*Staff Scientist in Geophysics, Geochemistry, and/or Cosmochemistry*

The Department of Terrestrial Magnetism (DTM) at the Carnegie Institution
for Science seeks applicants for the position of Staff Scientist in the
broad categories of geophysics, geochemistry, and/or cosmochemistry. We
are particularly interested in innovative researchers whose observations
help to constrain the role of fluids (e.g., water, other volatiles, melt)
in: the past and present evolution of the solid Earth; the formation and
early development of Earth’s atmosphere; and/or the origin of volatiles on
Earth and other rocky planets. Subfields of interest include, but are not
limited to, geodesy, geo/cosmochemistry, magnetotellurics, noble gases,
remote sensing, seismology, and/or astrochemistry. Applicants who
integrate across traditional boundaries are particularly encouraged to
apply. The applicant should complement existing strengths within the
Department ( We especially
encourage applications from early career scientists and from members of
traditionally underrepresented groups.

The Carnegie Institution is a basic research organization with a history of
innovative instrumentation development. DTM staff scientists hold 12-month
salaried appointments and pursue independent research supported by a
combination of endowment and federal funds. DTM staff scientists do not
have teaching duties, but we place considerable emphasis on the mentoring

vitae, a brief statement of research plans, and abstracts from the
applicant’s three most important papers. Please also provide the names,
