The Mullard Space Science Laboratory, Department of Space and Climate Physics, University College London, invites applications for a permanent Lectureship position in the area of Planetary Science.
The successful applicant will be a member of the Planetary Science Group based at the Department’s primary site in Holmbury St. Mary, Surrey. They will pursue a vigorous research programme in one or more areas of Solar System Planetary Science. They will join an internationally-recognized group working on several solar system planetary bodies, including small bodies. Research topics include plasma interactions, planetary magnetospheres, ionospheres, and aurora, cometary science, and planetary surfaces, Current team members have leading and other key roles in several solar system missions, including the upcoming JUICE, Rosalind Franklin (ExoMars 2022), and Comet Interceptor projects.
The successful candidate is expected to enhance our research programme, through involvement in current and future missions, to develop new initiatives, and to attract external income. The position will also involve participation in the departmental teaching programme, including teaching at UCL’s main campus in central London, remotely at present but in-person when this can be resumed. It is expected that they will likely have research interests related to those already covered by academic members of staff in the group. Applications by those active in all fields of Solar System planetary science are welcome, particularly in, but not limited to, the areas of outer planets and their moons. UCL offers a range of staff benefits including a relocation scheme (https://www.ucl.ac.uk/human-resources/relocation-scheme).
Application should be completed on-line www.ucl,ac,uk/hr/jobs/ . The closing date is midnight 10 May 2021.
