The Planetary Remote Sensing group at Cornell University is seeking a Research Associate to join our diverse team. The position will be for an initial one‐year appointment, but is renewable with continuation for a second and third year contingent upon performance, and interest. Continuation beyond three years will be contingent on continued availability of funds. The nominal starting date is flexible.
The successful candidate will work with Professor Alexander Hayes and his group, and closely collaborate with other members of the department (and their groups) including Professors Jonathan Lunine, Steven Squyres, and Philip Nicholson. While there is considerable latitude in the science program that can be pursued, specific topics of interest include numerical modeling and photogrammetric analysis with applications to Titan, 67P/Churyumov‐Gerasimenko, and Mars.
A Ph.D. in Planetary Science or a related field is required and applicants should have one to two years post PhD research experience. Applicants should have prior experience in, and a strong interest in Planetary Remote Sensing.
Applicants should submit a CV (including list of publications) and a brief (1‐2 page) description of research interests, all in a single pdf file, to Ms. Lynda Sovocool at firstname.lastname@example.org . (Please note "Planetary Research Associate" in the subject heading.) They should also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to the same email address (Please note the applicant's name and Remote Sensing RA in the subject heading). Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, although we will begin reviewing dossiers in mid‐March.
