Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship to conduct independent research in geophysics. The Geophysics group in the Department of Terrestrial Magnetism currently consists of researchers working in the fields of mantle and core geodynamics, seismology, and volcanology. Related research fields on our campus include geochemistry, cosmochemistry, planetary astronomy, and mineral physics. The successful applicant’s primary field of research should overlap with those of the Geophysics group, but collaboration with other research areas on campus is encouraged.

Our fellows have access to a wide range of facilities. Scientific computing resources include the Carnegie Memex cluster in addition to local computing resources. DTM fellowships provide support for conference and meeting travel, computing, and the publication of results from postdoctoral work.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a relevant field by the time of appointment and a promising record of research and publication. Fellows are expected to begin in Fall 2017. A C.V., list of publications, short description of thesis research, brief (2-3 page) statement of research plans during the postdoctoral fellowship, and three letters of recommendation by those familiar with your work should be submitted online at using the link for “Carnegie Postdoc Fellowships at the Department of Terrestrial Magnetism”. Please select “Geophysics” as one of your primary fields of study to be considered by this group. Applications are due by 1 December 2016. Creativity in the proposed research figures heavily in the evaluation of the application. Fellowships are for one year and are normally renewable for a second year. Address any questions you have to geofellowship<at> The Carnegie Institution is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of gender, race/ethnicity, protected veteran status, disability, or other protected group status.
