.
