NASA Postdoctoral Program Opportunity WIth NEXSS

Status Report From:
Posted: Sunday, June 12, 2016

The NASA Postdoctoral Program (NPP) offers U.S. and international scientists the opportunity to conduct important research while contributing to NASA's scientific goals. Applications are now being accepted for postdoctoral fellows to engage in research with NASA's Nexus for Exoplanet System Science (NExSS) advisors.

NExSS is a NASA research coordination network dedicated to the study of planetary habitability. The goals of NExSS are to investigate the diversity of exoplanets and to learn how their history, geology, and climate interact to create the conditions for life:

NExSS investigators also strive to put planets into an architectural context - as solar systems built over the eons through dynamical processes and sculpted by stars.

The NASA Postdoctoral Program application deadline is July 1, 2016. To encourage greater collaboration across the disciplines represented by the NExSS teams, applicants to this research opportunity are required to identify a project that will contribute to two teams. Specifically, the applicant must identify a primary and a secondary advisor - one from each of the two NExSS groups. Please see NExSS NPP for more information.
