The first step in the application process is to contact prospective faculty sponsor(s) to discuss potential research topics. When a topic of mutual interest is identified, the applicant will prepare and submit a 5-8 page research proposal.

The complete application packets include (1) a cover letter identifying (a) research topic, (b) prospective postdoctoral advisors, and (c) a list of 3 references with contact information, (2) a current CV, (3) 2-3 papers exemplifying the applicant's research, (4) letters of endorsement from the prospective postdoctoral advisors, and (5) the research proposal. Preference will be given to proposals that include multiple focus areas within SESE, that forge new collaborations, and that bring new research expertise to SESE consistent with likely faculty hiring strategies over the next few years. Please request that your referees submit a letter of recommendation via email (exppd at asu.edu) to the Exploration Fellowship Program Committee by January 5, 2013.

Up to two awards will be offered this year with salary ($50k/yr) and full benefits. Standard awards are 2-year appointments, renewable for a 3rd year contingent on performance and availability of funding. Typically appointments will start between July 1 and September 1, 2013.

Application materials (and any questions) should be submitted by email to exppd at asu.edu, addressed to the Exploration Fellowship Program Committee. Complete applications are due by December 31, 2012. Letters of recommendation from three references must be submitted by January 7, 2013. Evaluation of applications begins January 8, 2013 and decisions will be announced in early February.

ASU is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer that actively seeks diversity among applicants and promotes a diverse workforce.
