2016 Exploration Fellowship
The School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) at Arizona State University invites applications for the position of Exploration Fellow. The mission of the postdoctoral fellowship is to foster SESE’s interdisciplinary research program by attracting and supporting outstanding early-career scientists and engineers to pursue independent research in collaboration with SESE faculty. Research areas within SESE encompass theoretical and observational astrophysics, astrobiology, cosmology, earth and planetary science, instrumentation and systems engineering, and science education.
Interested candidates should contact two prospective faculty mentors in SESE to discuss potential collaborative research topics. When a topic of mutual interest is identified, the applicant should submit a research proposal that includes: (1) a cover letter identifying the proposed research topic and the names of the two faculty mentors, (2) a current CV, (3) a research proposal not longer than five pages, and (4) two papers exemplifying the applicant’s research. Applicants should arrange for three letters of reference to be submitted separately. Preference will be given to proposals that include multiple focus areas within SESE and that forge new collaborations.
Appointments will be for up to three years and will commence on, or shortly after, July 1, 2016. Incoming Fellows will receive an annual stipend of $61,000 with health benefits, plus $9,000 per year in discretionary research funds. A relocation allowance will be provided.
