ACOM Visitor Program

COVID-19 Status Update: July 20, 2022

At NCAR, we are committed to the health and safety of everyone who visits us. We are closely monitoring the coronavirus situation in the U.S. and internationally, and we are in contact with our local, state, and federal partners to receive guidance on how to proceed with our programs, including internships and fellowships.

UCAR's current Covid-19 status is green. Our Colorado and Wyoming facilities are open to staff and visitors with advance approval. Vaccination, quarantine (if applicable due to exposure) and training requirements will apply. We are currently working in a hybrid in-person/virtual environment.

Thank you for understanding this evolving situation. We hope to be able to host you in the future at NCAR.

Partnerships with the wider science community are at the heart of the NCAR mission, and are an important component of all research conducted within ACOM. Strong collaborations with University groups are in particular paramount to the NCAR and ACOM mission.

Through the Laboratory's Visitor Program, scientific and educational partnerships between ACOM and national and international members of the atmospheric chemistry community are enhanced. Scientists wishing to visit ACOM to conduct collaborative research should contact a member of the ACOM staff, who would serve as host for the visit. Opportunities are available for visits of varying duration, from 1 day to several years. Funding support may be available for some visits.  The ACOM Visitor Program serves to augment other NCAR and UCAR visitor, education and exchange programs, such as those sponsored by the NCAR Advance Study Program,, the UCAR UVISIT program,, and the UCAR Center for Science Education. Additional information for potential post-docs can be found at

Coordination of visits to ACOM is handled by the visitor's host and the Laboratory's administrative staff. The visitor's host must be an ACOM staff member. The administrative staff is available to answer questions about the program and to facilitate visits by handling all administrative needs. Prospective visitors should work with their hosts to determine the nature, duration and financial details of their visit. The administrative group will work with the visitor and visitor's host to handle the details.

For more information, contact Shaun Bush, ACOM's Visitor Administrator. Also, please visit UCAR Community Opportunities for more information on other types of visitor appointments.
