ASEE/NSF Corporate Research Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

ASEE/NSF Corporate Research Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

The American Society for Engineering Education, with generous support from the National Science Foundation, has just launched the Corporate Research Postdoctoral Fellowship Program to allow 40 highly qualified recent engineering Ph.D. recipients to conduct meaningful, innovative research at some of the nation’s foremost research-performing companies.

The program provides $50,000 toward stipend expenses and $6,500 toward health insurance for each one-year fellowship, and requires that the host corporation pay just $25,000 toward the stipend and a $2,500 administrative fee.

That means the program fellows will receive a minimum of $75,000 while spending a year at some of the leading-edge corporate laboratories in the country. Initial host companies include HP, IBM, and SAP-U.S.

The fellowship offers corporations the opportunity to attract top engineering talent at a fraction of the usual cost while participating in a program aimed at promoting engineering excellence and strengthening our nation’s technical prowess.

Qualifying companies of all sizes are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity as soon as possible by registering at and posting available research positions. Fellowships will be awarded to the first 40 successful matches made between the company and applicant, with the companies making the selection decision.

Research fellows must hold a Ph.D. awarded in an engineering field within the last three years and be citizens, or permanent residents. Interested applicants should begin the process at

Additional program details, along with a sample host agreement, can be found at For further information, contact Artis Hicks (, 202-331-3558) with any questions or concerns.
