Columbia's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships in the earth, environmental and ocean sciences. Candidates should have recently completed their Ph.D., or expect to finish by September 2013.
Lamont-Doherty researchers work to understand the dynamics of earth's chemical, physical and biological systems, from its inner core to upper atmosphere, as well as its interactions with humans. Successful candidates have a record of scientific excellence and a clearly expressed plan to investigate problems at the forefront of earth science.
Our scientists lead research in the fields of solid earth dynamics (e.g. seismology, geodesy, mantle dynamics, petrology/geochemistry, earthquake and rock mechanics, marine and continental tectonics/geology/geophysics), ocean and atmospheric dynamics (e.g. climate/paleoclimate, climate forecasting, physical/chemical oceanography) and life sciences (e.g. biological oceanography, biogeosciences, plant physiology, paleontology). Applications from all fields are encouraged.
The fellowship lasts 21 months and includes a $58,000 annual stipend and a $5,000 research allowance. Successful candidates are encouraged to apply for external funding and may be eligible for further internal awards and positions. Researchers currently at Lamont-Doherty, or with a Ph. D. from Columbia's Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, are ineligible.
The deadline for applications has passed. Winners will be announced in March, 2013.
