Job description

A two-year position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow is available in the “Comparative Planetology” Team of the Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics at the University of Oslo, Norway. The position concerns modeling the interior dynamics and evolution of terrestrial and icy planetary bodies and how these link to surface expressions. The research is integrated in the “PLATONICS” project led by Dr. Tobias Rolf. Depending on the candidate’s background, one can choose between two potential research topics:

1) The role of rheological damage in the generation and diversity of planetary surface tectonics,
2) Deformation of the outer shells of icy satellites and material transport across them.
