Postdoctoral Associate at HPCAT at the Advanced Photon Source

The Geophysical Laboratory, Carnegie Institution for Science (Carnegie), seeks applications for one
postdoctoral associate in the field of high pressure Geoscience at the HPCAT facility at the Advanced
Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory. The research will focus on structure measurement of
silicate glasses at high pressures using a double-stage Paris-Edinburgh press.

The appointment is for one year, with possible extension to two years pending on the progress and
availability of funds. The position is available immediately, and will remain open until it is filled.

• Minimum qualifications: The applicant must have a Ph.D. degree in Geosciences or related fields
by the time of the employment. Experience in research using high-pressure tools (large volume
press or diamond anvil cell) is required. Successful candidates are expected to be able to work in
both independent and collaborative group environments.
• Desired qualifications: Experience in structure or physical property measurement for glass or
liquid is desirable.

Interested parties can submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae (including publications), statement of
research interests, and contact information for three references, via the Carnegie website. Only complete
applications submitted via the Carnegie website will be considered. To submit an application, click here.
