NOAA Climate & Global Change Postdoctoral Fellowships

Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

Description:
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.

The program pairs recently graduated PhDs with host scientists at U.S. institutions to work in an area of mutual interest. The program aims to create the next generation of climate researchers. It endeavors to attract recent PhDs with research interests in areas relevant to the NOAA climate science and services program (www.climate.noaa.gov or www.globalchange.gov).

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 US 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 are available at www.vsp.ucar.edu/cgc.Advanced contact with a potential host is strongly encouraged. 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.

PACE 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). A relocation allowance and an allowance for travel during the appointment are provided.

Candidates must apply directly through the NOAA C&GC website.

U.S. citizenship is not required to participate in this program, but the selected postdoctoral fellows must be hosted at a U.S. research institution. Appointed scientists are employees of UCAR. The two-year fellowships include a fixed annual salary and benefits: health & dental insurance, paid time off, paid holidays, mandatory participation in TIAA/CREF retirement fund, and life insurance. A relocation allowance is provided as well as an allowance for travel to scientific conferences and other support costs.

The NOAA Climate Program Office sponsors this program. The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research is an EO/AAE who values and encourages values and encourages diversity in the workplace.
