Postdoctoral position in lunar magnetism at the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris


The Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP) is inviting applications for a postdoctoral position in the broad field of lunar magnetism. This one-year position (renewable a second year) aims to decipher the origin of crustal magnetism by modeling spacecraft-derived magnetic field data. Potential research projects include modeling the direction of crustal magnetization, comparisons of derived crustal magnetization with measured properties of lunar samples, and correlations between magnetic anomalies and GRAIL gravity. As part of a larger project, the applicant will have the opportunity to collaborate with paleomagnetists, geophysicists, and geodynamo modelers at CEREGE (Aix en Provence) and ISTerre (Grenoble).


To apply, please provide a CV, publication list, contact information of two references, and a 2-page letter that motivates the applicant's interest in the topic and that describes prior relevant research experience. Please respond by email to Mark Wieczorek ( before March 23, 2015.
