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/or other planetary bodies.
We encourage people with interests in any aspect of 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 planetary habitability, tropical cyclones, asteroid impacts, and petrology/geochronology.
Start date is negotiable, with a target of October 1, 2020. Please email a single pdf file containing a CV, a 2-4 page research plan, and names and contact information for at least three references, to: [email protected]. Applicants should also arrange for letters to be sent by their named references to the same address.
Consideration of complete applications (those including letters of reference) will begin October 7, 2019.
