Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in Biology (PRFB) Solicitation Update

The Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) awards Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in Biology (PRFB) to recent recipients of the doctoral degree for research and training in selected areas supported by BIO and with special goals for human resource development in biology.  The fellowships encourage independence at an early stage of the research career to permit Fellows to pursue their research and training goals in the most appropriate research locations regardless of the availability of funding for the Fellows at that site.

The PRFB solicitation is currently being revised, with the expected release of a new solicitation in late summer. Please check the PRFB webpage ( for updates and contact the program at if you have any questions.
