Postdoctoral Position in Mars Orbital Data Analysis are invited for a postdoctoral position associated with the ERC e-Mars project dedicated to the evolution of Mars from the combination of orbital datasets of Mars, located at the laboratory of geology of Lyon at the University of Lyon (France). The research emphasis will be on Mars geology and surface processes using orbital data. Work on mixing morphological observations with spectral analysis will be encouraged.

Experience in analysis of martian orbital data is highly desirable. Other useful skills and experience include remote sensing, image processing, DTM processing and exploitation or crater counting techniques. Researchers with primary experience in planetary geology are welcome.

The appointment period is initially for one year starting autumn 2015. Please send a letter of interest, CV including two name potential referees, and publication list to Cathy Quantin-Nataf by email (

Please also contact Cathy Quantin-Nataf for any additional details regarding the research project or the application.
