William E. White Postdoctoral Scholarship
Geological Sciences and Geological Engineering
QUEEN'S University at Kingston, Ontario, Canada
The Department of Geological Sciences and Geological Engineering of Queen's University, one of Canada's premier earth-science departments, invites applications for its William E. White Postdoctoral Scholarship, created from a fund endowed by the estate of William E. White. The award will be made for one year and may be renewed for a second year. The annual stipend will be no less than $50,000.
The William E. White Postdoctoral Scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding scientist who has completed the Ph.D. degree, normally within the two-year period preceding the time of the appointment. The area of research is open, but the scholar's research must be complementary to that being pursued in the Department of Geological Sciences and Geological Engineering. The research program to be undertaken and the level of support of research costs and moving expenses will be negotiated with a faculty member at the time the award is made. Potential applicants may obtain an outline of current research interests on the Departmental website http://www.queensu.ca/geol/index.html and are strongly encouraged to initiate contact with a potential faculty supervisor in advance of applying. Fit with the research interests of the Department and the research excellence of the candidate will be the primary considerations in the selection process.
The Department invites applications from all qualified individuals. Queen's University is committed to employment equity and diversity in the workplace and welcomes applications from women, visible minorities, aboriginal people, persons with disabilities, and persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity.
Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests, and samples of research writing to the following address. Applicants should contact their referees and arrange for at least three confidential letters of reference to be sent to the address below. Review of complete applications will begin on September 30, 2012.
