The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University invites applications for Postdoctoral Fellowships in the fields of Earth, environmental, and climate sciences. Candidates should have recently completed their Ph.D. or should expect to complete their degree requirements by September 2023.
Researchers at the Observatory work to understand the dynamics of the Earth’s chemical, physical, and biological systems, from the core to the upper atmosphere, including Earth-human interactions. Our scientists lead research in the fields of solid Earth dynamics; ocean, atmospheric, and climate systems; cryospheric dynamics; paleoclimate; biogeoscience, and solutions to air, water or soil contamination impacting communities. An opportunity also exists for a fellowship in forest ecology with a fieldwork component at the Black Rock Forest (see www.blackrockforest.org/black-rock-forest-postdoctoral-fellowship-program/ to discover other Forest research opportunities and further Black Rock Forest specific fellowship details).
The principal selection criteria for Fellows are scientific excellence and a clearly expressed plan to investigate problems at the forefront of Earth science. Applications from all related fields are welcomed. Interested candidates are encouraged to contact potential faculty mentors.
Fellowships are supported institutionally for 24 months, include a $7,500 research allowance, and carry an annual salary of $66,000. Successful candidates will be encouraged to apply for external funding and may be eligible for further internal awards and positions. Lamont is especially interested in qualified candidates who will increase the diversity of the Observatory’s scientific personnel.
QUALIFICATIONS: Candidates should have recently completed or be nearing completion of their Ph.D.
