Visiting Faculty Exchange Fellowships

2018 Faculty Exchange Fellows

2018 CICS Summer Faculty Exchange Fellows: (L to R) Randye Rutberg and Monika Sikand

Princeton University’s Cooperative Institute for Modeling the Earth System (CIMES), a collaboration between the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (AOS) Program of Princeton University and NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), invites applications for the CIMES Visiting Faculty Exchange fellowship program, to support collaborative visits to Princeton of up to 3 months from faculty based at US academic institutions. These fellowships are intended to broaden participation in climate and earth-system science, and individuals with experience working with students from groups under-represented in science are therefore particularly encouraged to apply. CIMES faculty fellows, appointed at the rank of Visiting Fellow or other visiting rank commensurate with education and experience, will work with host scientists at AOS and/or GFDL, a world-leading center of earth system modeling, research and prediction, with the aim of establishing continuing research and educational links between AOS/GFDL scientists and the fellow’s home institution.  Faculty conducting research in areas relevant to CIMES, including physics, dynamics and chemistry of the atmosphere, ocean and climate, earth system science, and societal impacts, are encouraged to apply. CIMES visiting faculty fellows will work on a scientific problem of mutual interest in collaboration with their AOS/GFDL host, and benefit from resources and activities at GFDL and AOS.  

Fellows will receive reimbursement for roundtrip travel from their home institution and housing costs incurred during their visit, and a stipend or partial summer salary if required.

Applicants should submit a 2-page proposal for activities to be conducted during the fellowship, and are encouraged to identify one or more AOS faculty or GFDL scientists as potential hosts prior to application. Complete applications, including proposal (with budget if requesting summer salary/stipend), curriculum vitae, cover letter, and names including contact information for two reference letter writers, must be submitted to by January 15, 2019. Cover letters should include an explanation of the applicant’s contributions to increasing diversity in science, and describe how this fellowship will enable the applicant’s research and education goals, benefit interactions between their home institution and GFDL and Princeton University’s AOS program, and lead to broader participation in climate and/or earth-system science.
