ASP postdoctoral fellows provide ongoing advice to the Director and organize the Thompson Lectures, the ASP Seminar Series, and the Research Reviews. Membership on these Committees evolves from year to year as the fellows come and go from the program.

The NCAR/ASP seminar series features monthly talks given by invited speakers from NCAR and other research institutions from the Boulder area. These talks primarily address an audience of graduate students, postdocs and young scientists from various fields related to atmospheric and solar science. The aim of the seminar series is to engage scientific interest amongst students, postdocs and scientists in a variety of atmospheric science issues.

Thompson Lecture Series
In 1998 ASP established the "Thompson Lecture Series," named in honor of Phil Thompson who founded the Advanced Study Program and was NCAR's first associate director. Under this program, prominent scientists are brought to NCAR for short visits that promote interaction between them and the postdoctoral fellows and other junior scientists at NCAR.
