Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship to conduct
independent research in geophysics. The Geophysics group in the
Department of Terrestrial Magnetism currently consists of researchers
working in the fields of mantle and core geodynamics, seismology, and
volcanology. Related research fields on our campus include geochemistry,
cosmochemistry, planetary astronomy, and mineral physics. The successful
applicant’s primary field of research should overlap with those of the
Geophysics group, but collaboration with other research areas on campus
is encouraged.

Our fellows have access to a wide range of facilities. Scientific
computing resources include the Carnegie Memex cluster in addition to
local computing resources. DTM fellowships provide support for
conference and meeting travel, computing, and the publication of results
from postdoctoral work.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a relevant field by the time of
appointment and a promising record of research and publication. Fellows
are expected to begin in Fall 2017.  A C.V., list of publications, short
description of thesis research, brief (2-3 page) statement of research
plans during the postdoctoral fellowship, and three letters of
recommendation by those familiar with your work should be submitted
online at https://jobs.carnegiescience.edu/jobs/dtm/ using the link for
“Carnegie Postdoc Fellowships at the Department of Terrestrial
Magnetism”.  Please select “Geophysics” as one of your primary fields of
study to be considered by this group.  Applications are due by 1
December 2016.  Creativity in the proposed research figures heavily in
the evaluation of the application. Fellowships are for one year and are
normally renewable for a second year. Address any questions you have to
geofellowship at dtm.ciw.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.
