NSF Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellowships (USA)

The Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellowships (AGS-PRF) are funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and support postdoctoral training of researchers in atmospheric and geospace sciences, with the following research focus areas: Atmospheric Chemistry (ATC), Climate and Large-Scale Dynamics (CLD), Paleoclimate (PC), and Physical and Dynamic Meteorology (PDM) in the Atmospheric Sciences, and Aeronomy (AER), Magnetospheric Physics (MAG), Solar Terrestrial (ST), and Space Weather Research (SWR) in the Geospace Sciences. Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents, and the research must be conducted at eligible US institutions. Applicants who are women, veterans, persons with disabilities, and underrepresented minorities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), or who have attended two-year colleges and minority-serving institutions for undergraduate or graduate school, or plan to conduct their Fellowship activities at one of these institutions (e.g. Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Tribal Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions, Alaska Native Serving Institutions, and Hawaiian Native and Pacific Islander Serving Institutions) are especially encouraged to apply.

The fellowship provides 100,000 USD/year over a period of 2 years (direct costs only). The funding may also be used to cover fringe benefits, including health insurance provided through either a group plan offered by the host organization, or an individual plan secured by the Fellow, dental and/or vision insurance, disability insurance, retirement, dependent care, and moving expenses. Applications are assessed on a rolling basis and applicants are encouraged to apply at any time.
