NSF – Earth Sciences Postdoctoral Fellowships (EAR-PF)

Date Due: 10/25/17

Amount: $87,000 per year, including $62,000 salary, $25,000 costs

Summary: The EAR Postdoctoral Fellows are expected to propose a strong, coherent research program in or across any area of Earth Science within the scope of the Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) programs. The Division of Earth Sciences supports proposals for research geared toward improving the understanding of the structure, composition, and evolution of the Earth, the life it supports, and the processes that govern the formation and behavior of Earth materials. The theme of this solicitation is “issues relating to scale.” Earth Science research addresses processes that operate at different scales (e.g. spatial, temporal, numerical), but many communities are just now starting to study processes across different scales, or how processes operating at one scale translate to another. In addition, fellowship applicants are expected to include a coherent program of professional development activities as part of their proposal.

Keywords: career, student, education, geography, postdoc
