Institutional Postdoc Program
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is known for delivering transformational science and technology and accelerating the rate of innovation in energy, environment, and national security.
Postdoctoral research associates play a vital role in completing the ongoing research objectives for projects across the Laboratory. Each of the four research directorates has a sizable postdoctoral researcher contingent collaborating on its projects. All postdoctoral researchers are hired as employees with a competitive salary and benefits, and most positions also have paid relocation.
Postdoctorate Researcher Positions
- Linus Pauling Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship Program
The centerpiece of the PNNL institutional postdoctoral program is the Linus Pauling Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. PNNL's Linus Pauling Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship is designed for the next generation of scientists and engineers who will push the boundaries of science to world-recognized discoveries. This program is designed to raise the overall value of a postdoctoral experience at PNNL.
- William Wiley Postdoctoral Fellowship
The purpose of the William Wiley Postdoctoral Fellowship is to attract high-performing, newly graduated, junior scientists who have the potential to become scientific staff at EMSL. The fellowship honors the distinguished career of Dr. William Wiley, the former director of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and visionary leader of EMSL. Candidates must display superb ability in scientific research and must show definite promise of becoming outstanding leaders in the research they pursue.
Postdoc Program Expectations
Postdocs should receive appropriate recognition for the contribution they make to the research enterprise. To ensure that postdoctoral appointments are beneficial to all concerned, all parties to the appointments—the postdoc, the adviser, the line manager, and the Laboratory—should have a clear understanding of the nature of the appointment and expectations.
