The University of Texas Institute for Geophysics (UTIG) invites applications for its Postdoctoral Fellows program for 2021-2022.  UTIG, which is part of the Jackson School of Geosciences at The University of Texas at Austin, is known for research excellence and international field programs in geophysics (solid earth, marine, polar), climate science, planetary science, and energy geoscience.

     This is a highly competitive institutional award open to recent doctorates (degree within the past 3 years) in Earth, marine, and planetary science or allied fields.  The appointment is for two years. Recipients may pursue their own research interests in any scientific subfield that complements or expands ongoing UTIG programs, and are encouraged to identify and contact one or more prospective UTIG mentor(s). Successful applicants may take up residence at UTIG as early as March 1, 2021.  Salary is $60,000 per year and appointees are eligible for group health and dental insurance; UTIG will provide up to $7,500 for research and travel expenses.

     Applications must contain: 1) a current Curriculum Vitae (CV) that includes education, employment history, publications, and record of any extramural funding; 2) a two page research proposal (including references or figures) stating research interests and specific plans for their UTIG residence and addressing how they complement or expand ongoing research directions at UTIG (ig.utexas.edu/research/); and 3) names and contact information for three individuals willing to write letters of reference.  Applications may be submitted electronically as an email attachment to PostDocUTIG@ig.utexas.edu.  For full consideration, applications must be received by January 4, 2021.
