Post Doctoral Research Programs

Post Doctoral Research Programs

In order to stay on the leading edge of science and technology, a laboratory must have a constant influx of new ideas and fresh perspectives. The ARL brings in recent Ph.Ds or Sc.Ds to conduct high impact basic and applied research under the guidance of an ARL advisor through several postdoctoral research programs. The ARL has over 100 postdocs located at facilities in Adelphi, MD; Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD; White Sands, NM; and Orlando, FL.

There are several ARL-wide postdoctoral research programs available to both U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens. More information is available on the Program Specifics page.
