please advertise - this is URGENT.
Dear colleagues,

I am writing to advertise a climate change postdoc fellowship opportunity with an urgent Nov 30th deadline - which might be relevant for your recent graduates, final year PhD students and researchers/postdocs in your groups or department. I am looking for interested potential postdocs to apply - in collaboration with me - in the next two weeks, for a NatureNet Science two year fellowship. The topics are listed at http://www.nature.org/science-in-action/naturenet-science-fellowship-application-guidelines.xml
and include Theme 1: Halting Climate change and Theme 2: Adapting to Climate change

If you are interested in this opportunity, please send me a CV and any relevant papers ASAP to establish a common interest, and so that I can provide support for you Application - and help determine a best match advisor at the Nature Conservancy for you - by the Nov 30th 2016 deadline.

As a climate modeler and oceanographer, I have very broad interests intersecting with this call such as: climate impacts and protection of aquatic ecosystems; evolutionary dynamics applied to aquatic ecosystems; global carbon sources/sinks; resilience to climate change (aquatic, land, atmosphere); extreme events; coastal habitat response to climate change and restoration, large scale climate signal emergence and predictability, oceanography and global carbon cycling; development of critical climate indices, geoengineering, integrated assessment modeling, global hydrological change and potential links with oceans. Potential co-advising from faculty in the Biology Dept, Medical School (environmental health), Engineering or the Wharton business school will be considered, depending on the topic chosen/of interest.

Please note the applied, practical nature of this climate science call, so this is principally for those of you who want to work on halting/adaptation to climate change at least for part of their work (though theoretical work should of course be weaved into this).

Please help distribute to anyone interested.

Thank you,

Relevant Grant details:
"The Conservancy expects fellow appointments to start between May 1 and September 1, 2017. Eligible individuals will have completed their doctorate within five years before the application close date of November 30th, 2016. Applicants who have not yet completed their doctorate must clearly indicate on the application the date the degree is expected. Each fellow will receive a non-negotiable annual salary of $50,000 plus benefits, with the postdoctoral position expected to run for two consecutive years. In addition to the stipend, each fellow receives an annual travel budget of approximately $5,000 and an annual research fund of approximately $20,000. Second-year renewal of the fellowship is contingent upon satisfactory progress and contribution to the collective program."
Irina’s personal note for applicants:  One goal for me is also to increase the presence of climate-related research in my University and bring new topics into the University. Hence, collaborators on your research project outside Penn - e.g., with your previous research group - on your proposed projects also welcome if you want them (though not necessary, of course).
