University Corporation for Atmospheric Research – EUA
Application deadline: 9 January 2015
The UCAR Visiting Scientist Programs announces the 2015 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 biological processes.
Applications are due 9 January. Appointments will be announced in March 2015.
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 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.
