JPL’s Planetary Interiors and Geophysics Group is currently seeking a Postdoctoral Scholar. The successful candidate will compute full waveform seismic models and use other advanced techniques to investigate the potential seismic properties of icy ocean worlds in the Solar System, such as Europa, Enceladus, Titan, Ganymede and Callisto. Model results will be interpreted in the context of understanding the properties of near-surfaces and deeper interiors – thermal, rheological, and chemical – and indicators of different types of anticipated activity. A part of the work will also consist in aiding in analyses for the InSight mission to Mars. In addition to working with the primary advisor, Dr. Steven Vance, the candidate will also work closely with JPL scientist Dr. Mark Panning. The appointee will carry out research in collaboration with the JPL advisor and others, resulting in publications in the open literature.
