In 2009, the NASA Living With a Star (LWS) program joined with the Cooperative Programs for the Advancement of Earth System Science (CPAESS, formerly UCAR Visiting Scientist Programs) to create the Jack Eddy Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.  The program matches early career PhDs with experienced scientists at U.S. research institutions. Hosting scientists mentor the postdoctorates during their two-year fellowships. The goal of the program is to train the next generation of researchers needed for the emerging field of Heliophysics.

UCAR postdoctoral positions are generally for two years with the second year based on continued program funding.  Successful applicants in this program work under the mentorship of host scientists in areas of mutual interest. Duties include conducting independent or collaborative research related to the goals of the program, documenting the results of the research in scientific publications and presenting the results at conferences as well as pursuing outside activities that advance professional growth, which may include contributing to educational programs, serving on committees, and attending workshops.
