Intelligence Community Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program

Posted by on Tuesday, January 3, 2023 in Announcements .

The Intelligence Community (IC) Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program (IC Postdoc Program), administered by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE), was established in 2000 to support unclassified basic research in areas of interest to the IC. Funded primarily by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), the Program annually supports several Postdoctoral Fellows (Postdocs) from U.S. accredited colleges, universities, and U.S. Government laboratories across the country.

In collaboration with Research Advisors, Postdocs develop and submit technical research proposals for a wide range of topics that align with research opportunities proposed by the IC community. The research is conducted by the Postdocs while working in partnership with the Research Advisor and collaborating with an advisor from the Intelligence Community (IC Advisor). The opportunity is for a 2-year paid fellowship and US Citizenship is required for postdoc. Postdocs who will soon complete or have completed their Ph.D. within the last 5 years are invited to apply.
