Job description

Jack Eddy Postdoctoral Fellowship
Application Deadline: January 17, 2020

UCAR is pleased to announce the 2020 call for applications for the Jack Eddy Postdoctoral Fellowship program sponsored by NASA’s Living with a Star (LWS) program. These fellowships are designed to train the next generation of researchers in the emerging field of heliophysics.

Heliophysics embraces all aspects of the Sun-Solar System, and includes many of the basic physical processes found in the laboratory, the solar system, and throughout the universe. These processes generally involve the interactions of ionized gases (plasmas) with gravitational and electro-magnetic fields, and with neutral matter. The physical domain of heliophysics ranges from deep inside the Sun to the Earth’s upper atmosphere.

Jack Eddy Fellowships provide a unique opportunity to go where few have gone before! Fellows are UCAR employees and receive a fixed annual salary, UCAR’s extensive benefits package, and allowances for relocation, travel and publications. Appointments will be announced by April 1, 2020.
