W. O. Crosby Postdoctoral Fellowship, MIT:

The Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) invites applications for the W. O. Crosby Postdoctoral Fellowship. The two-year fellowship supports exceptional early-career scientists with research interests in the fields of geology, geochemistry, or geobiology. Crosby Fellows pursue independent research but are encouraged to collaborate with one or more researchers in the department. A faculty mentor hosts each fellow. Prospective fellows are strongly encouraged to contact members of the department to discuss possible collaborations. The fellowship includes an annual stipend of $64,000, full coverage of premiums for affiliate health, dental and vision insurance, and an allowance of $5,000 per year for research and relocation expenses. The start date of the fellowship is flexible, but should ideally fall between June 1, 2017 and January 31, 2018. Applicants must have obtained a Ph.D. by the start date, but not more than three years before the start date.

Applications are due by December 1, 2016, and must include a curriculum vitae with a list of publications, a two-page plan of research to be conducted during the fellowship, and three reference letters.
