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, volcanic processes, crustal deformation, stress and geomechanics, environmental geophysics, and planetary sciences (see https://pangea.stanford.edu/departments/geophysics/research/research-groups ). 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) and 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 with an anticipated extension for a second year.  The fellowship can start any time in the academic year 2013/2014.  The salary is $56k to $62k per year depending on experience, plus a $15k research allowance. Applications received by January 2, 2013, 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:
      thompsonfellowship “at” sesmail.stanford.edu
Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity among its students, staff, and faculty. We welcome nominations of and applications from women and members of minority groups, as well as from others who would bring additional dimensions to the university's research, teaching and service missions.
