Glenadore and Howard L. Pim Postdoctoral Fellowship in Global Change
Johns Hopkins University
Location: Baltimore, Maryland
Internal Number: A-60472-15
The Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences at Johns Hopkins University invites applications for the Glenadore and Howard L. Pim Postdoctoral Fellowship in Global Change.
The duration of the fellowship is one year with an anticipated extension for a second year. The position carries a competitive salary and fringe benefits, includes an annual stipend for travel and research expenses, and provides eligibility to participate in Johns Hopkins University health plans.
The Morton K. Blaustein Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Johns Hopkins University offers programs of study and research in the basic Earth sciences, particularly:
Geology, the science of the solid Earth
Geochemistry, devoted to understanding the chemistry of the solid Earth and natural waters
Geophysics, concerned with a quantitative description of physical processes in the Earth and planetary sciences
Oceanography, the study of ocean currents, biogeochemistry, and the ocean's role in climate
Atmospheric sciences, particularly the dynamics of atmospheric circulation both on Earth and other outer planets and their satellites
Ecology and paleoecology, the study of the relationships between organisms and their environment today and in the geologic past.
The department's primary goals are research and the training of scholars who will contribute to the future of these disciplines. The programs emphasize basic principles and concepts rather than applied aspects.
We seek an outstanding individual with a recent Ph.D. who is pursuing interdisciplinary research in Global Change. Candidates whose research spans the natural sciences, social sciences, health sciences and/or public policy aspects of global change are preferred. Areas of interest include but are not limited to (1) fundamental processes driving global change; (2) the impact of global change on air quality, water resources, ecosystems and ecological processes, and/or human health; (3) adaptation of societal and natural systems to the effects of global change; (4) energy resources; and (5) analysis of economic, sociological, public health, and policy implications of global change. Special consideration will be given to candidates who will collaborate with faculty from other Hopkins departments. Information on our department can be found at https://eps.jhu.edu. Applicants should contact faculty with whom they are interested in working.
Consideration of applications will begin March 31, 2019. Applications can only be submitted electronically through Interfolio. To apply, access this link http://apply.interfolio.com/60472 to forward your curriculum vitae (with your email address), names and emails of three or more references, and a brief research plan.

Hopkins students are challenged not just to learn but also to advance learning itself. Critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and entrepreneurship are all encouraged and nourished in this unique educational environment. After more than 130 years, Johns Hopkins remains a world leader in both teaching and research. Faculty members and their research colleagues at the university's Applied Physics Laboratory have each year since 1979 won Johns Hopkins more federal research and development funding than any other university. The university has nine academic divisions and campuses throughout the Baltimore-Washington area. The Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the Whiting School of Engineering, the School of Education and the Carey Business School are based at the Homewood campus in northern Baltimore. The schools of Medicine, Public Health, and Nursing share a campus in east Baltimore with The Johns Hopkins Hospital. The Peabody Institute, a leading professional school of music, is located on Mount Vernon Place in downtown Bal...timore. The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies is located in Washington's Dupont Circle area.
