Visiting Fellows Program
CIRES sponsors a prestigious Visiting Fellows program, inviting scientists to join the thriving community of research scientists in Boulder, Colorado. The CIRES Visiting Fellowships are intended to stimulate interdisciplinary research within the Institute through engagement with researchers on campus and in Boulder’s NOAA Laboratories. Sponsored by CIRES Fellows, Visiting Fellows work with CIRES researchers on a wide range of environmental science topics. The CIRES Visiting Fellows Program has attracted more than 250 scientists from around the world over the past 45 years; many have gone on to lasting careers in CIRES and NOAA. Two-year Visiting Fellowships are available for postdoctoral researchers, and terms of up to 12 months are available for senior scientists on leave or sabbatical.
