The School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) at Arizona State University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate who will serve as an Exploration Fellow in Earth and Space Science. The mission of the postdoctoral fellowship is to foster SESE’s interdisciplinary research program by attracting and supporting outstanding early-career scientists and engineers to pursue independent research in collaboration with faculty. Research areas within the School encompass earth and planetary science, astronomy, instrumentation and systems engineering, and science education. Anticipated start date for the position is July 2018. Incoming Fellows will receive an annual stipend of $63,000 with health benefits, plus $9,000 per year in discretionary research funds. A relocation allowance will be provided.

Interested candidates should contact two current faculty members in SESE to discuss potential collaborative research topics and determine whether they would agree to serve as an Exploration Fellow mentor. When a topic of mutual interest between the applicant and potential faculty mentors is identified, the applicant should submit a research proposal that includes: (1) a cover letter identifying the proposed research topic and the names of the two faculty mentors, (2) a current CV, (3) a research proposal not longer than five pages including figures and references, and (4) one paper that exemplifies the applicant’s research.  Preference will be given to proposals that include interdisciplinary research spanning multiple research areas within SESE.  Applicants should arrange for three letters of reference to be submitted separately.

Minimum Qualifications: Ph.D. in a relevant field by the time of appointment, but received no earlier than 2013. Applicants who received their Ph.D. prior to 2013 will not be considered.

Desired Qualifications: (1) research proposal that demonstrates relevance, interdisciplinary merit, and potential impact of the proposed research on important questions in the field and to the mission of SESE, (2) a record of prior achievement and experience that shows the applicant’s potential to accomplish the proposed research objectives, and (3) evidence of strong verbal and written communication skills. 

Application materials and any questions should be submitted by email to exppd@asu.edu, addressed to the Exploration Fellowship Committee. Applications will only be considered complete when all materials described above are received. Review of complete applications will begin on November 15, 2017.  If not filled, application review will continue until the search is closed. A background check is required for employment.
