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 2015/2016, with an anticipated extension for a second year.  The compensation package includes salary of $56-62,000/year depending on experience, benefits, and a $15k one-time research allowance. Applications received by January 5, 2015, will receive fullest consideration.  


How to apply:

Applications should include a statement of research interests and proposed research, curriculum vita, a list of publications, and the names and email addresses of three individuals from whom the search committee can request letters of reference. Please apply online at: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/5063.

The position will remain open until filled. Questions related to your submission may be directed to thompsonfellowship at sesmail.stanford.edu. More information on the department can be found at https://earth.stanford.edu/geophysics/
