CIRES sponsors a prestigious Visiting Fellows program, inviting scientists to join the thriving community of researchers in Boulder, Colorado. CIRES Visiting Fellowships are intended to stimulate interdisciplinary research across the institute through engagement with CIRES researchers on campus and in Boulder’s NOAA Laboratories. Sponsored by CIRES Fellows, Visiting Fellows work with CIRES researchers on a wide range of environmental science topics. The CIRES Visiting Fellows Program has attracted more than 325 scientists from around the world over the past 50 years; many have gone on to lasting careers in CIRES and NOAA. We encourage applications from members of groups under-represented in the environmental sciences and related disciplines.
Two-year Visiting Fellowships are available for postdoctoral researchers ($62,000 per year), and terms of up to 12 months (living expenses) for senior scientists on leave or sabbatical.
Applicants should contact possible CIRES Fellow collaborators well in advance of submitting an application. Successful proposals are typically designed in collaboration with your potential host at CIRES. Without the support of a current CIRES Fellow, your application is unlikely to succeed.
The 2018 competition opened October 23, 2017 and the application deadline is January 9, 2018.
