Postdoctoral Fellowship in Lunar Science and Exploration: Petrology and Geology
Universities Space Research Association (USRA) invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in lunar science and exploration. The successful candidate will work at the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) and use the analytical facilities at the adjacent NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC), joining Dr. David A. Kring and over two dozen other scientists in the new Center for Lunar Science and Exploration. The Center is one of seven national centers of excellence supported by NASA’s Lunar Science Institute. See: http://www.lpi.usra.ed/nlsi
The main goals of the Center’s activities are to address NASA’s highest lunar science priorities, and to assist with a new generation of exploration activities in preparation of robotic and crewed landings.
We invite applications from those with recent Ph.D.s in the fields of petrology and geochemistry. Previous experience with lunar samples and/or impact lithologies is advantageous, but not required.
Questions should be directed to Dr. David A. Kring (firstname.lastname@example.org). Send a curriculum vita with list of publications, a two to three page statement of research interests, and a list of three references to email@example.com. There is no firm application deadline, although a review of applications will begin January 7, 2011.
