The Open University is co-leading the NOMAD instrument, which is a spectrometer instrument designed to map trace gases and aerosols in the Martian atmosphere. Following launch in March 2016, the NOMAD instrument is now successfully in orbit around Mars. In this role, you will focus upon the preparation and implementation of aerosol retrievals from NOMAD spectra, involving the use of radiative transfer codes and retrieval algorithms. You will become part of the international NOMAD team, and have the opportunity to interact with the staff at the European Space Agency.
You will have a PhD in planetary science, physics or a closely related field, with knowledge and experience of atmospheric science including atmospheric retrieval methods; radiative transfer processes and numerical programming techniques. You will have the ability to communicate research results effectively.
