The Director of National Intelligence (DNI) and the Central Intelligence Agency?s Office of the Chief Scientist announce the Fiscal Year 2009 competition for the IC Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program.
The Program serves the IC and research communities by engaging experts in the solution
of problems critical to IC goals and missions-particular research topics.
Applicants must be associated with a U. S. Domestic, non-profit/not-for-profit organization.
Through this competition, OCS expects to make awards in specific research topics.
All submissions undergo a rigorous competitive evaluation and are selected on merit, relevance to the Intelligence Community (IC) mission, and available funding.
Depending on the quantity and quality of proposals received, OCS may not make award(s) under a particular research topic.
If more funds become available, additional awards may be made at a later date based on initial evaluation results.
Typically each award will be for a period of two years (funded incrementally).
A third year may be awarded based on continued relevance of the topic, as well as progress and participation of the recipient.
Grants or procurement contracts will be awarded as a result of this BAA.
