POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS - CARNEGIE INSTITUTION OF WASHINGTON
SPONSOR: CARNEGIE INSTITUTION OF WASHINGTON
PURPOSE: The Geophysical Laboratory is a private research and
educational institution emphasizing high-pressure/high-temperature
research, metamorphic, igneous, and experimental petrology, stable
isotope geochemistry, crystallography, mineral physics,
theoretical and experimental condensed matter physics, materials
research, organic geochemistry, and biogeochemistry.
DEADLINE: January 15, 2000
SUMMARY: The Geophysical Laboratory of the Carnegie Institution of
Washington invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships.
Applications should include a curriculum vitae, description of thesis
research, a list of publications, transcript/grade report, a two-
to three-page research proposal* for the fellowship period, and three
letters of recommendation to be sent directly to us by those
familiar with your work. Completed applications for fellowships
beginning on or after July 1, 2000, should be submitted by
January 15, 2000. Applicants will be notified of our decision in
March or April.
Microsoft Word documents can be included as attachments. Supporting
documents such as transcripts or reference letters must be sent by
regular mail rather than email.
The Geophysical Laboratory is an equal opportunity employer.
* The research proposal is very important. The fellowship committee
looks carefully at research proposals for evidence of
original thinking and of the ability to formulate and carry out a
research project that can be accomplished with the facilities
available to the Geophysical Laboratory. If you are not familiar with
The Geophysical Laboratory's current research, we suggest that you
look at recent publications listed on the home page, in recent Carnegie
Institution Yearbooks, and/or talk with our staff members or current
postdoctoral fellows. Information about ordering Carnegie Institution
publications is posted on the Institution's home page.
Please include the following in your application:

Local residential address:
Permanent home address (if different):
