Dear NCAR Postdocs,

Would you like to get some teaching experience? ASP is prepared to 
support postdocs interested in going to a U.S. Minority Serving 
Institution (MSI) to teach and conduct research through the NCAR 
Diversity Fund.
Support includes salary, additional/duplicate living expenses, and 
travel costs. This could be for a semester, as Shanlin Wang just did at 
the University of Texas, El Paso, or for a short course.

NCAR has six MSI partner institutions that are part of a Memorandum of 
Agreement to facilitate collaborations.   Those six include:
- Howard University (Washington DC)
- Jackson State University (Jackson, Mississippi)
- Hampton University (Hampton, Virginia)
- North Carolina Agricultural & Technical University (Greensboro, North
- Texas Southern University (Houston, Texas)
- University of Texas, El Paso (El Paso, Texas)

We have already had postdocs go to Howard, Hampton, and the University 
of Texas, El Paso, so preference would be for Jackson State, North 
Carolina A&T, or Texas Southern University.  However, we can solicit 
funds to support you at ANY Minority Serving Institution (Sean Moore 
went to the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque).  If you are an ASP 
postdoc, we'll "stop the clock" on your fellowship while you teach and 
add that time to the end of your term.  If you are not an ASP postdoc, 
we'll have to negotiate the terms with your current supervisor.

This opportunity is open to ASP and non-ASP postdocs alike. If you are 
interested in pursuing this, and even if it would not be until fall 
2014, please let me know as soon as possible.  We'll need to work 
together to submit a proposal to the Diversity Committee  sometime in 
early September.
