NASA, Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland. Permanent position. The Science and Exploration Directorate, Solar System Exploration Division (SSED), Planetary Systems Laboratory, is seeking a research scientist to provide expertise in spectroscopic study of small solar system bodies and planetary atmospheres. Studies include: 1) High resolution infrared spectroscopic characterization of comets, asteroids, and planetary atmospheres. 2) Development of LTE/non-LTE radiative transfer models capable of interpreting high resolution infrared spectra of small bodies, planets and exoplanets 3) Development of quantum-mechanical models of polyatomic molecules of astrobiological interest. 4) utilization of 3-D general circulation models of planetary atmospheres to understand transport of trace species detectable with high resolution infrared spectroscopy. Candidates must have research experience in planetary atmospheric science and surface composition; infrared spectroscopic observation, analysis, and data reduction; and radiative transfer and atmospheric modeling. U.S. citizenship required. To view the full vacancy announcement go to: Applications must be received by June 28, 2013.
