Application Deadline: February 1, 2018

The Rutgers Institute of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences (EOAS) at Rutgers University-New Brunswick invites applications for its 2018-2019 EOAS Postdoctoral Fellows Program.

EOAS unites a broad, diverse research community studying Earth’s interior, continents, oceans, atmosphere, and biosphere, their interactions and co-evolution through our planet’s history, and humanity’s dependence and impacts upon these systems.  Its postdoctoral fellowship program is intended to catalyze new, interdisciplinary research in the Earth system sciences, carried out in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of at least two EOAS faculty mentors.

Illustrative, non-exclusive, faculty-identified examples of cross-cutting areas of interest include: the formation and evolution of habitable planets; the coupled human, climatic, and biogeochemical dynamics of coastal ecosystems; and the scaling of biophysical interactions and emergent properties for planktonic organisms. Further details on these examples are provided on the EOAS web site at https://eoas.rutgers.edu/postdoctoral-program/.

For fullest consideration, applications should be received by February 1, 2018. Evaluation of applications and interviews of candidates will begin immediately. Applicants should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae including a publication list, a 3-page research proposal, and contact information for three referees familiar with their work. Initial awards are for one year, with the possibility of renewal for a second year depending upon satisfactory performance and available funding. The starting date will be September 1, 2018.

Candidates’ proposals should be developed in consultation with their proposed faculty mentors, who should be clearly identified in the proposal. For the EOAS faculty directory, see https://eoas.rutgers.edu/about/faculty-directory/<https://eoas.rutgers.edu/postdoctoral-program/>. At least one faculty mentor should be affiliated with one of the following School of Environmental and Biological Sciences departments: Ecology, Evolution & Natural Resources; Environmental Sciences; and Marine & Coastal Sciences.

Candidates will be evaluated based on (1) their past record and letters of reference, (2) the feasibility, intellectual merit, and broader impacts of their proposed research, including the potential for their work to advance cross-disciplinary research at Rutgers within the Earth system sciences, and (3) the ability of their proposed mentors to facilitate their research.
