USRA is seeking one or more scientific staff positions in the Planetary Radar Astronomy department studying near-Earth asteroids and other bodies with the Arecibo Observatory Planetary Radar system.
This position would involve observations, data processing, archiving, and modeling of near-Earth asteroids and other bodies with the Arecibo Planetary radar system. Experience with radar observations and techniques is *not* a prerequisite. Experience and interest in astronomical observations of Solar System objects, small-bodies geophysics, and/or numerical inverse modeling are desirable.
Applications can be accepted at the technical staff (M.S. or equivalent experience), post-doc (Ph.D.), or research scientist (Ph.D + relevant experience) levels.
The incumbent would be resident in Arecibo, Puerto Rico and be an employee of Universities Space Research Association. Ph.D. level researchers (post-doc or research scientist) would be expected to maintain an independent research program and encouraged to apply for partial funding support.
For technical information, please contact Mike Nolan <[email protected]>.
