The National Library of Medicine is seeking host sites for the 2019-2020 second year for its current group of NLM Associate Fellows. The deadline for letters of interest is April 1, 2019. Information on hosting NLM Associate Fellows is available on the NLM web site. Host sites are health sciences libraries which can offer a strong opportunity for an early-career health sciences librarian, with exposure to the full range of work and experiences of the institution. NLM is seeking host sites that are willing to fund the stipend and health insurance, while NLM provides funding for professional development, interview, colloquium attendance, and relocation.
