Visiting Research Scientist

In collaboration with NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton University solicits applications to its Visiting Research Scientist Program funded by the Cooperative Institute for Modeling the Earth System (CIMES).

The AOS Program and GFDL offer a stimulating and supportive environment with significant computational and intellectual resources in which to conduct collaborative or independent research. Independent researchers and more senior scientists who wish to visit GFDL for the purpose of collaboration, for sabbatical or short visits, will be considered for partial support. We seek applications in all areas of Earth System Science comprising the atmosphere, oceans, biosphere, cryosphere, ecosystems. The three research themes of CIMES are: 1) Earth System Modeling; 2) Seamless prediction across time and space scales; 3) Earth System Science: Analysis and Applications.

Further information about the AOS Program may be obtained from:, and about GFDL from Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact potential hosts at GFDL and Princeton University prior to application to discuss areas of possible research.

Complete applications, including a CV, copies of recent publications, three letters of recommendation, and a research proposal of approximately 5 pages including the project title, should be submitted by December 8th, 2023, 11:59pm EST, for full consideration. A goal of our department is providing equal opportunity, diversifying the community of scientists and making the Program more equitable and inclusive. With this in mind, candidates are welcome to describe how their experiences and approaches on diversity-related issues inform their professional work, such as in scholarship, teaching and advising as part of their research proposal.

Applicants must apply online at Advanced degree is required. We would like to broaden participation in earth system scientific research and therefore encourage applications from groups historically under-represented in science.

Princeton University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
