Climate & Space PhD, Dr. Annareli Morales, has been awarded an Advance Study Program Postdoctoral Fellowship at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, CO. The two-year fellowship provides an opportunity to conduct independent research at NCAR, and fellows are part of a collaborative cohort mentored by leading NCAR scientists and engineers. Candidates must have a PhD or ScD degree granted in an area related to NCAR science.

Dr. Morales presented her thesis “Exploring the Microphysical and Environmental Controls on Orographic Precipitation in an Atmospheric River Environment” earlier this month. She will begin the fellowship in September.

From the NCAR site:

“ASP postdoctoral fellowships provide successful applicants with considerable freedom to pursue their own research interests. Most fellows develop research projects in collaboration with NCAR scientists and engineers, but all are expected to choose their own research directions and are responsible for the design and conduct of their projects.” 

“NCAR is a federally funded research and development center devoted to service, research and education in the atmospheric and related sciences. NCAR’s mission is to understand the behavior of the atmosphere and related Earth and geospace systems; to support, enhance, and extend the capabilities of the university community and the broader scientific community, nationally and internationally; to foster the transfer of knowledge and technology for the betterment of life on Earth. The National Science Foundation is NCAR’s main sponsor, with significant additional support provided by other U.S. government agencies, other national governments and the private sector. Through its Advanced Study Program (ASP), NCAR offers a continuing program of postdoctoral study in the atmospheric and related sciences.”

Congratulations, Dr. Morales!
