Work Context

The candidate will be recruited at LATMOS on the Guyancourt site.
The Atmosphere, Media and Spatial Observations Laboratory is a joint research unit specializing in the study of fundamental physico-chemical processes governing terrestrial and planetary atmospheres and their interfaces with the surface, the ocean, and the interplanetary medium.

The LATMOS has developed a strong instrumental expertise, built innovative instruments deployed from the ground, orbit, or at the surface of the Earth or other bodies of the solar system.
The recruited candidate will be part of the Planetary Science team, more specifically in the group working on the characterization of planetary surfaces and subsurfaces by radars.

Constraints and risks

No specific risks
Numerous stays in Italy will be necessary in the frame of the mission.
