    NOAA Climate and Global Change
    Postdoctoral Fellowships

*Application deadline: 8 January 2016*

The UCAR Visiting Scientist Programs announces the 2016 recruitment for 
NOAA Climate and Global Change Postdoctoral Fellowships (C&GC). The 
fellowship program has an outstanding reputation of attracting the best 
and the brightest PhDs in the sciences relevant to the NOAA Climate and 
Global Change Program. Appointed fellows are hosted by a mentoring 
scientist at U.S. universities and research institutions 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 and the study of the underlying physical, chemical, and 
biological processes.

Applications are due*8 January*. Appointments will be announced in March 

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 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 atwww.vsp.ucar.edu/cgc <http://www.vsp.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 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.

C&GC 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). Allowances are 
provided for relocation and scientific travel during the appointment. 
Some funds may be available to support the cost of publications.
