This opportunity is open to all United States citizens and legal permanent residents with a work authorization. Applicants are responsible for obtaining the necessary work authorization.

Terms of Appointment: The Fellow will be offered an initial 24-month, full-time appointment, which may be extended by mutual agreement.
