URGENT: Climate related fellowship at University of Pennsylvania
Nov 30th deadline

Dear colleagues,

I am writing to advertise a climate change postdoc fellowship opportunity with 
an urgent Nov 30th deadline - which might be relevant for your recent 
graduates, final year PhD students and researchers/postdocs in your groups or 
department. I am looking for interested potential postdocs to apply - in 
collaboration with me - in the next two weeks, for a NatureNet Science two year 
fellowship.

The topics are listed at 
<http://www.nature.org/science-in-action/naturenet-science-fellowship-application-guidelines.xml>

If you are interested in this opportunity, please send me a CV and any relevant 
papers ASAP to establish a common interest, and so that I can provide support 
for your Application - and help determine a best match advisor at the Nature 
Conservancy for you - by the Nov 30th 2016 deadline.
As a climate modeler and oceanographer, I have very broad interests 
intersecting with this call such as: climate impacts and protection of aquatic 
ecosystems; evolutionary dynamics applied to aquatic ecosystems; global carbon 
sources/sinks; resilience to climate change (aquatic, land, atmosphere); 
extreme events; coastal habitat response to climate change and restoration, 
large scale climate signal emergence and predictability, oceanography and 
global carbon cycling; development of critical climate indices, geoengineering, 
integrated assessment modeling, global hydrological change and potential links 
with oceans. Potential co-advising from faculty in the Biology Dept, Medical 
School (environmental health), Engineering or the Wharton business school will 
be considered, depending on the topic chosen/of interest.

Please note the applied, practical nature of this climate science call, so this 
is principally for those of you who want to work on halting/adaptation to 
climate change at least for part of their work (though theoretical work should 
of course be weaved into this). Please help distribute to anyone interested.

Relevant Grant details:

"The Conservancy expects fellow appointments to start between May 1 and 
September 1, 2017. Eligible individuals will have completed their doctorate 
within five years before the application close date of November 30th, 2016. 
Applicants who have not yet completed their doctorate must clearly indicate on 
the application the date the degree is expected. Each fellow will receive a 
non-negotiable annual salary of $50,000 plus benefits, with the postdoctoral 
position expected to run for two consecutive years. In addition to the stipend, 
each fellow receives an annual travel budget of approximately $5,000 and an 
annual research fund of approximately $20,000. Second-year renewal of the 
fellowship is contingent upon satisfactory progress and contribution to the 
collective program."

Irina’s personal note for applicants: One goal for me is also to increase the 
presence of climate-related research in my University and bring new topics into 
the University. Hence, collaborators on your research project outside Penn - 
e.g., with your previous research group - on your proposed projects also 
welcome if you want them (though not necessary, of course).
