Postdoctoral Fellowships

image006CIGLR administers a competitive Postdoctoral Fellowship program that provides salary and research support for Postdoctoral Fellows to work closely with a CIGLR Regional Consortium University Partner and a CIGLR or GLERL scientist on a project of mutual interest. Through an annual call for proposals, CIGLR provides 1 year of funding ($48,000 + 25% fringe) for up to 2 post-doctoral fellows per year. Priority will be given to proposals that provide matching funds, and to projects that foster interaction with CIGLR’s Private Sector Partners, collaborating NOAA programs, or Supporting Initiatives. Interested postdocs should contact a University Partner Principal Investigator to develop a proposal.

Additional Postdoctoral Support Opportunities
When funds are available and research interests align, CIGLR will consider providing 1 year of funding to support a postdoctoral researcher who is need of an extension of existing funds. The funding must be issued to a University Partner; thus, interested postdocs should contact a University Partner Principal Investigator to begin the proposal process. University Partners may contact CIGLR Director Brad Cardinale ( for more information.

We seek to use these fellowships to increase diversity in STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering and math), and thus, strongly encourage proposals to support postdoctoral scholars who identify with groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in government and academic workforces.
