Title-Subject: [Filtered] Postdoctoral Research Position in Planetary Materials at the University of Arizona

Message: The Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at the University of Arizona invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in plantery materials and electron microscopy.

Position Summary from the website:

The Lunar and Planetary Laboratory of the University of Arizona (https://www.lpl.arizona.edu) invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher in the fields of electron microscopy and planetary materials.

The successful applicant will be part of the planetary materials research group (https://www.lpl.arizona.edu/PMRG/) that uses electron microscopy to explore the nature and origins of planetary materials. The initial appointment is for one year with expected renewal up to three years, pending funding and satisfactory performance. The position is expected to begin January of 2020.

The University of Arizona has recently invested in electron microscopy, and the postdoctoral candidate will have access to a Cameca SX-100 electron microprobe, two Hitachi scanning electron microscopes, a ThermoScientific Helios focused-ion-beam scanning-electron microscope, and a 200 keV aberration-corrected Hitachi HF5000 scanning transmission electron microscope. These instruments are housed within the Kuiper Materials Imaging and Characterization Facility and will play a critical role in the analysis of samples to be returned by the NASA OSIRIS-REx Mission being led by the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at the University of Arizona.

Details on the position and how to apply can be found at https://uacareers.com/postings/39148.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison invites applications for the director's position in the Eugene Cameron Electron Microprobe Laboratory housed in the Department of Geoscience. This is a renewable, institutionally-supported position.

A full description is posted at

Organization: NRL

Title-Subject: [Filtered] Postdoc Position in Electron Microscopy of Planetary Materials

Message: Dear Colleagues,

A position is available now for the study of Solar System and presolar materials at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC. The successful candidate will have access to state-of-the-art facilities for laboratory study of space weathering of lunar and asteroidal samples, including newly released ANGSA soils, meteoritic organic matter, and preserved stardust in meteorites.

Experience in electron microscopy is required (SEM or TEM). Familiarity with EDS, EELS, and FIB methods are preferred. Experience in one or more complementary analysis methods, such STXM, Raman, IR or atom probe are desirable.

Interested candidates may send inquiries to rhonda.stroud@nrl.navy.mil. Please include a CV and publication list. Due to security regulations at NRL, this position requires US citizenship or permanent residency.
