The IAI/NCAR Postdoctoral Fellowship Program
NCAR and the Inter American Institute for Global Change Research (IAI) are pleased to announce a new program for postdoctoral support in atmospheric and related sciences. The IAI is an intergovernmental organization supported by 19 countries in the Americas dedicated to pursuing the principles of scientific excellence, international cooperation, and the open exchange of scientific information to increase the understanding of global change phenomena and their socioeconomic implications.

Eligibility for the new fellowship is limited to natives of IAI member countries who are within five years of receiving a doctoral degree from an institution in an IAI member country. Fellowships must be carried out in residence at NCAR. Candidates should be fluent in verbal and written English. Initial appointments will begin in the second half of 2006. Please apply electronically at the Web site below.

Application deadline: 5 January 2006
Contact: Paula Fisher, NCAR/ASP, 303-497-1328

Apply now for 2006-07 AMS/UCAR Congressional Science Fellowship
Are you fascinated by what goes on in Washington, D.C.? Are you content with how Congress and the President make science policy? Would you like to become involved--to make a difference? Through the AMS/UCAR Congressional Science Fellowship, scientists interested in public policy can spend a year working for a member of Congress or a congressional committee. Each fellow is free to choose from a wide variety of positions within Congress, spending the year on Capitol Hill with more than 30 fellows from other professional societies. A stipend of $50,000 is provided, plus up to $10,000 for moving, travel, and other expenses. The 2006-07 fellowships run from 1 September 2006 to 31 August 2007.

For more details or to apply for the fellowship, please see the AMS Web site below.

Coming in February: third IMAGe modeling workshop
NCAR's Institute for Mathematics Applied to Geosciences is holding a workshop entitled "Stochastic and Statistical Parameterization of Unresolved Features in the Atmosphere and Upper Ocean" at the Mesa Laboratory in Boulder from 27 February to 3 March. The meeting is the third in a series organized as part of IMAGe's 2006 Theme of the Year, Emerging Mathematical Strategies for Multi-Scale and Stochastic Modeling of the Atmosphere and Climate. Each interdisciplinary workshop includes a tutorial research/expository component for the first two days and a contemporary research component for the last three days.

Funding is available to support attendance with special emphasis given to graduate students and other young researchers. Those who are not working directly on the workshop topics yet have an interest in the program are also encouraged to apply, as are members of underrepresented groups.

Workshop registration deadline: 25 February 2006
Financial support application deadline: 23 January 2006
