*Wiess Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship*
*Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences, Rice University*
The Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences at Rice
University is inviting applications for the Wiess Post-Doctoral Research
Fellowship. We are seeking candidates with independent research interests
that intersect with one or more faculty within our department. Applicants
must have a Ph.D. awarded within three years of the time of appointment.
The research fellowship will be supported for two years, pending
satisfactory progress during the first year. It covers an annual stipend of
$60,000 with a benefits package and an additional annual discretionary
research allowance of $3,500.
Applicants are requested to develop a proposal of research to be undertaken
during the fellowship period. The principal selection criteria are
scientific excellence, a clearly expressed research plan to address
questions at the forefront of their field of study, and research synergies
with at least one faculty. The proposed research should, however, encompass
independent research ideas and explore new directions beyond the
applicant’s Ph.D. Preference will be given to applicants whose proposals
demonstrate independence and originality, and also the potential for
collaboration with one or more faculty in the Department of Earth,
Environmental and Planetary Sciences.
Applicants are required to submit:
1. A cover letter
2. A research proposal of no more than 3 pages (single-spaced),
3. A current CV, including a list of publications

2017. In addition, letters of reference should be submitted by three
referees to the same email address and by the same deadline.
The highest ranked applicants will be invited to visit Rice in early 2018.
Following acceptance, the appointment may begin anytime before 1 January,
