Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

The postdoctoral program provides an opportunity for Ph.D. scientists to pursue their research interests in atmospheric and related science. The program also invites postdoctoral physicists, chemists, applied mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers, and specialists from related disciplines such as biology, geology, science education, economics, and geography, to apply their training to research in the atmospheric sciences.

The primary goal of the program is to develop the careers of Ph.D. graduates. The Advanced Study Program also encourages independence and creativity while providing an environment in which fellows interact with and receive advice from experienced scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research.

Successful applicants currently receive a stipend of $64,570 in the first year, and $66,200 in the second year, plus a minimum of $3500 for annual scientific travel support. All fellows are eligible for life and health insurance. Each postdoc will be provided with a relocation package to help cover the cost of moving to Boulder, Colorado.

ASP hires approximately ten new postdoc fellows a year. Appointments are for a maximum of two years.
