NOAA Climate and Global Change
Postdoctoral Fellowships

Application deadline: 6 April 2018


The Cooperative Programs for the Advancement of Earth System Science
(CPAESS) announces the 2018 recruitment for NOAA Climate and Global
Change Postdoctoral Fellowships (C&GC). The fellowship program has an
outstanding reputation for attracting the best and the brightest PhDs in
the sciences relevant to the NOAA Climate and Global Change Program.
Each appointed fellow is hosted by a mentoring scientist at a U.S.
university or research institution 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 as well as the study of the underlying physical, chemical, and
biological processes.

Applications are due 6 April.

Preference is given to new graduates who are seeking their first
fellowship and who have held a PhD for no more than three years.
Awardees must change institutions (unless there are compelling
circumstances) 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
<cpaess.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, a curriculum vita, and a mentoring plan. Hosts are expected to
mentor the fellow and provide 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, vision and dental insurance, paid time off,
paid holidays, TIAA retirement fund, and life insurance). A lump sum
relocation allowance and an allowance for travel and publications during
the appointment are provided.
