Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship in Geosciences

The Department of Geosciences at The Pennsylvania State University invites
applications for a Distinguished Postdoctoral
Fellowship in Geosciences. This newly established position will support an
outstanding scholar interested in stimulating
interdisciplinary collaboration and innovation among the Department’s
faculty and students. The postdoctoral fellow
will receive an annual stipend of $55,000 with a benefits package and
$15,000 in discretionary research funds. The fellowship has an initial
appointment period of 18 months with the possibility of extension to two
years. The Department of Geosciences is part of the College of Earth and
Mineral Sciences, and houses internationally recognized research programs
spanning a broad spectrum of Earth Science disciplines, including earth
surface dynamics, geodynamics, crustal evolution, petrology, volcanology
and tectonics, paleobiology, hydrology, Earth system science,
(paleo)climate, paleoceanography and cryospheric science, microbial
geobiology and biogeochemistry, Earth and planetary system evolution,
solid-earth and low- temperature geochemistry, geomechanics and seismology
(further information is available at: http://www.geosc.psu.edu). The
Department is closely tied to the Materials Research Institute, the Earth
and Environmental Systems Institute, the Energy Institute, the Astrobiology
Research Center, the Institute for CyberScience, the Huck Life Sciences
Institute, and the Institutes of Energy and the Environment at Penn State.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in geosciences or a related field awarded
within three years of the time of appointment. Before applying, candidates
should explore possible research topics with faculty in the Department of
Geosciences, and develop a short (no longer than 5 pages including figures
and references) proposal of research to be completed during the fellowship
period. Preference will be given to candidates whose proposals involve
collaboration among two or more departmental faculty members, particularly
if this collaboration will establish new directions in their research.
Applicants should submit their proposal, a complete curriculum vitae, and
contact information for three references. All materials must be submitted
online. Review of applications will begin on *October 15th* and continue
until the position is filled. Appointment may begin as early as January 1,
