CIRES Visiting Fellows Program
CIRES sponsors a prestigious Visiting Fellows Program, inviting scientists to join the thriving community of research scientists 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. 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 45 years; many have gone on to lasting careers in CIRES and NOAA.
Two-year Visiting Fellowships are available for postdoctoral researchers ($62,000 per year); terms between 3 months and 12 months are available for senior scientists on leave or sabbatical.
Visit the CIRES website for more information about the Institute, and go to the Visiting Fellows page to apply. The deadline for applications is 11:59pm, January 9, 2017.
AAAS Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellows program
The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) is seeking applicants for its Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellows program. The program places science, engineering, and mathematics students and postdocs at media organizations nationwide and provides a great opportunity for students to sharpen their abilities to communicate complex scientific issues to the public. Fellows have worked with the Los Angeles Times, WIRED, National Geographical Society and National Public Radio as reporters, editors, production assistants, and researches. Interested students should visit AAAS for more information. The deadline to apply is January 15.
Union of Concerned Scientists, Center for Science and Democracy
Kendall Fellowship: Voting Rights
Are you a scientist who wants to explore the intersection of voting rights and public policy? Do you think research can help remove barriers to enfranchisement? The Center for Science and Democracy at the Union of Concerned Scientists is inviting applications from qualified social scientists and related experts for a Voting Rights Fellowship to begin September 2017. The fellowship is part of the UCS Kendall fellows program. Successful applicants will develop a proposal for a two-year project to identify gaps in research related to voting rights, assess the impact of voter disenfranchisement on our ability to meet science-based policy challenges, and feed that analysis into efforts to increase voter participation in U.S. elections. More information.
