Two Postdoctoral Positions in Mars Science

The Department of Planetology and Habitability at the Centro de Astrobiología (CAB) invites applications for two postdoctoral positions to support investigations on the nature of early Mars environments. We are seeking enthusiastic and excellent candidates to join a planetary science team funded by the European Research Council (ERC) at one of the leading Astrobiology institutions in Europe.

Applicants should have a recent Ph.D. in Planetary Sciences or related discipline and a background in Mars research. Expertise in planetary geology and geochemistry is required for each position.

The two positions, located in Madrid, would be for two years with a possible extension to a third year contingent upon satisfactory performance.

Applicants should send a letter of interest, a CV with a list of publications, a brief (maximum two pages) statement of research interests, and a list of three references no later than September 30 to Alberto Fairén ([email protected]).

The starting date is negotiable but should be no later than January 1, 2023.
