MIT Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowships in Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences

The Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) invites applications for its Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. We anticipate awarding two fellowships that last two years in support of exceptional early-career scientists with interests in the broad field of Earth, atmospheric and planetary sciences. Fellows pursue independent research, but are also encouraged to collaborate with one or more faculty in the department. Applicants are encouraged to contact prospective faculty hosts. MIT postdoctoral researchers receive mentoring and opportunities for career development throughout the postdoctoral period.

Fellows receive an annual stipend of $64,000, full coverage of premiums for affiliate health and basic dental and vision insurance, and an allowance of $5,000 per year for research and relocation expenses. The start date is flexible, but should ideally fall between June 1, 2019, and January 31, 2020. 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 November 16, 2018, and must include a curriculum vitae containing a list of publications, a two-page plan (including figures but excluding references) of research to be conducted during the fellowship, and three reference letters to be provided separately. A description of the application process is at https://eapsweb.mit.edu/education/postdoctoral-program/DPF/.

MIT is an equal employment opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, genetic information, veteran status, ancestry, or national or ethnic origin.
