The Department of the Geophysical Sciences at The University of Chicago invites applications for the T.C. Chamberlin Postdoctoral Fellowship. We seek outstanding scientists who lead creative investigations into the nature of Earth and other planetary bodies–their physics, biology, chemistry, climate, and history–and who have a desire to participate in the broad intellectual life of the Department and the University. We encourage people with interests in any aspect of the Earth and planetary sciences to apply. To give a sense of the diverse interests of our Chamberlin Fellows, in recent years Fellows have included people whose research focuses on the effect of clouds on climate, asteroid impacts, biogeochemical cycling, and petrology/geochronology.
Start date is negotiable, with a target of October 1, 2019. The initial term of the Fellowships will be one year, renewable for a second year. Consideration of complete applications (those including letters of reference) will begin October 8, 2018, and exceptional applicants will be contacted after review to schedule on campus interviews.
