Hi everyone,

In addition to our open faculty position, Rice Earth Science is looking 
for good postdoc candidates for our prize fellowship. If you know anyone 
who might be a good match, please foward it on to them. See the ad below.

Wiess Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship*

The Department of Earth Science at Rice University is launching a Wiess 
Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship competition in the broad fields of 
Earth, atmospheric, and planetary sciences. Interested candidates should 
have recently completed their PhD or are expected to complete their PhD 
by September 2016. The appointment of the fellow is expected to begin 
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.

Candidates are required to submit:
(1)    A cover letter addressed to the search committee chair
(2)    A research proposal of no more than 3 single-spaced pages 
excluding references
(3)    A current CV
(4)    A list of publications
(5)    A list of four referees with full contact details

All documents should be submitted as a single .pdf file to the chair of 
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.
