The Postdoctoral Associate will assist the Principal Investigator (PI) in the Department of Geosciences.


  • Analyze data from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Diviner Lunar Radiometer Experiment to assess the compositional, space weathering, and thermophysical properties of the lunar surface.
  • Acquire thermal infrared spectra of minerals and mineral mixtures in a simulated lunar environment to enable more quantitative interpretation of Diviner data.
  • Collaborate with the PI and Diviner Co-investigators to apply results to analysis of orbital remote sensing data.
  • Prepare manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals based on this work.
  • Evaluate results within the framework of current understanding of the field, as determined by periodical/literature search.
