Multiple USGS Postdoc Fellowships (Mendenhall)


Posted: 08/17/2022

Open Until: 11/01/2022

The USGS Earthquake Science Center and Geologic Hazards Science Center invite applications to the Mendenhall Research Fellowship Program on a variety of research topics. Why is it great to work for USGS? We serve the Nation by providing reliable scientific information while valuing differences, encouraging each other, and collaborating to make new discoveries. Fellowships provide 2 years of salary and benefits, as well as funding to support the proposed research project. Interested candidates can view position descriptions at the sites below. Positions are based out of one or more of our offices in California, Colorado, New Mexico, and Washington.

Candidates are strongly encouraged to contact the Research Advisors listed each opportunity early in the application process to discuss project ideas.

The deadline to apply is 1 November 2022.
