Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) is searching for a Postdoctoral Investigator to join the Geology & Geophysics Department. This is a regular full-time, exempt position, eligible for full benefits. The appointment is for a two-year period.
The Postdoctoral Investigator will be working on a project that has the broad objectives of seismically imaging an intact segment of oceanic-arc crust, in order to better understand crustal production in oceanic arcs -- a system of processes that are key to the habitability of planets but that are, nevertheless, poorly understood.
The institution has a top-rated postdoctoral program ( www.whoi.edu/postdoctoral/ ) that supports a dynamic postdoctoral community with formal mentoring and career guidance programs. While the primary focus of the work will be in research, the Postdoctoral Investigator will have the opportunity to participate in educational and outreach activities associated with the project.
Online applications should be submitted with a cover letter, a full curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references (to be uploaded as a separate cover letter). Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until April 1, 2021. A starting date of September 1, 2021 is desired. Informal inquiries may be made by email to Dr. Dan Lizarralde (firstname.lastname@example.org).
