Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship positions at the National Air and Space Museum’s Center for Earth and Planetary Studies. The fellowship supports independent research projects in planetary science.
The Center for Earth and Planetary Studies (CEPS) is the scientific research unit at the National Air and Space Museum. Most of the research in CEPS focuses on planetary geologic and geophysical processes that have shaped the surfaces of rocky and icy bodies in the solar system including the Earth and Moon. CEPS scientists are actively involved in many of NASA’s and ESA’s current and planned planetary robotic missions. Research is supported by an extensive collection of archival photographs of the Moon, and images and maps the planets and their satellites.
Research areas of interest include planetary landscape evolution, planetary volcanism and cryovolcanism, tectonics of rocky and icy bodies, radar remote sensing and radar sounder studies, and analysis of terrestrial analog landforms. Competitive proposals should demonstrate knowledge and expertise in areas such as quantitative remote sensing analysis, tectonics and tectonophysics, volcanic processes, and quantitative terrestrial and planetary geomorphology.
