If the Postdoctoral Fellow is not a citizen or permanent resident of the United States, they must obtain valid U.S. work authorization before commencing their appointment.  The UCAR Immigration Team provides guidance and services to international visitors, researchers, and employees coming to UCAR. 

This includes:

  • Advising on immigration status, employment, travel, and the visa application process. (Please note that we cannot advise on personal legal needs or US taxes - tax law, filing returns)
  • Issuing immigration documents, visa sponsorship, authorizations, and certification/verification letters
  • Helping foreign nationals maintain legal status within the U.S.
  • Providing information and resources on life in the U.S.

Should you secure the NASA Jack Eddy Heliophysics Postdoctoral Fellowship we will put you in touch with the UCAR’s Immigration Specialist for any questions you might have.

Please address any questions regarding this information to Kate Rodd or Cindy Bruyere.
