In anticipation of a growing need for personnel by the international programs in which it cooperates, the National Academy of Sciences—National Research Council is compiling a register of American scientists and other specialists who are interested in possibilities of assignments abroad for periods ranging from a few weeks to two years. Such assignments become available at irregular intervals throughout the year, and they vary greatly with respect to location, duration, stipends, and responsibilities. Some programs sponsored by private foundations require scientists of high competence and reputation for short‐term lecturing and consulting in one or more countries. Several government‐sponsored projects call for specialists who are available for two‐year periods, have had previous experience in certain geographical areas, and are fluent in Spanish or French. Under the exchange programs authorized by the Fulbright and Smith‐Mundt Acts, young scientists as well as established science educators are welcomed as lecturers by many colleges and universities in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
