W. O. Crosby Postdoctoral Fellowship, MIT
The Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) invites applications for the W. O. Crosby Postdoctoral Fellowship. The fellowship supports exceptional early-career scientists with research interests in the fields of geology, geochemistry, or geobiology. Crosby Fellows pursue independent research but are encouraged to collaborate with one or more researchers in the department. A faculty mentor hosts each fellow. Prospective fellows are encouraged to contact members of the department to discuss possible collaborations. The fellowship term is two years, contingent on good progress during the first year, and includes an annual stipend of $62,000 plus an allowance of up to $7,000 per year for research, relocation and health care expenses. Fellows are eligible to participate in MIT’s Affiliate health plan. The start date of the fellowship is flexible, but should ideally fall between June 1, 2016 and January 31, 2017. Applicants must have obtained a Ph.D. by the start date, but not more than three years before the start date.
Applications are due by December 1, 2015, and must include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a two-page plan of research to be conducted during the fellowship, and three reference letters. A description of the application process is at http://ift.tt/1JVkNIm.
