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 Applicants should contact faculty with whom they are interested in working.

Application Instructions

Consideration of applications will begin March 31, 2019. Applications can only be submitted electronically through Interfolio. To apply, access this link to forward your curriculum vitae (with your email address), names and emails of three or more references, and a brief research plan.
