RAPAPORT... The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) is calling on qualified researchers to apply for full-time academic research in mineralogy, geology, physics, materials science and other fields related to gemology.

The Richard T. Liddicoat Postdoctoral Research Fellowships at the GIA’s California and New York campuses are targeting early-career scientists to conduct creative, independent, publishable research. The successful candidates will collaborate with GIA scientists as well as outside research institutions and universities.

“Our postdoctoral fellows have the opportunity to conduct research that focuses on fundamental scientific problems in diamond geology, defect physics and synthesis,” Dr. Wuyi Wang, director of research and development for the GIA, said. “GIA’s fellowship program provides unique access to some of the most specialized resources and researchers related to diamonds and other gems.”

The start date of each fellowship, while flexible, requires accepted candidates to begin by January 31, 2018. Applicants must have received their Ph.D. in a relevant field by the start date and preferably within the last three years.
