Dear Colleagues,

The Department of Earth, Atmospheric & Planetary Sciences (EAPS) at the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology invites applications for the
Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. This program supports
exceptional early-career scientists with interests in the broad range of
disciplines represented in the department.

Fellows pursue independent research but are also encouraged to collaborate
with one or more faculty in the department. A faculty mentor hosts each
fellow, and applicants are encouraged to contact prospective faculty
mentors. Applicants with interests in glacier dynamics, ice-ocean
interactions, or related topics are welcome to contact Brent Minchew, who
will be an EAPS faculty member starting January 2018.

The program appoints new fellows each year through a competitive process.
Appointments are for two years. Each fellow receives an annual stipend of
$64,000, full coverage of premiums for affiliate health and basic dental
and vision insurance, and an allowance of $5,000 per year for research and
relocation expenses.

Each selected fellow will be appointed to a named fellowship. Named
fellowships include the Crosby Fellowship, the Houghton Fellowship, and the
Lorenz Fellowship. Houghton fellows are additionally invited to contribute
to educational activities in the department, at a level to be determined in
consultation with the faculty mentor.

Applications are due by December 6, 2017, and must include:

   - A single PDF file containing a curriculum vitae with a list of
   publications and a two-page plan of research to be conducted during the
   - Three reference letters

All prospective fellows, regardless of discipline, fill out a common
application form through Academic Jobs Online at
https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/10271. The application form will
generate emails instructing referees how to upload their letters.

The start date is flexible, but should ideally fall between June 1, 2018,
and January 31, 2019. Applicants must have obtained a Ph.D. by the start
date, but not more than three years before the start date. Applicants not
selected for one of the named fellowships will automatically be considered
for open postdoctoral positions in their area of expertise at MIT.

MIT is an equal employment opportunity employer. All qualified applicants
will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated
against on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender
identity, religion, disability, age, genetic information, veteran status,
ancestry, or national or ethnic origin.

More information can be found at https://eapsweb.mit.edu/DPF. Questions
about the fellowship may be directed to eapsdpf at mit.edu.

Best regards,
Brent Minchew
