The Department of Physics in the Faculty of Science at the University of Helsinki is now seeking to recruit a postdoctoral researcher to the planetary science research group starting from February 2023 for a fixed-term employment for three years. The postdoctoral researcher will work in a research project entitled Asteroids in the Deep: Characterisation of Sub-Surface of Near-Earth Asteroids the Moon and Mercury using radar observations. The postdoctoral researcher will participate in radar-observation analysis and the development of numerical models to study radar scattering processes in planetary regoliths. The postdoctoral researcher is also expected to participate in teaching and supervision duties at the Department of Physics, with a possibility to enroll in official pedagogical training programs. Previous experience in numerical modeling of electromagnetic scattering or related processes and programming skills using Python and/or Fortran are required. Experience with radar data analysis is preferred but not a requirement.
