This message is for individuals with recent Ph.D.s from Eastern Europe and
countries of the former USSR, who would like to apply for a fellowship to
do postdoctoral research in CANADA.

>A limited number of  NATO Science Fellowships are available to recent
>doctoral graduates who are citizens of one of the following countries:
>Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia,
>Georgia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova,
>Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Tajikistan, the former Yugoslav
>Republic of Mecedonia, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.
>These fellowships are aimed at encouraging international exchanges of
>postdoctoral fellows in the natural sciences and engineering and are:
>- valued at $29,000 per year, plus travel expenses for fellows (and their
>spouse and dependent children, if applicable);
>- awarded for two years subject to satisfactory progress and availability of
>- tenable at a Canadian university.
>1.  Candidates must have received a doctoral degree from a non-Canadian
>university in a field of research supported by NSERC and must not be
>permanent residents or citizens of Canada.
>2.  Obtained their doctorate after December 31, 1994 or before January 15,
>1998, with the exception of candidates who have left the workforce and
>active research for maternity and child-rearing purposes (These candidates
>may >have obtained their doctorate before January 1, 1995 and after
>December 31, >1990).
>3.  Candidates do not apply directly to NSERC.  They must be nominated by
