The Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center is hiring an Actionable Science Postdoctoral Fellow

The University of Washington College of the Environment invites applications for a Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC) Actionable Science Postdoctoral Fellow. The NW CASC is one of eight regional Climate Adaptation Science Centers dedicated to delivering science that helps wildlife, water, land and people adapt to a changing climate. Research supported by the NW CASC provides objective scientific information and strategies that Northwest managers of land, water, wildlife and cultural resources can use to anticipate, monitor and adapt to climate change. This position requires a PhD in an area of natural or social science related to climate change and demonstrated experience working at the interface of climate science and decision-making. This is a full-time, 12-month term appointment with potential for extension. Salary will be dependent on qualifications and experience. Preference will be given to applications received by September 5, 2018. For a complete job description and application requirements, please visit: https://apply.interfolio.com/52841

Dear Colleague Letter: Signals in the Soil (SitS)

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate for Engineering (ENG) in collaboration with its Directorates for Biological Sciences (BIO), Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE), and Geosciences (GEO), aims to encourage convergent research that transforms existing capabilities in understanding dynamic near-surface processes through advances in sensor systems and dynamic models. The goal of this Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) is to encourage submission of Early-Concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) proposals for early-stage, high-risk, high-reward research on technologies, models, and methods to better understand dynamic soil processes, including interactions of the macro- and microbiomes with soil nutrients, the rhizosphere, and various abiotic and biotic processes within the soil. In addition, for proposals that include topics relevant to both this DCL and the NSF “Rules of Life” Big Idea, submissions of Research Advanced by Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering (RAISE) proposals are encouraged. Researchers who are interested in submitting a SitS EAGER or RAISE proposal must first submit a SitS Research Concept Outline. Selected submitters of these Outlines will be invited to submit full EAGER or RAISE proposals for funding consideration.

Questions about this DCL should be directed to: SitSquestions@nsf.gov.
Research Concept Outlines should be no longer than 2 pages and must be submitted by April 13, 2018
For more information and to apply.

Dear Colleague Letter: Stimulating Research Related to Navigating the New Arctic (NNA), One of NSF’s 10 Big Ideas

Submit proposals by May 1, 2018, to be considered for FY 2018 funding.
This Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) invites proposals in FY 2018 that will advance NNA research through convergent approaches to emerging scientific, engineering, societal, and education challenges, and builds upon the NNA awards resulting from the FY 2017 DCL on Growing Convergence Research at NSF. A systems-based approach is strongly encouraged, including research that both contributes to, and leverages, large data sets from enhanced observational technology and networks. Knowledge co-production with local and indigenous communities, advancing public participation in research, and international partnerships are also strongly encouraged as possible means to achieve NNA objectives.

Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) – New Frontiers Data Analysis Program

Closing Deadline: 23 Aug 2018
The objective of the New Frontiers Data Analysis Program (NFDAP) is to enhance the scientific return from New Frontiers missions by broadening scientific participation in the analysis and interpretation of data returned by these missions. Other mission and non-mission data sets may be used to supplement these data in a supporting role, but all proposals require the use of data from at least one New Frontiers mission.
This program solicits research proposals to conduct scientific investigations utilizing or enhancing the utilization of data obtained by the New Frontiers missions. For the purposes of this solicitation, “data” is understood to include both uncalibrated and calibrated data as well as higher-order data products produced from the mission data.

ROSES 2018: Earth Science Applications: Water Resources

Closing Deadline: 17 Aug 2018
Within the NASA Earth Science Division, the Applied Sciences Program solicits proposals that develop and demonstrate the integration of NASA Earth science data and models into water resource management applications and decision support tools that can be sustained by operational partners or stakeholders. Remote sensing data, in combination with hydrologic models, can provide important information to assist water resource managers working with a wide range of partners and stakeholders. In order to make the best decisions possible and develop strategies that enhance the security and sustainability of water supplies, water resource managers and their stakeholders need timely information on water quality, supply, and demand.

ROSES 2018: Atmospheric Composition: Modeling and Analysis

Closing Deadline: 24 Aug 2018
coupled effects of changes in ozone depleting substance emissions and climate variations on ozone recovery and future atmospheric composition; enabling more accurate climate forecasts based on improved understanding of the forcings of global environmental change; and developing and refining better air quality forecasts that take into account the feedbacks between regional air quality and global climate variations. Achievements in these areas via advances in observations, data assimilation, and modeling enable improved descriptions and predictions of how changes in atmospheric composition affect ozone, climate, and air quality.

ROSES 2018: Physical Oceanography

Closing Deadline: 29 Jun 2018
The primary scientific thrust for physical oceanography at NASA is toward understanding the ocean’s role in climate variability and its prediction. Since the general ocean circulation plays a critical role in the global heat balance and materially changes atmospheric properties through air-sea exchange, understanding and modeling the state of the coupled ocean-atmosphere system are fundamental to climate studies. NASA utilizes the unique vantage point of space to enable rapid collection of global ocean data sets and intends to contribute significantly to the World Climate Research Program’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR) Program (http://www.usclivar.org).
