How Hosting Institutions Apply

Due to funding uncertainty,
the 2018 recruitment process is delayed.


Deadline: CLOSED

Responsibilities of Host:

Hosts are expected to mentor the fellow as well as provide office space, a computer workstation, and any other unique research costs associated with this fellowship. UCAR sets aside some funds to help off set the high cost of publishing scientific results, but we request that hosts also help the postdoctoral fellows with some of these costs.

Please prepare your application in one (1) PDF document, in the order listed below:

  • One or two-page letter of intent to host and mentor a specific fellow or describing the type of background preferred.
  • Curriculum vitae, including publications (two-page limit).
  • A list of current and pending research support.

Potential host mentors should send required materials to:

Note: If you are writing a hosting letter for more than one postdoc, we expect that you will inform your candidates that you are proposing to host more than one C&GC postdoctoral fellow. The steering committee strives to spread appointments across institutions and does not place more than one fellow with the same host.

Database of Hosts

CPAESS operates an online, searchable database of NOAA C&GC hosts. Candidates for fellowships use this to research appropriate institutions. To be included in the Searchable Database for potential hosts, please register as a host.

NOTE: Even though a host is included in the host database, a potential host needs to submit their letter of intent to host the applicant, their abbreviated CV and their list of current research support.
