POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE
Persons with an interest in isotope geochemistry and geochronology are invited to apply for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position in the Department of Geosciences to work in the lab of Professor Blair Schoene. Candidates are expected to have a background in geology and/or geochemistry and an interest in radiogenic isotope geochemistry to problems in Earth history and/or lithospheric evolution. A PhD is required. The appointment will be for one year, beginning March 2013. Applications will be reviewed as they are received. Applicants should include a one-page statement of interest, their curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references by applying on the Princeton University job site at https://jobs.princeton.edu/. Requisition No. 1300035.
We are accepting applications for a post-doctoral or more senior researcher in low temperature geochemistry in the Department of Geosciences at Princeton University. Qualifications include a Ph.D. in Geosciences or a related field. Areas of research include non-traditional stable isotope geochemistry, carbonate sedimentology, and numerical models of sediment diagenesis. The appointment is for one year with the possibility of renewal contingent upon satisfactory performance and funding. Applicants should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, brief statement of research goals, list of publications, and contact information for three references by applying on the Princeton University jobsite at https://jobs.princeton.edu/ Requisition No. 1300012.
Harry Hess Fellows Program
The Department of Geosciences at Princeton University announces competition for the 2013-2014 Harry Hess Fellows Program.

Research may be carried out independently or in collaboration with members of the Geosciences Department. One or more Hess Fellows may be appointed. Applicants must have obtained a Ph.D. at the time of the start of the fellowship, but not more than five years before. Current areas of research include:
|• Biogeochemical Cycles
• Environmental Chemistry
• Mineral Physics
• Atmospheric Science
• Planetary Science
Applications are due before February 1st, 2013, but will continue to be accepted until the available positions are filled. Evaluation of applications and interviews of candidates will begin immediately. Applicants should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae including a publication list, a 1-2 page statement of research interests and goals, and name, address and email address of three references familiar with their work by applying on the Princeton University jobsite at https://jobs.princeton.edu.
