Postdoctoral Fellowship in Geophysics

Carnegie Institution for Science, DTM, Washington, DC

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship to conduct
independent research in geophysics at the Department of Terrestrial
Magnetism (DTM). The geophysics group at DTM currently consists of
researchers working in the fields of mantle and core geodynamics,
seismology, geodesy, 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 2018. A C.V., list of publications, a one-page
description of thesis research, a two- to three-page statement of the
research you propose to conduct 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/ by 1
December 2017. A strong application will include an innovative, original,
and feasible research proposal. Fellowships are for one year and are
normally renewable for a second year. Address any questions you have to

opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration
