Postdoc fellowship for International students in US

Postby R Peace » Mon Jul 31, 2017 10:04 am

Hi, I am about to finish PhD in August 2017 from India. I am looking for the Postdoc fellowship funding source to pursue work in a university in US.
Prof is willing to have me in his laboratory provided I can secure a funding. My field is heat transfer, fluid and thermal science. Any suggestion is highly appreciated.

Maybe you could look into Fullbright fellowships for scholars from your country--search online for the website. You should also look for postdoc openings advertised in your field of study, this site has job listings and so do others such as New Scientist etc.

Finally it might help to email Professors working in those fields. You need to spend some time going through their websites, papers etc. Send a brief and concise email with your C.V. attached. Avoid common grammatical mistakes such as those in your message, that can put some people off.
