The Department of Earth Sciences at Dartmouth College invites applications for the Jospeh P. Obering Postdoctoral Fellowship.  The Fellowship provides two years of full-time salary and a research allowance, with a third year of support available contingent upon performance and funding.  This fellowship supports a scholar who provides synergy with existing research activities within the department and elsewhere at Dartmouth, including the department's core research areas: earth and planetary evolution, surface processes, and ice and climate systems.  Consistent with Dartmouth's philosophy that scholarship and teaching are mutually enriching aspects of academic life, the Obering Fellowship provides a recent PhD recipient the opportunity to pursue independent research and develop a teaching portfolio (1 course per academic year).  In addition, the fellowship promotes student and faculty diversity at Dartmouth, and throughout higher education, by supporting underrepresented minority scholars and others with a demonstrated ability to advance educational diversity.
