PhD position on numerical and experimental investigation of asteroid and comet regolith, DLR, Berlin

The Institute of Planetary Research at the German Aerospace Center 
(DLR) in Berlin invites applications for a PhD position within the 
framework of a DLR junior research group. The group works on the 
interpretation of surface features related to volatile content on 
asteroids and comets via an interdisciplinary approach including 
cartographic preparations, geologic analysis of remote sensing data of 
space missions as well as experimental and numerical simulations. The 
successful candidate will work on the adaptation of a numerical code 
to simulate dynamical processes on asteroid and comet surfaces and the 
validation of the simulation by means of laboratory experiments and 
space mission data.

Candidates should hold a master degree in physics or closely related

Interested candidates should send a letter of motivation stating their 
research interests and relevant experience, a CV and copies of grade 
transcripts/diplomas. Applications should be submitted via the link
