The California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Postdoctoral Scholars Program at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in JPL’s Planetary Science Section.
The research will involve coordination of Earth-based supporting observations for the Juno mission and Juno observations themselves. Dr. Glenn Orton, in JPL’s Planetary and Exoplanetary Atmospheres Group, will serve as JPL postdoctoral advisor to the selected candidate. The appointee will carry out research in collaboration with the JPL advisor, resulting in publications in the open literature.
Candidates should have a recent PhD in planetary science with a strong background in atmospheres. Experience in radiative transfer and spacecraft observations is highly desirable. Candidates who have received their PhD within the past five years since the date of their application are eligible. Postdoctoral Scholar positions are awarded for a minimum of one-year period and may be renewed up to a maximum of three years.
