Three-year postdoc position at the University of Idaho.
The IceCrystal project has a post-doctoral fellowship available. The individual will be expected to perform visible-near infrared reflectance (VNIR) spectral analysis of terrestrial basaltic lava flows with particular emphasis on unaltered glassy surfaces. Spectral measurements will be conducted during field campaigns, which involves travel to rugged and remote volcanic regions located in Idaho, Iceland, and Alaska. This individual will then compare spectral signatures of glassy basalts from different regions and apply these findings to lava flows on Mars using the CRISM dataset. The work will be performed in collaboration with NASA Ames Research Center and the SETI Institute. Starting date for the position is as soon as August-2018.
