The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) has begun a strategic initiative to leverages our role as a leading organization in solar system research and comparative planetology to make new and significant contributions in understanding the nature and diversity of exoplanets. As part of this strategic effort, we are looking to hire a postdoctoral researcher with experience in exoplanet characterization. They will work with our team of exoplanet and planetary scientists, including Kevin Stevenson, Kathleen Mandt, and many others to conduct research on exoplanet atmospheric characterization and solar system comparative planetology. APL is a world leader in space science and the design, development, and operation of NASA-funded missions. Joining the APL team will open up opportunities to conduct ground- and space-based observations and to participate in work with space missions.
APL provides generous salary, benefits, and promotes a culture that values healthy work/life balance. APL's campus is located in the Baltimore-Washington metro area. Apply for this position here:
