Dear colleagues, 

The Department of Terrestrial Magnetism (DTM) at the Carnegie
Institution for Science seeks applicants for the position of Staff
Scientist in the broad categories of geophysics, geochemistry, and/or
cosmochemistry. We are particularly interested in innovative researchers
whose observations help to constrain the role of fluids (e.g., water,
other volatiles, melt) in: the past and present evolution of the solid
Earth; the formation and early development of Earth’s atmosphere; and/or
the origin of volatiles on Earth and other rocky planets. Subfields of
interest include, but are not limited to, geodesy, geo/cosmochemistry,
magnetotellurics, noble gases, remote sensing, seismology, and/or
astrochemistry. Applicants who integrate across traditional boundaries
are particularly encouraged to apply. The applicant should complement
existing strengths within the Department
(http://dtm.carnegiescience.edu/research). We especially encourage
applications from early career scientists and from members of
traditionally underrepresented groups.

The Carnegie Institution is a basic research organization with a history
of innovative instrumentation development. DTM staff scientists hold
12-month salaried appointments and pursue independent research supported
by a combination of endowment and federal funds. DTM staff scientists do
not have teaching duties, but we place considerable emphasis on the
mentoring of postdoctoral scholars.

Applications should be submitted through
https://jobs.carnegiescience.edu/jobs/dtm/ and should include curriculum
vitae, a brief statement of research plans, and abstracts from the
applicant's three most important papers. Please also provide the names,
email addresses, and phone numbers of three professional referees, whose
letters may be requested by DTM. Review of the applications will begin
on August 1, 2016. Please contact the chair of the search committee Lara
Wagner with any questions regarding this position by email at
lwagner at carnegiescience.edu. 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.

Best regards, 
Diana Roman
