NOAA Climate and Global Change
Application deadline: 8 January 2016
The UCAR Visiting Scientist Programs announces the 2016 recruitment for
NOAA Climate and Global Change Postdoctoral Fellowships (C&GC). The
fellowship program has an outstanding reputation of attracting the best
and the brightest PhDs in the sciences relevant to the NOAA Climate and
Global Change Program. Appointed fellows are hosted by a mentoring
scientist at U.S. universities and research institutions to work in an
area of mutual interest.
NOAA Climate and Global Change Postdoctoral Fellows focus on observing
understanding, modeling, and predicting climate variability and change
on seasonal and longer time scales. This includes the documentation and
analysis of past, current, or possible future climate variability and
change and the study of the underlying physical, chemical, and
Applications are due 8 January. Appointments will be announced in March
Preference is given to those who have held a PhD for no more than three
years. Awardees must change institutions and identify a host, who must
be at a U.S. institution. A clearly articulated research proposal is
particularly important. A steering committee, broadly representing the
areas covered by this program, selects the fellows. The selection
criteria used by the steering committee in making the awards is
available at http://www.vsp.ucar.edu/cgc.
Advanced contact with a potential host is required. Interested host
scientists are required to submit a brief letter of intent to host the
fellow and a curriculum vita. Hosts are expected to mentor the fellow
and cover office, computing, laboratory, and field research needs of the
fellow as appropriate.
C&GC fellows are UCAR employees and receive a fixed annual salary plus
UCAR’s benefits (health and dental insurance, paid time off, paid
holidays, TIAA/CREF retirement fund, and life insurance). Allowances are
provided for relocation and scientific travel during the appointment.
Some funds may be available to support the cost of publications.
