The Department of the Geophysical Sciences at The University of Chicago invites applications for the T.C. Chamberlin Postdoctoral Fellowship. We seek outstanding scientists who lead creative investigations into the nature of Earth and other planetary bodies -- their physics, biology, chemistry, climate, and history -- and who have a desire to participate in the broad intellectual life of the Department and the University. Start date is negotiable, with a target of October 2018. The initial term of the Fellowships will be one year, renewable for a second year. A competitive salary will be offered, plus benefits. Research funds are also available. Applications should be received before 16 October 2017 to receive full consideration, and exceptional applicants will be contacted in November to schedule on-campus interviews in January 2018. Please email a single pdf file containing a CV, a 2-4 page research plan, and names and contact information for at least three references, to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
