Three Prize Postdoctoral Fellowships at Caltech in the Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences

The O.K. Earl Postdoctoral Fellowship

The California Institute of Technology is offering the O.K. Earl fellowship in Geological and Planetary Sciences beginning in the fall of 2023. The O.K. Earl Fellowship is funded by an endowment from Orrin K. Earl, Jr. to support the research of scientists typically within two years after receipt of the Ph.D. Its goal is to identify and support innovative and creative work in the earth and planetary sciences, with particular emphasis on interdisciplinary work, and to nurture the careers of exceptional individuals who contribute to a diverse and inclusive scientific workforce. Applicants with training in physics, chemistry, biology, or computer sciences are encouraged to apply. The Division is currently active in geobiology, geochemistry, geology, geophysics, petrology, seismology, environmental science and engineering, and atmospheric and planetary sciences.

This fellowship carries an annual stipend of $74,000 plus a research expense fund of $10,000/year and up to $1,500 for one-way travel costs to Pasadena. The duration of the appointment is two years, contingent upon completion of a Ph.D. degree and good progress in the first year. Fellows are eligible to participate in Caltech’s benefit programs, including health and dental programs. It is expected that the fellowship recipient be hosted by one or more division professors (designated by the Chair) who will provide mentorship.

Materials in support of an application should include curriculum vitae, list of publications, a one-page statement of research interests, and three letters of reference. Complete applications including letters of reference are due by November 11, 2022.

Applications for the O.K. Earl Fellowship can be submitted at https://applications.caltech.edu/jobs/gpspd

Fellowship candidates will automatically be considered for other available postdoctoral positions at Caltech in their fields of interest.

The Foster and Coco Stanback Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences at the California Institute of Technology invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in global environmental science beginning in the fall of 2023. The intent of the program is to support innovative and creative early career scientists working in global environmental science, including research in areas such as climate adaptation and mitigation, environmental microbiology, terrestrial and marine biogeochemistry, glaciology, paleo-climatology, atmospheric chemistry and composition, physical oceanography, and climate dynamics. We seek to nurture the careers of exceptional individuals who contribute to a diverse and inclusive scientific workforce.

The fellowship is funded in part by an endowment provided by Foster and Coco Stanback. It carries an annual stipend of $74,000 plus a research expense fund of $10,000 and up to $1,500 for one-way travel costs to Pasadena. The duration of the appointment is normally two years, contingent upon completion of the Ph.D. degree and good progress in the first year. Fellows are eligible to participate in Caltech’s benefit programs, including health and dental programs. The Stanback Fellow will be hosted by one or more division professors (designated by the Chair) who will provide both financial support and mentorship.

To be eligible for the Stanback, candidates should have received their Ph.D. no earlier than April 1, 2022, except in exceptional circumstances.

Materials in support of an application should include curriculum vitae, list of publications, a one-page statement of research interests, and three letters of reference. Complete applications including letters of reference are due by November 11, 2022.

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Comparative Planetary Evolution

The Caltech Center for Comparative Planetary Evolution (3CPE) at the California Institute of Technology solicits applications for a postdoctoral prize fellowship associated with the center.  This fellowship will be awarded to an outstanding applicant pursuing research in any area related to planetary science, either within the solar system or beyond, using observational, theoretical, or computational techniques.  The 3CPE provides a collaborative and interdisciplinary environment for researchers at Caltech with common interests spanning both astronomy and planetary science. Fellows will also have full access to Caltech's extensive resources, including the Keck and Palomar Observatories and computational facilities.

The Fellowship will commence in the fall of 2023 with an annual stipend of $74,000, a yearly research fund of $15,000 per year in direct costs, and up to $1,500 for relocation. Fellows are eligible to participate in Caltech’s benefit programs, including health and dental programs.

Applicants for the position must have a PhD in planetary science, astronomy, physics, astrophysics, geology, or an equivalent field by the date of their appointment.  Applicants must also be within four years of receiving their PhD (PhD awarded after January 1, 2019).  Applicants should submit a CV, list of publications, a statement describing their current and proposed research (4 page single spaced, 12 pt. font, not including figures and references), and three letters of recommendation by January 1, 2023. Offers will be made by Feb. 1, 2023.  Questions regarding the 3CPE fellowship should be directed to Professor Katherine de Kleer (dekleer@caltech.edu).
