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
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
