Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University invites
applications for Postdoctoral Fellowships in the fields of Earth and
environmental sciences. Candidates should have recently completed their
Ph.D. or should expect to complete their degree requirements by
September 2018.

Researchers at the Observatory work to understand the dynamics of the
Earth’s chemical, physical, and biological systems, from the core to the
upper atmosphere, including Earth’s interactions with human society. 
Our scientists lead research in the fields of solid Earth dynamics;
ocean, atmospheric, and climate systems; cryospheric dynamics;
paleoclimate; and biogeoscience.

The principal selection criteria for Fellows are scientific excellence
and a clearly expressed plan to investigate problems at the forefront of
Earth science. Applications from all related fields are welcomed.

Fellowships are supported institutionally for 24 months, include a
$7,500 research allowance, and will carry an annual salary
of $65,000. Successful candidates will be encouraged to apply for
external funding and may be eligible for further internal awards and
positions. Lamont is especially interested in qualified candidates whose
record of achievement will contribute to the diversity of the
Observatory’s scientific personnel.

*The deadline for applications is November 13, 2017**.*
