The Carnegie Institution for Science invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships at its Washington, D.C., research campus. Carnegie Fellowships are competitive awards that support independent, creative experimental and computational research spanning multiple fields, including the physics and chemistry of materials under extreme environments and planetary and Earth sciences. Details on research staff, laboratory facilities, and ongoing research can be found at https://gl.carnegiescience.edu and https://dtm.carnegiescience.edu.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a relevant field by the time of appointment and a promising record of research and publication. Fellows are expected to begin in Fall 2020. A CV, list of publications, a brief description of thesis research, a maximum 4-page statement of the research you propose to conduct during the postdoctoral fellowship, and three letters of recommendation by those familiar with your work that should be submitted online by December 1, 2019, at: https://jobs.carnegiescience.edu/jobs/2020-carnegie-fellowships-washington-d-c-research-campus/
A strong application will include an innovative, original, and feasible research proposal. Fellowships are for one year and are normally renewable for a second year. Address any questions you have to BBRfellowships@carnegiescience.edu. The Carnegie Institution is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of gender, race/ethnicity, protected veteran status, disability, or other protected group status.
About Carnegie Institution for Science
Andrew Carnegie founded the Carnegie Institution of Washington (“Carnegie”) in 1902 as an organization for scientific discovery. His intention was for the institution to be home to exceptional individuals—men and women with imagination and extraordinary dedication capable of working at the cutting edge of their fields. The Carnegie Institution of Washington is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)3 institution.
Carnegie is headquartered in Washington, DC and has six departments located in 4 cities: the Department of Terrestrial Magnetism and Geophysical Laboratory in Washington, DC; the Department of Embryology in Baltimore, MD; The Observatories in Pasadena, CA, and Las Campanas, Chile; and the Departments of Plant Biology and Global Ecology in Palo Alto, CA. The Geophysical Laboratory is currently accepting applications for Carnegie Postdoctoral Fellowships.
