Application Deadline: January 12, 2024

More information and application

This prestigious NOAA-sponsored program has an outstanding reputation for attracting the best and the brightest PhDs in the sciences and for training the future leaders in Climate and Global Change Science. In FY24, the C&GC Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is highlighting the need for applications across the full breadth of disciplines that contribute to Climate and Global Change Science.

Innovative research within and across disciplines that span the physical, social and integrated sciences spectrum are needed to understand, better predict, plan for, and manage the Earth System and its interactions in a changing climate, how communities experience and are impacted by these changes, and how society will pursue low-carbon adaptation pathways for a secure and sustainable future. NOAA’s Science Council emphasizes the importance of extramural investments in climate science spanning observations, analysis, and modeling and the integration of social, behavioral, and economic research across NOAA mission areas (NOAA Strategic Research Guidance Memorandum FY25). Each appointed fellow is hosted by a mentoring scientist at a U.S. university or research institution (including Federal laboratories) to work in an innovative climate-related research area of mutual interest to advance NOAA’s science mission. This mission is to understand and predict changes in climate, weather, oceans, and coasts) and illustrate relevance to the NOAA FY22-26 Strategic Plan. For example, our plan calls for Integrated Breakthrough Climate Research under the Build a Climate Ready Nation goal.

NOAA Climate and Global Change Postdoctoral Fellows focus on advancing Climate and Global Change Science. This includes science that furthers our understanding of physical earth system processes, climate impacts, and climate adaptation science. Examples include: observing, understanding, modeling, and predicting climate variability, change, and impacts on seasonal and longer time scales; documentation and analysis of past, current, or possible future climate variability and change; the study of the underlying Earth Systems processes, including physical-, chemical-, biological-, biogeochemical-, coupled human-systems processes, and/or their interactions. Coupled human-systems processes include climate adaptation science, and its methods and analyses that consider vulnerabilities, decision-making contexts, and/or policy pathways for a low-carbon, sustainable and equitable future society. Applications may be focused in one discipline, or be interdisciplinary, integrating across disciplines.
