Staff Position at the Geophysical Laboratory of the Carnegie Institution for Science

Posted by Tish on 09/30 at 09:16 AM

The Geophysical Laboratory of the Carnegie Institution for Science invites applications for a Staff Scientist position.  We currently seek to hire creative and exceptional scientists to develop and carry out world-leading research in areas that complement and strengthen the on-going research at the Laboratory.

The Geophysical Laboratory is a unique and vibrant research enclave that fosters an environment in which each Staff Scientist has the freedom to explore the most compelling scientific questions. Unconstrained by traditional academic boundaries, the science done at GL seamlessly merges geology, physics, biology, chemistry, and space science in the pursuit of profound questions related to the nature, origins, and evolution of matter, planets, and life. Our current research falls primarily within three overlapping areas of intense interest: Earth and Planetary Science, Astrobiology and the Origins of Life, and the Chemistry and Physics of Materials. Synergies among these interest areas, as well as links to many closely related research pursuits at Carnegie’s co-located Department of Terrestrial Magnetism, provide each Geophysical Laboratory scientist with exceptional opportunities.

Candidates are asked to submit a cover letter, a CV with a list of publications, a statement of research interests, and the names and contact information for at least three references.  Consideration of applications will begin November 1, 2015 and will continue until the position has been filled.

To submit an application, click here.  Only complete applications submitted via the Carnegie website will be considered.
The prospective researcher will work at the Geophysical Laboratory in Washington, DC and will receive 12 months of salary paid by the endowment of the Institution.  The Carnegie Institution for Science is an equal opportunity employer.  All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of gender, race/ethnicity, protected veteran status, disability, or other protected group status.
