The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR), Visiting Scientist Programs, helps 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.(link is external) The program focuses on observing, understanding, modeling, and predicting the climate system on seasonal and longer time scales. 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.

Advanced contact with a potential host is required. Interested host scientists are required to submit a brief letter of intent to host the fellow, a curriculum vita, 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 of the fellow as appropriate.
