The Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) of National Science Foundation (NSF) is inviting applications for the EAR Postdoctoral Fellowships. This annual program is open to recent recipients of doctoral degrees who intend to conduct two years research within the scope of EAR disciplinary programs. The deadline is Second Wednesday in September every year.
The program is intended to recognize beginning investigators of significant potential, and provide them with research experience, mentorship, and training that will establish them in leadership positions in the Earth Sciences community. Because the fellowships are offered only to postdoctoral scientists early in their career, doctoral advisors are encouraged to discuss the availability of EAR postdoctoral fellowships with their graduate students early in their doctoral programs. Fellowships are awards to individuals, not institutions, and are administered by the Fellows.
