Thompson Postdoctoral Fellowship in Geophysics, Stanford University

The Department of Geophysics at Stanford University has established the Thompson Postdoctoral Fellowship to be awarded to a candidate preferably within two years of receipt of the Ph.D. The fellowship is open to applicants in any area of geophysics, including new areas of research that cross existing disciplinary boundaries, so that students and recent graduates in Earth science, physics, chemistry, biology, or computational sciences with interests in the geophysical sciences are also encouraged to apply. Current departmental interests include, but are not limited to, energy, water, geodynamics, and natural hazards. The successful candidate will have her/his own independent research agenda, but have common interests with one or more existing faculty (who will serve as a formal mentor) to participate in their research group activities. We encourage prospective applicants to communicate in advance with prospective faculty mentors. Committed to increasing the diversity of our postdocs, we welcome applications from women, members of minority groups, protected veterans and individuals with disabilities, as well as from others who would bring varied perspectives and unique contributions to the Geophysics department.

This honorific postdoctoral fellowship will be awarded for a one-year period that can start any time between June 1, 2019 and May 31, 2020, with an anticipated extension for a second year. The compensation package includes salary of $60,000-66,000/year (depending on experience), benefits, and a $15,000 one-time research allowance. Applications received by December 16, 2018, will receive fullest consideration. A short list of candidates will be invited to campus to interview during Winter quarter.

How to apply:

Applications should include a statement of research interests and proposed research, curriculum vita, a list of publications, and the names and email addresses of three individuals from whom the search committee can request letters of reference.

The position will remain open until filled. Questions related to your submission may be directed to More information on the department can be found at
