Job Opportunity: Staff Scientist Position, Carnegie Institution, Washington D.C.

The Department of Terrestrial Magnetism (DTM) of the Carnegie Institution of Washington seeks applications for a staff scientist position in the broad field of geophysics, including but not limited to seismology, geodynamics, volcano geophysics, tectonophysics, and geodesy. Applicants who integrate across traditional boundaries, especially those with planetary sciences and with geo- and cosmo-chemistry, are particularly encouraged to apply. We seek candidates who pursue innovative scientific programs, who will find active collaborations with our current staff, perhaps involving development of new instrumentation, and who are interested in origin and evolution of Earth and other planets.

The Carnegie Institution is a pure research organization. DTM does not have teaching duties, but we place considerable emphasis on mentoring postdoctoral scholars. Applications should be submitted through this site: and should include a curriculum vitae, brief statement of research plans, and abstracts from the applicant’s three most important papers.

Please also provide the names, email addresses, and phone numbers of three professional referees, whose letters may be requested by DTM. Questions may be sent to [email protected].

Review of applications will begin January 15, 2014, and will continue until the position is filled.
