GRAIL: Postdoctoral position, planetary geophysics

The Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP) is inviting applications for a postdoctoral position in the field of planetary geophysics. This two year position aims to support the analysis of lunar gravity data that will be obtained by NASA's mission GRAIL (Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory). Possible research topics include the study of lunar impact craters, volcanic landforms, and the structure and evolution of the lunar crust.

Following a successful launch on September 10, 2011, a start date in early 2012 is expected. To apply, please provide a CV, publication list, contact information of two references, and a 2-page letter that motivates the envisioned research project and that describes the applicant's research interests. Multidisciplinary research projects that combine GRAIL-derived gravity data with other remotely sensed data sets will be favored.

Please respond by email to Mark Wieczorek ( before October 15.
