Postdoctoral Scholar, Exoplanet Habitability
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral scholar position in astronomy at the University of California, Irvine. The postdoctoral researcher will work with Prof. Aomawa Shields at UCI on climate modeling studies of potentially habitable exoplanets, including systems discovered by NASA’s Kepler mission, the upcoming Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), and other space- and ground-based observatories. Desirable qualifications include experience with computer climate modeling; a research background in atmospheric or planetary science; strong
written and oral communication skills; and an ability to work well in a collaborative environment.

The appointment can begin in summer 2018, with a negotiable starting date. The initial appointment will be for one year, with a possibility of extension to longer terms contingent upon availability of funds and successful performance. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in astronomy, astrobiology, physics, or one of the earth science disciplines prior to beginning the appointment. Salary will be commensurate with experience.

Candidates should submit a CV, publication list, a statement of research interests, and other supporting documents, through the UC Irvine academic personnel recruiting portal at https://recruit.ap.uci.edu/apply/JPF04558.
