The Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences program provides a stimulating and supportive environment for career development of both early career and established researchers. Postdoctoral and visiting research scientists have access to collaborators from a pre-eminent government laboratory in NOAA-GFDL, as well as Princeton University research collaboration and training opportunities.
Postdoctoral and research scientists are recruited through two different mechanisms. Firstly, researchers are sought to work on specific projects funded through grants from a variety of different sources. Some of these positions involve collaboration with NOAA-GFDL, while others are advised primarily by Princeton faculty. Openings for these positions occur throughout the year; current announcements are listed at Employment Opportunities.
The second mechanism for recruitment of postdoctoral and research scientists is through an annual open search, for which applicants propose their own research project in the atmospheric and oceanic sciences. This program is a collaboration between the AOS Program at Princeton University and NOAA-GFDL, fostering independent research and/or collaboration with NOAA-GFDL/Princeton scientists on problems of mutual interest. Each scientist selected through this program is assigned a host with related research interests from within GFDL or AOS. Applications for this program are sought once per year. Early career scientists should apply to the postdoctoral research scientist program; more established scientists should apply to the visiting research scientists program (see below for full details).
The next application deadline is: December 8, 2023.
