Responsibilities will include: characterization of meteorites and interplanetary dust particles; timely reporting of results at international meetings and journals; and interfacing with other groups within the EOS team to understand the origins and delivery of organics to modeled planetary systems.
The successful applicant must have completed the requirements for the Ph.D. degree upon hire.
Demonstrated experience in electron microscopy is required.
Experience with planetary materials will be considered an advantage.
