Postdoctoral Research Position in Planetary Materials at the University of Arizona

The Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at the University of Arizona invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in plantery materials and electron microscopy.

Position Summary from the website:

The Lunar and Planetary Laboratory of the University of Arizona (https://www.lpl.arizona.edu) invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher in the fields of electron microscopy and planetary materials. The successful applicant will be part of the planetary materials research group (https://www.lpl.arizona.edu/PMRG/) that uses electron microscopy to explore the nature and origins of planetary materials. The initial appointment is for one year with expected renewal up to three years, pending funding and satisfactory performance. The position is expected to begin January of 2020.

The University of Arizona has recently invested in electron microscopy, and the postdoctoral candidate will have access to a Cameca SX-100 electron microprobe, two Hitachi scanning electron microscopes, a ThermoScientific Helios focused-ion-beam scanning-electron microscope, and a 200 keV aberration-corrected Hitachi HF5000 scanning transmission electron microscope. These instruments are housed within the Kuiper Materials Imaging and Characterization Facility and will play a critical role in the analysis of samples to be returned by the NASA OSIRIS-REx Mission being led by the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at the University of Arizona.
