The Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at The University of Arizona expects to fill up to 2 positions at the level of Assistant, Associate, or Senior Research Scientist. These ranks are equivalent to the corresponding professorial ranks, but without a commitment for state support or teaching responsibility. Research Scientists report to the director of the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory.

Note: Salary and position title will be based on the qualifications of the selected candidate(s), who will be responsible for raising 100% of their salaries and research funds through their own extramural grants and contracts.

To be considered for an appointment at the rank of Assistant Research Scientist, candidates must demonstrate solid scientific accomplishments and clear promise of continued achievement.

Candidates for the position of Associate or Senior Research Scientist must demonstrate an internationally recognized record of distinguished scientific achievement and leadership in planetary and solar-system science.
