Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University invites applications for Postdoctoral Fellowships in the fields of Earth, environmental, and climate sciences. Candidates should have recently completed their Ph.D. or should expect to complete their degree requirements by September 2024.

Researchers at the Observatory work to understand the dynamics of the Earth’s chemical, physical and biological systems, from the core to the upper atmosphere, including Earth-human interactions. Our scientists lead research in the fields of solid Earth dynamics; ocean, atmospheric and climate systems; cryospheric dynamics; paleoclimate; biogeoscience; and solutions to air, water or soil contamination impacting communities.

The principal selection criteria for Fellows are scientific excellence and a clearly expressed plan to investigate problems at the forefront of Earth science. Applications from all related fields are welcome. Interested candidates are encouraged to contact potential faculty mentors as early as possible.


Deadline: Nov. 3, 2023

Amount Description

Fellowships are supported institutionally for 24 months, include a $7,500 research allowance, and carry an annual salary of $66,000.
