Last week, we began accepting applications for our inaugural WRF Postdoctoral Fellowship recruitment. Our goal is to select up to 10 exceptional postdoctoral researchers each year to work in STEM subject areas at Washington state’s top research institutions. I have attached the press release that is now on our website and social media pages. The ad will appear in a few key journals in the coming weeks.
We encourage you to share this program with your colleagues, students and friends. We hope, and expect, to attract the highest caliber applicants, and you can help us to achieve this. Applications will be accepted until Sunday, July 16, 2017.
