At any time between March 11 and April 15, students may be contacted for a phone or in-person interview or students may receive an offer of a position. While we encourage students to investigate what type of research is currently going on at NIST, students are not required nor encouraged to contact potential mentors. Students should be aware that actively soliciting more than two offers from different mentors will result in disqualification from the program.
