Wiess Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship*
The Department of Earth Science at Rice University is launching a Wiess

anytime between July and December 2016.
The principal selection criteria for the fellow are scientific
excellence and a clearly expressed research plan to address questions at
the forefront of Earth science, broadly defined. Applicants are expected
to propose their own research ideas, but are encouraged to consider the
current spectrum of research activities in the department and to
communicate with one or more members of the faculty
The research fellowship will be supported by the Department of Earth
Science for two years pending satisfactory progress in their first year.
The fellowship covers an annual stipend of $60,000 and includes an
annual research allowance of $3,500.

the fellowship search committee (esci-postdoc at rice.edu). The
application deadline is November 1, 2015. The highest ranked candidates
will be invited to visit Rice in early 2016, and the decision of the
award will be announced March 1, 2016.
