Job Opportunity: Postdoctoral Researcher, Planetary Mapping of Impact Craters

The Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI), part of the Universities Space Research Association, invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in the area of planetary mapping of impact craters.

The successful candidate will work with Dr. Paul Schenk at the Lunar and Planetary Institute (Houston, TX) on the mapping and cataloging of impact craters on Ceres, Vesta, and icy satellites. Half of the fellowship will be funded by a NASA grant to study impact-related morphologies. The remainder of the fellowship would be available for planetary research of the applicant’s choice, and for service to NASA and participation in Education and Engagement activities. The successful applicant will have access to computer resources at the LPI. Candidates with backgrounds in planetary mapping are strongly encouraged to apply.
