The Department of Earth Science at Rice University has launched a Wiess Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship competition in the broad fields of Earth, atmospheric, and planetary sciences. For this year's competition, 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 (http://riceearthscience.org/).

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:

     A cover letter addressed to the search committee chair
     A research proposal of no more than three single-spaced pages excluding references
     A current CV
     A list of publications
     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.
