Ocean Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellowships: The Division of Ocean Sciences (OCE) offers postdoctoral research fellowships (PRF) to provide opportunities for scientists early in their careers to work within and across traditional disciplinary lines, develop partnerships, and avail themselves of unique research resources, sites and facilities. The fellowship program is intended toprovide beginning investigators of significant potential with experiences that will establish them in positions of leadership in the scientific community. During tenure, Fellows affiliate with a host research organization(s) and conduct research on topics supported by OCE or other ocean-related NSF programs.Fellowships will include participation in a professional development program that emphasizes development of mentoring skills and that coordinates theinvolvementof Fellows in conferences and activities that are focused on increasing the engagement of underrepresented groups in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Principal Investigators must be U.S. citizens, nationals or permanent residents. Principal Investigators who are women, veterans, persons with disabilities, and underrepresented minorities in STEM, or who have attended community colleges and minority-serving institutions (e.g. Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Tribal Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions, AlaskaNativeServing Institutions,and Hawaiian Native and Pacific Islander Serving Institutions) are especially encouraged to apply.
