UTIG Postdoctoral Fellows Program

The University of Texas Institute for Geophysics (UTIG) invites applications for its postdoctoral fellows program for 2018-2019. UTIG, which is part of the Jackson School of Geosciences at UT Austin, is known for international field programs in geophysics (solid earth, marine, polar) as well as energy geoscience, planetary science, and climate science.

The appointment is for one year and may be extended for another year based upon performance. Recipients may pursue their own research interests in any scientific subfield that complements or expands ongoing UTIG programs, and are encouraged to identify a UTIG mentor. Successful applicants may take
