WIESS POST-DOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP - Dept. of Earth Science, Rice Univ.
Date Posted: 9/18/2016
The Department of Earth Science at Rice University is inviting applications for the Wiess Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship in the broad fields of Earth, atmospheric, and planetary sciences. Applicants must have a Ph.D. awarded within three years of the time of appointment. The research fellowship will be supported by the Department of Earth Science for two years pending satisfactory progress in their first year. The fellowship 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 and a clearly expressed research plan to address questions at the forefront of Earth science, broadly defined. Applicants are encouraged to explore possible research synergies with faculty in the Department of Earth Science (http://earthscience.rice.edu), but the proposed research should encompass independent research ideas and explore new directions beyond the applicant’s Ph.D. Preference will be given to candidates whose proposals demonstrate independence and originality, and also the potential for collaboration with one or more faculty in the Department of Earth Science.
Candidates are required to submit:
All documents should be submitted as a single PDF file by 15 November, 2016, to the chair of the fellowship search committee (email@example.com). In addition, three letters of reference should be submitted separately by each referee to the chair of the fellowship chair committee (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 15 November, 2016.
The highest ranked candidates will be invited to visit Rice in early 2017. Following acceptance, the appointment may begin anytime before January 1st 2018. For further information or questions contact the chair of the search committee at email@example.com.
