 The Centre for Planetary Sciences (CPS) at the University of Toronto is

a centre for the study of all planets, near and far (see

http://cps.utoronto.ca/ for details).  The CPS expects to offer several

postdoctoral fellowships of up to three years.  The starting date will

be September 1, 2014.  Salaries and funds for travel/research expenses

will be competitive.  A Ph.D. in any field of earth and planetary

sciences or astrophysics is required.  Fellows are expected to carry out

original research in observational or theoretical planetary/exoplanet

science under the general supervision of the permanent CPS-affiliated

faculty, from several relevant departments at UofT.

We only accept electronic submissions (via email at

[email protected]). Applicants will be asked to submit a

curriculum vitae, statement of research interests (3 pages) and arrange

for three letters of recommendation.  The deadline for applications and

all letters of recommendation is December 1, 2013.

The University of Toronto is strongly committed to diversity within its

community and especially welcomes applications from visible minority

group members, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities,

members of sexual minority groups, and others who may contribute to the

further diversification of ideas.


Note: CPS postdoctoral fellows will share their time between the

Scarborough and St George (downtown) campuses and they will have offices

on both campuses.
