Postdoc Opportunities at ORNL
This program allows recent doctoral and master’s graduates the opportunity to participate in cutting-edge research with ORNL principal investigators. Generally there is no citizenship requirement; however, each position has specific qualifications. Position-specific applications are accepted year-round. Positions are primarily for one-year appointments and may be renewed. A Ph.D. or master’s degree is required, and these positions are primarily for those within five years from their degree award.
The ORNL Advanced Short-Term Research Opportunity Program is a highly selective program and offers challenging short-term research opportunities to recent recipients of master’s and doctoral degrees to conduct research in areas that support ORNL missions in the basic and applied sciences, energy, and environment. Appointments are available in all current research and development programs at the laboratory. There are no citizenship requirements. The program will accept applications at any time. Appointments are for a minimum of one month and may be renewed one time for as long as nine months.
