EAR Postdoctoral Fellowships: The Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) awards Postdoctoral Fellowships to recent recipients of doctoral degrees toconduct an integrated program of independent research and professional development.Fellowship proposals must address scientific questions within the scope of EAR disciplinary programsand must align with the overall theme for the postdoctoral program. The program supports researchers for a period of up to two years with fellowships that can be taken to the institution of their choice (includinginstitutions abroad). The program is intended to recognize beginning investigators of significant potential, and provide them with research experience, mentorship, and training that will establish them in leadership positions in the Earth Sciences community. Because the fellowships are offered only to postdoctoral scientists early in their career, doctoral advisors are encouraged to discuss the availability of EAR postdoctoral fellowships with their graduate students early in their doctoral programs. Fellowships are awards to individuals, not institutions, and are administered by the Fellows.
