POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE

Geochronology Laboratory

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.

Higgins Laboratory

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.

Interdisciplinary - Princeton Center for Theoretical Science
Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Princeton Center for Theoretical Science (PCTS) has postdoctoral opportunities for scientists with qualifications in the theoretical geosciences. Nominations are being solicited annually. Postdoctoral applicants need to have their materials ready and submitted to enable the PCTS Faculty Fellows to begin evaluation and invitation to interview by August 2014.

If you are a theorist interested in doing postdoctoral work in the geosciences, we invite you to get in touch with one of the Department of Geosciences faculty members to explore your possible nomination, before proceeding with your application to this prestigious and very competitive program.

The Center Postdoctoral Fellowships are intended for early-career theoretical scientists, broadly construed, including the fields of astrophysics, biology, chemistry, geosciences, physics, and engineering. The nominees should be individuals with outstanding talent and accomplishment who are eager to broaden their scientific horizons. These Fellows will be fully supported by Center funds. We particularly encourage nominations of qualified candidates who are women or members of other groups that are underrepresented in the theoretical sciences. Fellows receive a three-year appointment in the Center, an office in the Center facility, and have full freedom to develop their scientific interests with the support and mentoring of the senior Faculty Fellows. It is our intention that the Center experience will have a profound impact on the scientific development and future careers of the Fellows.

Postdoctoral Research Associate or More Senior Position in the
Department of Geosciences at Princeton University

Persons with a background in computational geoscience (programming, automation, optics and graphics) and/or material science are invited to apply for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position in the Department of Geosciences to work in the lab of Professor Adam Maloof.  This individual will play a leadership role in the development of the new Automated Serial Grinder and Imager for digital fossil reconstruction at Princeton University. Familiarity with Matlab, Avizo, Amira, C++, OpenGL, Open inventor and TCL, precision grinders, CNC machine code programming and optical digital imaging is a plus. The position offers the opportunity to work with a range of specimens, from meteorites to fossils to carbon sequestration experiments, with the goal of creating quantitative 3D models of embedded objects hidden in these samples. PhD is required; some background in Earth science is preferred but not required. The initial appointment will be for one year, with the possibility of renewal contingent upon satisfactory performance and funding. Applications will be reviewed as they are received. A February 2012 start date is preferred, but there is some flexibility.  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. 1200703.
