USDA is seeking qualified applicants for inclusion in the USDA Climate Change Fellows Program (CCFP). Through research, conservation practices, and partnerships, USDA aims to find solutions to agricultural challenges, enhance economic growth and create new streams of income for farmers, ranchers, producers, and private foresters. Climate Change Fellows Program (CCFP) allows USDA to hire Climate Change Fellows through a time-limited appointment. Initial appointments for candidates may be for up to a 2-year period. Additional 1-year extensions may be made. Projects will involve working with USDA employees on climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts across the Department.
