1) Postdoctoral Fellowship in Geophysics – Carnegie Institution for Science, DTM, Washington, DC

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship to conduct independent research in geophysics. The Geophysics group in the Department of Terrestrial Magnetism currently consists of researchers working in the fields of mantle and core geodynamics, seismology, and volcanology. Related research fields on our campus include geochemistry, cosmochemistry, planetary astronomy, and mineral physics. The successful applicant’s primary field of research should overlap with those of the Geophysics group, but collaboration with other research areas on campus is encouraged.

Our fellows have access to a wide range of facilities. Scientific computing resources include the Carnegie Memex cluster in addition to local computing resources. DTM fellowships provide support for conference and meeting travel, computing, and the publication of results from postdoctoral work.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a relevant field by the time of appointment and a promising record of research and publication. Fellows are expected to begin in Fall 2017.  A C.V., list of publications, short description of thesis research, brief (2-3 page) statement of research plans during the postdoctoral fellowship, and three letters of recommendation by those familiar with your work should be submitted online at https://jobs.carnegiescience.edu/jobs/dtm/ by 1 December 2016.  Creativity in the proposed research figures heavily in the evaluation of the application. Fellowships are for one year and are normally renewable for a second year. Address any questions you have to geofellowship@dtm.ciw.edu.

The Carnegie Institution is an equal opportunity employer.  All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of gender, race/ethnicity, protected veteran status, disability, or other protected group status.

3) Faculty Position in Geochemistry – Cornell University, Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences

Cornell University’s Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) seeks to fill a tenure track faculty position in the general area of geochemistry, with an emphasis on magmatic and/or metamorphic processes. This is expected to be one in a series of faculty renewal hires. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to subduction-related processes; formation, evolution and recycling of the oceanic and/or continental crust; fluid-rock interactions at hydrothermal, metamorphic and magmatic conditions; and volatile recycling. Approaches can be theoretical, observational and experimental.

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute intellectually to our broad program in solid earth processes, and to interact with other research programs and units at Cornell. Additional desirable attributes of the candidate include the potential for interactions with EAS programs in atmospheric and/or ocean sciences, and with other programs at Cornell including planetary sciences. The successful candidate will have access to a wide variety of campus facilities including those associated with Cornell’s Center for Materials Research, the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source, and the Center for Advanced Computing.

Applicants must hold a doctorate in an appropriate field, have a demonstrated ability to conduct outstanding research, and show promise for attracting external research support. The successful candidate will also be a committed educator, enthusiastic about teaching and supervising student research at all levels. We anticipate filling the position at the Assistant Professor level, but applications for Associate level will be considered; salary and rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Cornell seeks to meet the needs of dual career couples, has a Dual Career program, and is a member of the Upstate New York Higher Education Recruitment Consortium to assist with dual career searches.

Applicants should submit: a cover letter addressed to search committee chair, Dr. Geoff Abers, a curriculum vita, research statement, teaching statement, and complete contact information for three references. Statements should include teaching experience and interests, leadership efforts, and contributions to diversity.

All materials must be submitted on-line at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/8080. Inquiries only should be sent to abers@cornell.edu. Review of applications will begin November 20, 2016.
