OPP Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (OPP-PRF) Program Office Hour

About this event

On October 24 from 3pm - 4pm EST, the Office of Polar Programs (OPP) is hosting an office hour on the OPP postdoctoral research fellowship (OPP-PRF) program. The current solicitation can be found on the NSF website. During the office hour we will discuss the program, eligibility, the application process, and NSF review criteria. Program officers will go over frequently asked questions and there will be plenty of time for attendees to ask their own questions.   

OPP postdoctoral research fellowships (OPP-PRF) provide opportunities for early career scientists, including social scientists, to conduct two years of research on a polar science topic with an expert mentor. Examples of previous awardees can be found on the PRF awardees webpage. The program provides salary plus a research allowance for travel, supplies, and other expenses. Applicants may have already worked in the polar regions or they may be new to polar science. If you are interested in applying to this program, please join the office hour to meet the program officers, learn about this amazing opportunity, and ask your own questions. 

Regardless of whether you can join this event, please contact opp-prf@nsf.gov, with any questions you may have.
