The Department of Earth and Environmental Science at Dalhousie University invites applications for the Izaak Walton Killam Postdoctoral Fellowships.  Dalhousie University awards annually approximately 5 new fellowships in all disciplines to Canadian or International scholars of superior academic research ability, who have not obtained their PhD degree from Dalhousie, and have obtained their degrees no earlier than Jan 1, 2018. The Department has a long history of demonstrated excellence in research and teaching, with a current emphasis on marine geology/geophysics, petroleum systems, tectonics, high temperature geochemistry/experimental petrology, earth surface processes, environment and human health, and environmental action research. It hosts various analytical and experimental facilities including the newly-established National Seismic Imaging Facility, recently upgraded and expanded facilities for cosmogenic isotope sample preparation, and a new stable isotope biogeochemistry laboratory (Facilities & Laboratories list). The main campus is situated in Halifax – a city known for its youthful spirit, rich history, and scenic waterfront.

Killam Postdoctoral Fellowships are tenable for two years and currently valued at $55,000 annually including full benefits and a travel allowance for transportation to and from Halifax, a one-time research allowance ($3,000) and a conference travel grant ($1,000). In preparing the research proposal, applicants are expected to discuss potential research projects with the Faculty members in their area of research interest.
