Carnegie Institution for Science

Posted: 09/15/2020

Open Until: 11/30/2020

The Carnegie Institution for Science invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships at the Earth and Planets Laboratory in Washington D.C. Carnegie Science emphasizes interdisciplinary observational, experimental and theoretical research in fields including astronomy, cosmochemistry, data science, geodynamics, experimental petrology, geobiology, geochemistry, geophysics, mineral physics, planetary science, seismology, and volcanology. Carnegie scientists conduct research in these and related fields in the general quest for improved understanding of the origin and evolution of Earth and planets, including the fundamental physics and chemistry of materials. The successful applicant’s primary field of research should overlap with one or more of these areas, but collaboration with other research areas on campus is encouraged.

The Earth and Planets Laboratory supports world-class laboratory facilities in analytical geochemistry and cosmochemistry, high-pressure research, materials spectroscopy and astrobiology. Carnegie scientists can gain access to Carnegie’s Las Campanas Observatory in Chile for astronomical observations. Carnegie Science also supports theoretical astrophysical, data analytic, geodynamic and mineral physics investigations by providing access to state-of-the-art computational facilities.

Carnegie Postdoctoral Fellowships are awarded once a year. The Fellowship is initially for one year, but can be renewed for up to a total of 3 years for astronomy applicants and 2 years for other fields. The positions allow start dates between July 1 and December 31, 2021. More detailed information about the research currently being pursued, and the facilities available at EPL can be viewed at [url=http://epl.carnegiescience.edu/]http://epl.carnegiescience.edu/[/url]

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a relevant field at the time of the start of the fellowship. The principal selection criteria will be outstanding research accomplishments, promise of future achievement, and relevance to the ongoing scientific pursuits at Carnegie’s Earth and Planets Laboratory. Carnegie Fellowship applications must include (1) a curriculum vitae including a list of publications, (2) a brief description of previous research, (3) a research proposal of no more than 4 pages, and (4) up to three letters of reference by those familiar with your work.You are encouraged to contact a Staff Member about the suitability of your project.
