Earth and Environmental Sciences: Atmospheric Sciences, Mathematics, Physics: Fluid Mechanics and Dynamics
Up to ten competitive fellowships are available for graduate students. Successful applicants will receive stipends of $7,793. Planning will allow for the Program to be held in-person or fully remotely, recognizing the uncertainties caused by the pandemic. If in-person, an allowance for travel expenses within the United States will be included. Whether in-person or remote, fellows are expected to participate full-time (40 hours per week) for the full ten weeks of the Program. The application deadline is February 15, 2021. Awards will be announced by April 1, 2021. We seek applicants from all areas of Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, and particularly encourage applications from women and members of underrepresented groups.

The Program commences with two weeks of Principal Lectures focusing on a particular theme in GFD. For 2021, the theme is "Multiscale GFD and the Ocean Submesoscale" and the lecturers will be Keith Julien (University of Colorado, Boulder), who will focus on new asymptotic formulations for capturing dynamical interactions involving turbulent small-scale processes, and Oliver Buhler (New York University), who will discuss submesocale interactions between waves and balanced flows. A multi-day workshop on submesoscale oceanography, arranged by Raffaele Ferrari (MIT), is also being planned.
