Postdoctoral Fellowships in astronomy, cosmochemistry, geochemistry, geophysics, planetary science, or volcanology
Applications are invited for postdoctoral fellowship positions to conduct independent research in the fields of astronomy, cosmochemistry, geochemistry, geophysics, planetary science or volcanology. DTM staff scientists pursue these fields in the general quest for improved understanding of the origin and evolution of Earth and other planets and planetary systems. The successful applicant's primary field of research should overlap with one or more of these fields, but collaboration with other research areas on campus is encouraged.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a relevant field by the time of appointment and a promising record of research and publication. Fellows are expected to begin in Fall 2018. A C.V., list of publications, short description of thesis research, brief (2-3 page) statement of research plans during the postdoctoral fellowship, and three letters of recommendation by those familiar with your work should be submitted online by 1 December 2017.
Creativity in the proposed research figures heavily in the evaluation of the application. Address any questions you have to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Carnegie Institution is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of gender, race/ethnicity, protected veteran status, disability, or other protected group status.
