    A Program for Postdoctoral Support in the Atmospheric Sciences

The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is a research 
institution located in Boulder, Colorado, operated by the nonprofit 
University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) under sponsorship 
of the National Science Foundation (NSF). Through its Advanced Study 
Program (ASP), NCAR offers a continuing program of postdoctoral study in 
the atmospheric and related sciences.

The Advanced Study Program is now accepting applications for the 
postdoctoral fellowship program. Please read the instructions below for 
how to apply.

Application deadline (all materials including reference letters) is 
Thursday, January 9, 2014



The postdoctoral program provides an opportunity for Ph.D. scientists to 
pursue their research interests in atmospheric and related science. The 
program also invites postdoctoral physicists, chemists, applied 
mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers, and specialists from 
related disciplines such as biology, geology, science education, 
economics, and geography, to apply their training to research in the 
atmospheric sciences.

The primary goal of the program is to develop the careers of Ph.D. 
graduates. The ASP also encourages independence and creativity while 
providing an environment in which fellows collaborate with and are 
mentored by experienced scientists at NCAR.

    Research Opportunities

The postdoctoral fellowships provide successful applicants with 
considerable freedom to pursue their own research interests. Most 
fellows develop research projects in collaboration with NCAR scientists, 
but all are expected to choose their own research directions and are 
responsible for the design and conduct of their own projects.

Research at NCAR includes studies of atmospheric dynamics (on all 
scales), climate science, cloud physics, atmospheric chemistry and 
radiation, turbulence, upper-atmosphere physics (including ionosphere 
studies and aeronomy), solar physics, oceanography, and societal impacts 
related to these scientific areas. There are related programs in 
atmospheric technology and in computational science and applied 
mathematics. The NCAR program also includes studies of the interaction 
of the atmosphere with the oceans, the cryosphere, the earth's surface, 
and human society. Scientists that are interested in applying their 
knowledge of biology, ecology, geology, economics, and political science 
to atmospheric issues are encouraged to apply. An extensive discussion 
of NCAR science is featured in the NCAR Annual Scientific Report, which 
can be found athttp://www.nar.ucar.edu/and in the NCAR Strategic Plan 
athttps://ncar.ucar.edu/documents/strategic-plan/2009. Additional 
information on the NCAR scientific program can be found 
<https://ncar.ucar.edu/labs-observatory/>. Each fellow in ASP is 
encouraged to pursue research objectives which take maximum advantage of 
the opportunities available at NCAR. Fellows have direct access to the 
NCAR computers and the library, and can obtain appropriate access to 
other research facilities by mutual agreement with the appropriate 
project or facility. Special needs (e.g., for laboratory facilities) can 
often be met but should be arranged in advance through the appropriate 
project or facility at NCAR. A description of NCAR facilities can be 
accessed athttps://ncar.ucar.edu/community-resources.

Fellows are expected to participate in ASP activities including 
seminars, lecture series, and research reviews and in community service 
activities during their term. Fellows are also expected to be an active 
member of one of the three standing ASP committees listed
