The California Institute of Technology invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in global environmental science beginning in fall 2013. The fellowship is funded by an endowment provided by Foster and Coco Stanback. It carries an annual stipend of $61,000 plus a research expense fund of $5,000 and one-way travel costs to Pasadena. The duration of each appointment is normally two years, contingent upon completion of the Ph.D. degree and good progress in the first year. Fellows are eligible to participate in Caltech’s benefit programs, including health and dental plans.
This fellowship has been established to support the research of scientists typically within two years after receipt of the Ph.D. The intent of the program is to identify and support innovative and creative work in global environmental science, including areas such as biogeochemistry, glaciology, paleo-climatology, and the atmosphere and ocean sciences. It is expected that each fellowship recipient be hosted by one or more professors, who will provide mentorship and additional financial support.
Fellowship candidates will automatically be considered for other available postdoctoral positions at Caltech in their fields of interest.
