The California Alliance Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is now accepting applications for the 2016-2017 academic year

The California Alliance invites prospective postdoctoral fellows to submit ONE application for postdoctoral positions at any of the four partner universities: Berkeley, Caltech, Stanford and UCLA. These are postdoctoral awards for up to two-years, with annual stipends of $55K to $70K in the mathematical, physical and computer sciences, chemistry, and engineering.

There is no formal application deadline, but applicants are encouraged to apply by January 4, 2016, because the Alliance will begin reviewing applications and making award decisions at that time.

CSDMS Student Modeler Award 2016 Application

The Community Surface Dynamics Modeling System (CSDMS) promotes the modeling of earth surface processes by developing, and disseminating software modules that predict the movement of fluids, and the flux of sediment and solutes in landscapes and their sedimentary basins.

CSDMS invites graduate students from earth and computer sciences to compete for the annual “CSDMS Student Modeler Award.” If you have completed an outstanding research project in 2015, which involved developing an earth science model (terrestrial, coastal, marine or biogeochemistry), a modeling tool, or module linking technology, you can qualify for this award! Entries will be judged on the basis of ingenuity, applicability, and contribution toward the advancement of geoscience modeling by a panel of experts in the field. We’ll have a prize!  In addition, CSDMS will fund your visit to our annual meeting in Boulder, Colorado May 17-19 to learn all about the CSDMS.  You may possibly have a chance to work with CSDMS scientists to develop your model into a CSDMS component.

Please submit a one-page abstract highlighting your results, a digital copy of your thesis or research paper, and contact information for your supervisor to the CSDMS Facility: csdms@colorado.edu.

Deadline for application: January 10th, 2016

Recipient of this year’s award will be announced by the end of January 2016.

STEM Funding and Research Opportunities

STEM funding and research opportunities on PathwaysToScience.org

NOAA’s Ernest F. Hollings and Educational Partnership Program Undergraduate Scholarship opportunities. Both applications are open from now until January 29th, 2016.

The Educational Partnership Program is specifically for students attending Minority Serving Institutions, while Hollings is open to all students in NOAA-related fields. They share a common application, so students may apply for both programs.

Stanford: Tenure-track opening in Geological Sciences

The Department of Geological Sciences at Stanford is seeking candidates to lead a vibrant research and educational program in the broadly defined area of Mantle Processes. Specific areas of interest include (but are not limited to) the composition, structure, and evolution of our planet over varying length and time scales. We are particularly interested in those who seek to make connections between deep and shallow processes (for example, how the dynamically flowing and recirculating mantle interacts with the crust, hydrosphere, and atmosphere). Research approaches should encompass some combination of field, laboratory, and modeling approaches.

University of Connecticut: Program Coordinator

The Institute for Student Success seeks candidates for a Program Coordinator for the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Program at the Storrs campus. The person in this position will develop and implement programs and services to significantly increase the numbers of students matriculating into and successfully completing high quality degree programs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. This includes developing innovative and sustained strategies that result in the graduation of well-prepared, highly-qualified students from underrepresented groups who pursue graduate studies or careers in STEM.

The Department of Geological Sciences at Stanford: Tenure-track opening in Geological Sciences

The Department of Geological Sciences at Stanford is seeking candidates to lead a vibrant research and educational program in the broadly defined area of Mantle Processes. Specific areas of interest include (but are not limited to) the composition, structure, and evolution of our planet over varying length and time scales. We are particularly interested in those who seek to make connections between deep and shallow processes (for example, how the dynamically flowing and recirculating mantle interacts with the crust, hydrosphere, and atmosphere). Research approaches should encompass some combination of field, laboratory, and modeling approaches.

The appointment will be at the junior level (Assistant or untenured Associate Professor). The successful candidate will be expected to develop an independent world-class program of research, interface as appropriate with existing programs in the Geological Sciences and in the School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences, and teach at the undergraduate and graduate level.

Applicants will need to submit a cover letter, curriculum vita, statement of research and teaching interests, list of three references with contact information, and three recently-published journal articles that are representative of the applicant’s research to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/6199. Review of applications is ongoing. The position will remain open until filled. Questions can be directed to Lauren Nelson at lmnelson@stanford.edu.
