We offer early career scientists an opportunity to conduct independent research, build their professional network, and connect with mentors across NCAR. 

Our flagship opportunity with the Advanced Study Program has been a part of NCAR for over 50 years and has sponsored more than 500 postdoctoral scientists. Many former fellows now occupy prominent positions in the university community or at NCAR. Atmospheric scientists, physicists, chemists, applied mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers, and specialists from related disciplines such as biology, geology, science education, economics, and geography can participate in ASP and contribute to innovation and creativity at NCAR.
