Job opportunity: PRDA in experimental astrochemistry

The three-year postdoc is based within the Department of Physical Sciences at The Open University in Milton Keynes, UK. From the advert: You will study the aggregation processes that lead from proto-planetary conditions to the formation of small solar system bodies, such as comets and asteroids. You will be required to further develop and exploit a dedicated experimental apparatus designed for both laboratory (1g) and microgravity (~ 0g) conditions, to elucidate mechanisms and outcomes of collisions between icy grains, as a function of ice-phase, grain size and ice ‘porosity’. Head here for...
