Post Doctoral Research Associate

Deadline: October 1st 2023, 11:59pm BS

With guidance from the PI and CO-Is, the PDRA will critically analyse the spread of low/medium/high risk projects in the community, cataloguing projects and missions over the past ~20 years, and develop a strategy for improved balance of risk and reward in the field moving forward, and/or investigate how effectively risks and rewards are balanced during selected astrobiology mission operations. The PDRA will also be expected to: develop project publications (as sole or joint author as appropriate), attend project events including reading groups, assist with organising activities such as conferences and seminars, and help mentor the project's PhD student.
