Job description

Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowships
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
Cambridge, MA

The Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences (EAPS) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) invites applications for its Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. We anticipate awarding two fellowships that last two years in support of exceptional early-career scientists with interests in the broad field of earth, atmospheric and planetary sciences. Fellows are expected to pursue independent research, but also encouraged to collaborate with one or more faculty in the department. Applicants should contact prospective faculty hosts whose primary affiliation is in EAPS. MIT postdoctoral researchers receive mentoring and opportunities for career development throughout the postdoctoral period.

Fellows receive an annual stipend of $64,000, full coverage of premiums for affiliate health and basic dental and vision insurance, and an allowance of $5,000 per year for research and relocation expenses. The start date is flexible, but should ideally fall between June 1, 2020 and January 31, 2021. Applicants must have obtained a Ph.D. by the start date, but not more than three years before the start date.

Applications are due by the end of November 18, 2019, and must include a curriculum vitae containing a list of publications, a two-page plan (including figures but excluding references) of research to be conducted during the fellowship, and three reference letters to be provided separately.

A description of the application process is at http://eapsweb.mit.edu/DPF.

Women and minority candidates are particularly encouraged to apply.

MIT is an equal employment opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, genetic information, veteran status, ancestry, or national or ethnic origin.
