The newly formed Exploration of Planetary Ices and Climates (EPIC) group at the University of Colorado’s Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) is seeking to fill a research position in planetary geophysics and remote sensing. Candidates at the levels of RS-I and RS-II will be considered. The initial appointment is for one year, with opportunities for future extensions.
Research duties include conducting studies of the atmospheres and surfaces of planets and their natural satellites, including Earth’s moon, using data from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, and/or legacy datasets such as Cassini and Galileo. Candidates with expertise in numerical modeling and simulation of physical phenomena including ice/vapor transport, dynamical processes, or impact cratering are especially encouraged to apply. Studies of exoplanets and exomoons may also be supported.
