A program designed to train the next generation of climate research leaders
The UCAR Cooperative Programs for the Advancement of Earth System Science (CPAESS) help prepare the next generation of weather and climate leaders and workforce by managing fellowship, visitor and workshop programs that meet emerging needs of the atmospheric and related sciences communities.
This fellowship program is designed to provide an independent research opportunity to recently graduated PhDs who want to pursue interests that align with the NOAA Climate Program Office. The program focuses on observing, understanding, modeling, and predicting the climate system on seasonal and longer timescales.
Experienced scientists at U.S. universities and research institutions host the appointed fellows, providing mentoring and a collaborative environment to carry out their research projects.
Advance contact with a potential host is required. For additional information, see How Hosting Institutions Apply. Interested host scientists are required to submit a brief letter of intent to host the fellow, a curriculum vita, a mentoring plan, and a list of current and pending research support. Hosts are expected to mentor the fellow and provide office, computing, laboratory, and field research needs for the fellow as appropriate.
Applicants must have a PhD degree in an area related to climate change research and have completed defense of the degree before starting the fellowship. Preference is given to new graduates who are seeking their first fellowship and who have held a PhD for no more than threeyears. We encourage applications from women and minorities and U.S. citizenship is not a requirement.
