CEPS Fellowship

Applications are invited for one or more postdoctoral positions in planetary science at the National Air and Space Museum’s Center for Earth and Planetary Studies (CEPS).  

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. CEPS scientists are actively involved in many of NASA’s and ESA’s current and planned planetary robotic missions. Research areas 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.

Please apply by October 1, 2018 through the Smithsonian SOLAA site, solaa.si.edu, and select the Earth and Planetary Sciences Fellowship program under the National Air and Space Museum.
