The Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) at the National Science Foundation awards 10 postdoctoral fellowships for up to 2 years to scientists in early stages of their careers. This award is intended to carry out an integrated program of independent research and education relating to the structure, composition, and evolution of the earth's biosphere, atmosphere, and hydrosphere. The program supports researchers with fellowships that can be taken to the institution or national facility of their choice, including facilities abroad.


Applicants must be graduate students or, at the deadline time, have served in a position that requires a doctoral degree for no more than 18 full-time-equivalent months since earning the degree. Research projects should seek to address scientific questions within the purview of the EAR program.


Fellows receive an annual stipend of $62,000 plus an allowance of $25,000 per year.
