The Stetten Memorial Fellowship seeks to encourage historical research and writing about biomedical sciences and technology by providing a postdoctoral student, at the beginning stages of the professional career, with a year’s research experience in residence at the Office of NIH History. The Stetten Fellow will have access to the resources of the Office of NIH History, the collections of the Stetten Museum, the National Library of Medicine, and to other repositories in the Washington, DC area. The Fellow will conduct research under the supervision of the Director of the Office of NIH History and also be guided by a scientific mentor. The Fellow will be expected to participate in historical activities on campus, including presentation of one or more seminars and lectures.

The deadline for applications for the DeWitt Stetten, Jr., Memorial Fellowship in the History of Biomedical Sciences and Technology is close of business on December 15, 2003. Most of the application process may be completed online. Guidance about the application and information about the fellowship may be found at
