The Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences at Brown University invites applications for its postdoctoral research associate program. The department seeks outstanding candidates in the field of Earth and planetary sciences, with preference given to applicants whose research addresses key questions regarding Earth structure, composition, dynamics, deformation and material properties. Postdoctoral associates are encouraged to pursue their own research interests, but close interaction with Brown Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences faculty is expected. Information about the department is available at http://www.brown.edu/academics/earth-environmental-planetary-sciences.
These competitive, institutionally-supported postdoctoral positions are awarded for a one-year period, with possible extension for a second year. The initial annual stipend is $56,500 and a research/travel fund of $5,000 is provided in each year.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a brief proposal for the research to be carried out at Brown (with identification of a Brown faculty sponsor), a statement of research accomplishments, and three letters of recommendation to: http://apply.interfolio.com/26789 no later than January 15, 2015.  Inquiries may be directed by email to geopostdocsearch@brown.edu.  Decisions will be made in Spring 2015 for a position start date as early as July 1, 2015. Applicants should have a recent Ph.D. (or equivalent degree) or should be 2014-2015 degree candidates. Degree completion is required by the start date of the appointment.
