We are proud to announce the merger of the JOSS and VSP Programs as of February 14, 2016. Together we look forward to providing continued exceptional support and services to all of our partners and communities. Work is underway for a merged website.
Deadline: 6 January 2017
The UCAR Visiting Scientist Programs (VSP) conducts the annual recruitment for the NOAA Climate and Global Change Postdoctoral Fellowship Program (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. VSP manages this NOAA-sponsored program, in which 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.
The objective of the program is to help create the next generation of researchers needed for climate studies. It endeavors to attract recent PhDs in sciences that address studies of relevance to the NOAA Climate Program Office. Desired research areas 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.
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, in the absence of 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 may be found at Selection Criteria & Program Policies.
