        Postdoctoral Fellowships
        in the
        Earth, Ocean&Atmospheric Sciences

        Job Number 39607

The Department of Earth, Ocean&Atmospheric Science (EOAS) at Florida 
State University invites applications for Postdoctoral Fellowships in 
the fields of solid Earth dynamics, isotope geochemistry, and arctic 
carbon cycling. Candidates should have completed their Ph.D. within the 
last four years or should expect to complete their degree requirements 
by time of appointment.

Researchers at EOAS work to understand the dynamics of the Earth’s 
chemical, physical and biological systems, from the core to the upper 
atmosphere, including Earth’s interactions with human society. Our 
scientists lead research in the fields of solid Earth, ocean, and 
atmospheric systems.

Applicants are sought for two-year fellowship positions to conduct 
supervised research and teaching duties. Fellows will work under 
direction of FSU faculty to support funded research programs (see 
below). Additionally, they will develop classroom teaching skills during 
one semester of each year, first under supervision and, during the 
second year, as instructors of record for an undergraduate class (see 
below). Research programs and instructional mentors seeking fellows 
include the following:

• Insights into the volatile budget in the Earth’s interior using high 
pressure experiments, geochemical analysis, and numerical simulations. 
(see online info 

• Applying novel geochemical methods (e.g. novel stable metal isotopes) 
to the sedimentary record to trace the redox evolution throughout Earth 
history (see online info 

• Researching carbon storage and flux in arctic permafrost soils(see 
online info <http://www.eoas.fsu.edu/postdoc-fellow-search#chanton>).

Eligible candidates must hold a PhD in any of the three areas of 
interest described above at the time of appointment. Salary is $45,000 
per annum.  Health insurance is provided at no cost to the fellow. A 
computer allowance of $1,500 is provided. The Florida State University 
is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer and women, 
minorities, and individuals with disabilities, are strongly encouraged 
to apply. Applicants should send a CV, a statement of interest that 
addresses both research and teaching plans, and the names and contact 
information for three professional references through application via 
the OMNI system (see below). Review of applications will begin February 
26, 2016.
