Welcome to the advanced Study Program
The Advanced Study Program (ASP) is unique in its encompassing support of NCAR goals and objectives. The ASP mission, broadly defined, is to help NCAR and the scientific communities it serves prepare for the future. We work across scientific disciplines in support of other NCAR units with these objectives:
- to encourage the development of early career scientists in fields related to atmospheric science;
- to direct attention to timely scientific areas needing special emphasis;
- to help organize new science initiatives;
- to support interactions with universities;
- to promote continuing education at NCAR.

Our Programs... at a glance
Postdoctoral Fellowship Program
The postdoctoral program provides an opportunity for recent-Ph.D. scientists to continue to pursue their research interests in atmospheric and related science. The program also invites postdoctorates from a variety of disciplines to apply their training to research in the atmospheric sciences.
Faculty Fellowship Program
The Faculty Fellowship Program provides opportunities and resources for faculty employed at universities to work in residence at NCAR, and enables NCAR Scientists to spend a period of time in residence at US universities.
Graduate Student Visitor Program
The Graduate Student Visitor Program is designed to provide NCAR staff opportunities to bring graduate students to NCAR for 3 to 12-month collaborative visits with the endorsement of their thesis advisors and in pursuit of their thesis research. These visits have the goal of enhancing NCAR partnerships with other public and private institutions.
Exploring our sun by looking at the other stars
Most of what we know about other stars is based on our knowledge of the Sun. We are modifying the standard solar models to compute stellar models that match the observations of other stars. For the cases where these models do not match the observations, we need to spot the problematic points in our models, and try to improve them. The idea is to characterize as many Sun-like stars as possible, and to have a large sample of characterized stars that cover a wide range in the space of stellar parameters.
