Job Opportunity: Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Arkansas

The Arkansas Center for Space and Planetary Sciences at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, is offering a postdoctoral position. The Postdoctoral Fellow will be responsible for conducting research on the stability of methane and carbon dioxide clathrates, as well as clathrasils (a clathrate-equivalent with silicon dioxide cages) under martian environments, using well-developed thermodynamic codes, combined with temperature and pressure data available for the martian surface. The objective is to map the stability of clathrates as a potential resource for future exploration. In addition, the Postdoctoral Fellow will have access to the entire Keck Laboratory for Space and Planetary Science. Therefore, they will be expected to conduct research on experimental simulations of planetary surfaces (Mars, Titan, Venus, Pluto) using the facilities and instruments available in the Keck Lab. Finally, this position is expected to write and submit their own proposals competing for federal funding, as well as write manuscripts for peer-reviewed publications and present the results at conferences and workshops.
