The Department of Soil, Water, and Climate at the University of Minnesota (U of M) seeks a faculty member with strong expertise in climate science and a passion for community engagement and for communicating climate information to agricultural producers, natural resource managers, other industry stakeholders, the broader public, and policymakers.

Review of applications will begin September 14, 2018 and continue until the position is filled.

The mission of the NRC Research Associateship Programs (RAP) is to promote excellence in scientific and technological research conducted by the U. S. government through the administration of programs offering graduate, postdoctoral, and senior level research opportunities at sponsoring federal laboratories and affiliated institutions.

In these programs, prospective applicants select a research project or projects from among the large group of opportunities listed on this website. Prior to completing an application, prospective applicants should contact the proposed Research Adviser to assure that funding will be available if their application is recommended by NRC panels. Once mutual interest is established between a prospective applicant and a Research Adviser, an application is submitted through the NRC WebRap system. Reviews are conducted four times each year and review results are available approximately 6-8 weeks following the application deadline.

Prospective applicants should read carefully the details of the program to which they are applying. In particular, note eligibility details. Some laboratories have citizenship restrictions (open only to U.S. citizens and permanent residents) and some laboratories have research opportunities that are not open to senior applicants (more than 5 years beyond the PhD). When searching for research opportunities you may limit your search to only those laboratories which match your eligibility criteria. In addition, note the application deadlines, as not all laboratories participate in all reviews.

There are four annual review cycles: 
  • Review Cycle: August; Opens June 1; Closes August 1
  • Review Cycle: November; Opens September 1; Closes November 1
  • Review Cycle: February; Opens December 1; Closes February 1
  • Review Cycle: May; Opens March 1; Closes May 1
