*2018 Jack Eddy Postdoctoral Fellowships*
*Application deadline: 12 January 2018*
The Cooperative Programs for the Advancement of Earth System Science
(CPAESS) announces the 2018 call for applications to the Jack Eddy
Postdoctoral Fellowships, sponsored by the NASA Living With a Star (LWS)
program. The fellowships are designed to train the next generation of
researchers in the emerging field of Heliophysics.
Heliophysics embraces all science aspects of the Sun-Solar System, and
includes many of the basic physical processes found in our solar system,
the laboratory, and throughout the universe. These processes generally
involve the interactions of ionized gases (plasmas) with gravitational and
electro-magnetic (both radiation and DC) fields, and with neutral matter.
The physical domain of interest ranges from deep inside the Sun to the
Earth’s upper atmosphere. Within this broad science
discipline, LWS is a program designed to develop the scientific
understanding required for the Nation to address effectively those aspects
of the Sun-Earth system that affect life and society.
Two major topics of focus for LWS are the science of space weather and of
the Sun-climate connection. Preference will be given to applicants whose
proposed research addresses one of these two foci; but any research program
relevant to LWS is considered.
Since the goal of this postdoctoral program is to train Sun-Earth system
researchers, preference is also given to research projects that cross the
traditional Heliophysics subdomains of the Sun, heliosphere, magnetosphere,
and ionosphere/upper atmosphere, as well as Sun-climate investigations.
Therefore, proposals addressing the LWS program that are interdisciplinary
In order to succeed at such cross-disciplinary research, the host mentoring
scientist plays a critical role. Consequently, applicants must select a
host scientist, who is different from the candidate’s PhD advisor
(preferably at a different institution), and coordinate a joint application
with the potential host scientist and institution.
Potential host scientists are required to submit a letter of intent,
curriculum vita, and mentoring plan as part of the selection process. Hosts
are expected to mentor the fellow, provide a reasonable office environment,
which may include a workstation, and any other unique research costs.
Applicants to this postdoctoral program are expected to have had a PhD for
no more than three years at the start of tenure. A UCAR steering committee
selects the fellows.
Jack Eddy fellows are UCAR employees and receive a fixed annual salary plus
UCAR’s benefits (health and dental insurance, paid time off, paid holidays,
TIAA retirement fund, and life insurance). A lump sum relocation allowance
and an allowance for travel during the appointment are provided. The
deadline for applications is 12 January 2018. Appointments will be
announced in March.
