Post-doctoral position for Mars color/photometry

Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral position associated with MRO’s High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE), located at the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at the University of Arizona. The research emphasis will be on surface and atmospheric photometric normalization and color analysis, leading to new standard and special data products, and related research. This work is also needed in preparation for the Colour and Stereo Surface Imaging System (CaSSIS) on the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter.

Experience in remote sensing and image processing is required. Independent research is also encouraged in other areas related to planetary geology and surface processes. Work on terrestrial or other planetary analogs and quantitative studies using digital topography, spectral imaging, and other data are encouraged. Experience in analysis of Mars remote-sensing datasets is desirable. Researchers with primary experience and training in terrestrial remote sensing are welcome.
