Visits by NCAR & UCAR Staff to Universities
University/Federal Lab Partnerships
ASP Faculty Fellowship Program
NCAR Advanced Study Program
This program provides opportunities and resources for faculty employed at universities, along with up to two students, to work in residence at NCAR for 1–2 months and collaborate with NCAR scientists and engineers while taking advantage of our facilities and resources.
RAL Visitor Program
NCAR Research Applications Lab
RAL conducts directed research that contributes to the depth of fundamental scientific understanding, fosters the transfer of knowledge, and supports technology transfer efforts that expand the reach of atmospheric science. We encourage and support collaboration with colleagues within the U.S. and abroad, offering a variety of opportunities to visit RAL and work with our staff.
ACOM Scientific Visitor Program
NCAR Atmospheric Chemistry Observations & Modeling Lab
Opportunities are available for scientific visits from one day to several years. Travel expenses and other support may be available. Visitors must have an ACOM host who agrees to collaborate, schedule appointments or seminars, serve as mentor, or direct the research or project involved.

CGD Scientific Visitor Program
NCAR Climate & Global Dynamics Lab
CGD brings scientific visitors to NCAR's Mesa Lab each year for collaborative research. Graduate students and postdocs sponsored by their university are eligible to participate. Enhanced interaction with the university community allows us to play an important role in the education and training of the next generation of scientists.

CISL collaboration with university faculty, practitioners in high-performance computing, new researchers, and students is central to our mission to support the atmospheric and related sciences. We invite applications for professional collaborations on services, research, and education in areas related to this mission. As a national center we depend on a diverse and vigorous visitor program to engage the community and to contribute to our scientific mission. Scientific and professional visits play a key role in building collaborations among NCAR staff and other researchers, and are also an important component of training students and early career scientists.
DTC is a distributed facility where the NWP (numerical weather prediction) community can test and evaluate new models and techniques for use in research and operations. The program provides various kinds of support to principal investigators or graduate students under direction of a PI. Visitors work with the DTC on testing new forecasting and verification techniques, models, and model components.
MMM Visitor Program
NCAR Mesoscale & Microscale Meteorology Lab
MMM hosts a variety of national and international visitors for collaboration on topics relevant to our program. All visitors must be sponsored by an MMM staff member who agrees as host to collaborate, be a mentor, or schedule appointments or seminars. Partial or full support for travel or living expenses may be available. Collaborative visits in partnership with other NCAR programs are welcome.
EOL Visitor Program
NCAR Earth Observing Lab
Scientists and engineers visit from institutions all over the globe to collaborate on a variety of projects. Length of visit may range from several weeks to several months. Partial or full support for travel and living expenses may be available. Visitors must be sponsored by an EOL staff member and have a clear plan for the visit.
COSMIC Visitor Program
UCAR Constellation Observing System for Meteorology, Ionosphere & Climate Program
The COSMIC Program hosts U.S. and international visitors for collaboration on topics relevant to research and applications in radio occultation. Prospective visitors will either be invited or can request a visit, but all must have a COSMIC host who agrees to sponsor the collaboration and/or direct the research or project. Travel expenses and other support are usually provided by the visitor, but in some cases may be available through the COSMIC Program.

HAO Scientific Visitor Program
NCAR High Altitude Observatory
HAO research focuses on the study of the coupled Sun-Earth system (the solar interior and atmosphere, the heliosphere, and Earth's upper atmosphere, ionosphere, and magnetosphere) through theory, modeling, observations, and instrument development. The HAO visitor program supports postdoctoral and graduate student fellowships, as well as short-term visits ranging from a few days to a few months. All visitors must be sponsored by an HAO staff member who agrees to collaborate and serve as host or mentor.

UVisit: University Visits in Scientific Interaction & Teaching
UCAR University Relations Program
The UCAR President’s Office sponsors UVisit to enable scientists and engineers at NCAR and UCAR to spend significant time at U.S. universities for collaborative research, teaching, lectureships, workshops, and similar activities. Visit lengths may vary, ranging from a few days or weeks to a full semester or academic year. UVisits provide an opportunity for intellectual growth and professional development while enhancing collaborations between NCAR and UCAR and the university community.
Current opportunities through UCAR CPAESS
UCAR Cooperative Programs for the Advancement of Earth System Science (formerly Visiting Scientist Programs)
A broad range of professional positions is available in research and operational settings across the United States. Postdoctoral fellowships are also available. Listings are updated frequently on the website at the link below.
