RESEARCH SCIENTIST IN SPACE PHYSICS AT LASP

The Space Plasma Group at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space
Physics (LASP), University of Colorado, Boulder (CU) invites
applications for Research Scientists in Space Physics at a ranking of
Research Scientist I or II (RS-I, RS-2).

The research project is focused on research utilizing in-situ
spacecraft data with a focus on plasma physics in the unmagnetized
environment of Mars. This is a position within the Langmuir Probe and
Waves (LPW) team and will make use of electron density and temperature
data from the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN (MAVEN) mission.
Responsibilities will also include the publication of scientific
results based on MAVEN LPW data and the dissemination of those results
at scientific conferences.

MERCURY LAB WORKSHOP - CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

The abstract submission for the Mercury Laboratory Workshop 2024 is now
open:

https://www.cosmos.esa.int/web/bepicolombo-mercury-lab-workshop/abstract

The Mercury Laboratory Workshop is hosted by the Institute of Planetary
Research of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) on 16-18 September, 2024,
in Berlin. The aim of the workshop is to discuss the laboratory
experiments available and/or desiderable worldwide relevant to Mercury
and to connect laboratory researchers working on related Mercury
research. The goal of the workshop is to design an experimental plan on
common Mercury analogs in preparation for the investigation of the
large scientific return from the BepiColombo observations.

The abstract submission deadline is July 15 at 5 pm (CEST) and the
registration is open until August 15.

For more information about the workshop, please visit our website:

For any questions please contact: Oceane Barraud
(oceane.barraud@dlr.de) or Solmaz Adeli (solmaz.adeli@dlr.de).

We look forward to welcoming you at DLR.

GSA 2024 SESSION T145: GEOMORPHOLOGY AND LANDSCAPE EVOLUTION OF MARS

The geomorphology of Mars provides insight into the planet's complex
history. Detailed observations and analyses of the surface allows for
interpretations not only of the mechanics and processes at work on
Mars, but on Earth as well. This session focuses on aeolian, fluvial,
glacial, lacustrine, and crater degradation processes to investigate
the geomorphology, geology, and climate history of Mars. We welcome
abstracts describing research utilizing orbital and in situ Martian
datasets, as well as terrestrial analogues, to better understand the
landscape evolution of Mars. This session has successfully been a part
of the GSA program for the past six years, and it has always been well
received.

Session Advocates: Sharon Wilson, National Air and Space Museum,
Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC; Rebecca Williams, Planetary
Science Institute, Tucson, AZ; Matthew Chojnacki, Planetary Science
Institute, Tucson, AZ; Elena Favaro, The Open Univ., Milton Keynes,
United Kingdom and Nicholas Warner, SUNY Geneseo, Geneseo, NY

Submit your abstract by June 18:

TWO POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS IN EXOPLANET SCIENCE FOR PLATO AT DLR BERLIN

The DLR Institute of Planetary Research is a central DLR site for the
construction and operation of scientific instruments for satellite
missions developed by ESA, NASA and JAXA.

The positions are assigned to the department of Extrasolar Planets and
Atmospheres in collaboration with the department of Planetary Physics
and the Planetary Sciences and Remote Sensing group at FU Berlin. For
more information on these departments, go to:

https://www.dlr.de/en/pf/about-us/departments/planetary-physics

https://www.geo.fu-berlin.de/en/geol/fachrichtungen/planet/index.html

The research activities will be closely related to the ESA M-class
mission PLATO (PLAnetary Transits and Oscillations of stars), whose
goal is the search and characterization of extrasolar planets,
including Earth-like planets.

The candidates will:

- Investigate the interior structure of planets with the aim of
  determining their composition using observational constraints from
  PLATO:

- Investigate the statistical properties of planetary systems with the
  aim of understanding the processes of planet formation and evolution
  in the PLATO context:
