The Geophysical Laboratory of the Carnegie Institution of Washington invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships. The Geophysical Laboratory emphasizes interdisciplinary experimental and theoretical research in fields ranging from geoscience, microbiology, chemistry, to physics. The Laboratory supports world-class facilities in high-pressure research; organic, stable isotope and biogeochemistry; mineral physics and petrology; and astrobiology.
Carnegie Postdoctoral Fellowships are awarded once a year. The deadline for submitting an application is 15 January 2014 and the position begins the following summer or autumn.
Carnegie Fellowship applications must include a curriculum vitae, brief description of thesis research, three-to-five page research proposal, list of publications, and three letters of reference sent by those familiar with your work.
If you are not familiar with our current research, we suggest that you look at our recent publications listed on the home page, Carnegie Institution Yearbooks, and/or speak with staff members and current postdoctoral associates.
The fellowship committee evaluates research proposals for evidence of original thinking and to determine a candidate's ability to develop and carry out a research project that can be accomplished at the Laboratory. You are encouraged to contact a Geophysical Laboratory Staff Member about the suitability of your project.
Also, please see our listing of personnel, research areas, and major facilities.
Completed applications for a Carnegie fellowship should be submitted through this website no later than January 15, 2014.
