I applied for a prestigious US national laboratory post-doctoral fellowship with a potential mentor. Unfortunately, I got rejected. However, I am very much interested in working in this mentor’s group. Note that I am not sure if he is aware of my rejection. I need advice on the following two queries:

  1. Should I send another email expressing my interest in joining this mentor’s group (i.e., on funding acquired by him)? If so, what would be the most polite way to ask him?
  2. Or should I wait for the next fellowship call and apply then with the same mentor?
