The Virginia Tech Presidential Postdoctoral Fellowship program has four tracks:
- Research Frontiers track
- Cybersecurity track
- Innovation track
- Science Policy and Research Ethics track
For the Research Frontiers, Cybersecurity, and Innovation tracks, proposals should indicate which track the mentor/postdoc is applying for. More than one track can be selected and applied for in a single proposal.
Applicants for the Science Policy and Research Ethics track will not require a faculty mentor, as a mentor at Virginia Tech has been identified. Thus, prospective postdocs applying to the Science Policy and Research Ethics track should submit the application themselves.
