The Department of Geology and Geophysics at Yale University (www.geology.yale.edu) announces an annual competition for a Bateman Postdoctoral Fellowship. We welcome applicants with research interests across the full range of disciplines within the Earth and Planetary Sciences, including studies of geophysics and planetary physics, tectonics, oceans, atmosphere, climate dynamics, geochemistry, paleoclimatology, and the evolution of life. The Postdoctoral Associate position is awarded for two years, providing a stipend ($60,000/yr) and base research funds ($5,000/yr), plus health care benefits and limited expenses for relocation. Applicants should contact a sponsor in the Department to identify potential research projects, and then submit a short (2-3 page) statement of research interests and proposed research, a curriculum vita with a full list of publications, an endorsement letter from the sponsoring faculty member, and three confidential letters of reference. The deadline for receipt of all application materials is December 15, 2018, and successful candidates are expected to begin their program at Yale between July 1 and December 31, 2019.
