Thompson Postdoctoral Fellowship in Geophysics

The Department of Geophysics, Stanford University, has established the  
Thompson Postdoctoral Fellowship to be awarded to a candidate  
preferably within two years of receipt of the Ph.D. The fellowship is  
open to applicants in any area of geophysics including new areas of  
research that cross existing disciplinary boundaries, so that students  
and recent graduates in Earth science, physics, chemistry, biology, or  
computational sciences with interests in the geophysical sciences are  
also encouraged to apply.  Our department is currently active in  
crustal geophysics, exploration and production geophysics, seismic  
imaging, rock physics, earthquake seismology, crustal deformation,  
stress and geomechanics, environmental geophysics, and planetary  
sciences. The successful candidate will have her/his own independent  
research agenda, but have common interests with one or more existing  
faculty (who will serve as a formal mentor) to participate in their  
research group activities.  We encourage prospective applicants to  
communicate in advance with prospective faculty mentors.

This honorific postdoctoral fellowship will be awarded for a one-year  
period that can start any time in the academic year 2011/2012, with an  
anticipated extension for a second year.  The salary is $55k to $60k  
per year depending on experience, plus a $15k research allowance.  
Applications received by January 2, 2011, will receive fullest  
consideration.  Applicants should submit a statement of research  
interests and proposed research, a curriculum vita, a list of  
publications and names of three potential referees, by email (as .pdf  
files, with the applicant name as part of the file name) to:
