The Department of the Geophysical Sciences at The University of Chicago invites applications for the T.C. Chamberlin Postdoctoral Fellowship. We seek outstanding scientists who lead creative investigations into the nature and evolution of the Earth and/or other planetary bodies–including their physics, biology, chemistry, climate, and history–and who have a desire to participate in the broad intellectual life of the department and the university. Ongoing research activities within the department can be found on the department website.
We encourage people with interests in any aspect of Earth and Planetary Sciences to apply. To give a sense of the diverse interests of our Chamberlin Fellows, in recent years they have carried out investigations of planetary habitability, tropical cyclones, paleontology, and planetary dynamics, and geochronology.
Start date is negotiable, with a target of September 1, 2022. The initial term of the Fellowships will be one year, renewable for a second year. The Fellowship comes with a competitive salary plus benefits as well as independent research funds. Applicants are required to submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of research, and request three letters of reference through AcademicJobsOnline.org at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/fellowship/19246. Consideration of complete applications (those including letters of reference) will begin October 12, 2021, and exceptional applicants will be contacted after review to schedule on campus interviews.
We seek a diverse pool of applicants who wish to join an academic community that places the highest value on rigorous inquiry and encourages diverse perspectives, experiences, groups of individuals, and ideas to inform and stimulate intellectual challenge, engagement, and exchange.
