EXCITING OPPORTUNITY: SOLAR SYSTEM RESEARCH AND VENUS EXPLORATION

Join the dynamic team in the forefront of Solar System research, (exo-)planet sciences, geosciences, and astrochemistry, with a focus on Venus exploration through the ESA EnVision project.

This unique opportunity involves collaboration on a bilateral European Austrian/Czech project led by esteemed scientists Peter Woitke, Martin Ferus, Helmut Lammer, and Paul Rimmer.

As part of this project, you will delve into aqueous chemistry, enhancing the widely-used GGchem phase equilibrium code. You'll also contribute to the refinement and expansion of our understanding of H2SO4-H2O droplets in ARGO, including comprehensive treatments of droplet formation and settling. Additionally, you'll be instrumental in leveraging new experimental data to investigate the UV irradiation of acidic surfaces, crucial for understanding the production of Redox-pairs in the Venus atmosphere.

TWO-YEAR POSTDOC IN ATMOSPHERE MICROBIAL HABITABILITY MODELLING

AIX-MARSEILLE UNIVERSITÉ is seeking a 24-month Postdoc (PhD-level position) to work on a Human Frontier Science Project (HFSP) funded project ‘The atmosphere: a living, breathing ecosystem?’.
The project is a collaboration involving the MIO in Marseille (France), the University of Guelph (Canada), Monash University (Australia) and Arizona State University (USA). The position is under the supervision of Dr. James Bradley.
The overall aim of the project is to resolve the composition, capabilities, and activities of atmospheric microbes at a global scale, to distinguish whether the atmosphere exhibits structure and microbial activity characteristic of a true ecosystem, or if it is simply a passive dispersal medium for microorganisms.
Closing date for applications: 26th of April
